Messy Moskito - part 3

It's finished at last.  Given the poor quality of the kit parts it doesn't look too bad - although I reached that conclusion before my recent eye test...
I kept the paintwork pretty basic - mid grey blotches over a pale grey base coat.  Interior detail is minimal - no crew figures are supplied with the kit (this seems to be something of a trend among manufacturers) and I had none in the spares box.

Turned out nice that. Given the difficulties you had you should be pleased. Now you just need a few heavies for it to intercept.

Cheers,

Pete

I agree, it turned out really well. I think we tend to see our own imperfections more readily. Very well done model.

Nice looking plane, shame it wasn't a success irl.

Thanks. Perhaps it'll have to use my Airfix Lancaster for target practice?

It's certainly a bit different.

We'll have to see if it's any better in a game.

Its a purse out of a sow ear. Nice turnaround Tim.

It's still a pig's ear, but it's a built and painted pig's ear....
