That looks really good Morris. I've followed this build with interest as it is on my most wanted list and I did miss it the first time around.

I would suggest that you try the two Typhoons that Airfix do in 1/24. That have taken the level of detail further than they did with the mosquito. I am sure you will enjoy them.

Looking really good Morris. Hopefully, I'll get mine finished soon. The man cave is getting a spruce-up at the moment, so everything is on hold. Let's hope the carpet monster hasn't been filling up the last few days (although I think he's fighting a losing battle against the carpet moths) :laughing-rolling:

Very nice build morris, looks very impressive, I would recommend the 1/24 Typhoon if your thinking of getting one.

Excellent work there. she has certainly come out well and is something to be proud of.

Yes... when SWMBO sets tasks and hints at an airfix Tiffy then take notice, There are two kits now and they are well worth the money. you could also hint that you need both kits to compare next to each other and because they are different versions of the same aircraft then they will look good side by side! :D

Ebay is a much better resource for the Tiffy kits as they tend to be lower prices than the RRP on the Airfix website.

Other than that... Excellent work on the Mosie
