Airfix's 1/48 scale Mosquito FB.VI is available online from Squadron.com

 

Description


The old Airfix 1/48 scale Mosquito FB.VI is still quite a good kit, even when compared to the newer Tamiya offerings.

I collected the kit and all the Paragon resin parts to make a PR34 long before Tamiya announced their new range.

 

 

The items from Paragon required to make a PR34 were new 2 stage engine nacelles, bulged bomb bays and camera ports, canopy. Also added from Paragon were the dropped flaps and bulged wheels. Etched metal parts were from an old Airwaves set providing good detail for the scratched built cockpit, radiators and wheel wells.

 

 

The kit was finished as an aircraft based at the Photo Reconnaissance Development Unit at RAF Benson in 1948 finished in overall PRU Blue.
