The De Havilland Mosquito: A Comprehensive Guide for the Modeller
This offering is a revised and re-printed version of the previously released Modellers Datafile #1. The initial Modellers Datafile #1 contained excellent historical and scale modelling content, and that content is included in this new edition. The new release has been expanded to 176 pages and “included the additional model builds and in-box previews covering the significant new toolings that have appeared in the fifteen years since to series began, along with an updated list of currently available kits, accessories and decals”.
“When the first Datafile was published back in 1998 it was quite rightly regarded as the definitive book on modelling one of the most enduring and iconic aircraft of WWII.” This publication is the perfect companion and reference for a modeller wishing to build a Mosquito kit, regardless of scale.
You will find the “Modeller’s Cross-reference Colour Chart extremely helpful. A list of available kits is included showing the “Type” and “Subject” for each kit. A list of “Conversions & Accessories” is also included. The list includes the scale of these accessories and included items that are Acetate, etched brass, injection plastic parts, metal or pewter, resin, and vac-formed.
All of this data, combined with the many B&W and color images, and the illustrations within, this book is a must-have for your next Mosquito project.
This publication is highly recommended. Thanks to SAM Publications for providing this review sample to IPMS/USA.
