"SMN report: Builder Suresh Nathan comments on the kit (header pic): "The Airfix 1/24 Mosquito is a beast! The model engineers designed the thing the old-school way on a draftsman board – a far cry from the current technology of cad cam design. It builds like those nostalgic Airfix kits of 40 years ago. They are all plastic with the usual ‘Airfix' styrene. It was quite pleasurable applying Humbrol polystyrene to this plastic – much like Airfix glue in those little snap off tubes of old – but I digress…."

Blimey, what a kit.

It's so heavy the plastic undercarriage keeps breaking under the weight. It weighs over 3kg.

It's mahoosive!!!

Great kit though.

You'd need a new house to store it in I think.
