Wow, I'm really impressed by the detail of this kit, and your ability to really make that detail stand out.  Can't wait to see more.

Spectacular , Toshi! This kit is still amazing me with the included details!

The Hien kit, although excellent in its own right, pales in comparison to the detail of this one. After this kit the Hien will seem like child's play lol!

 

Thank you sir!  With every step I progress to, I'm aghast to find what needs to be painted and assembled.  It is a complex system that Tamiya engineered.  Yet, it makes it fun and exciting build, difficult but exciting!

For Father's Day, I have a choice of either the Hien or a Zoukei Mura 1/32 kit.  Currently I'd like both but I am leaning towards the Zoukei Mura!  Thank you sir for always supporting me in my builds!

Thank you PFJN.  My impression of this kit is that this has to be Tamiya's flag ship model with so many detailed items.  Each step is a kit in of itself.  It's just amazes me.  Thank you sir for the opportunity to present you with my builds as well as your support!

Here's where the wing snaps into place and then you screw in a machine screw into the nut.  For good measure, I took some Tamiya Extra Thin Cement and went around the wings and fueselauge for good measure and insurance.

Toshi, I LOVE the work you've done on the pit! I need to learn how to do this kind of work. Since the Mossie is one of my favorites, I'm definitely going to need to get one of these kits. Mike

Thank you mawright20.  The cockpit was one of the first things to tackle.  There are many modelers that are more than willing to help you out.  That's how I learned.

Start a WIP, the posters will always give you advice and the support needed.  This kit is a bit pricy but well worth the cost.  The Tamiya Mosquito is their flag ship model.  Good look in your endevours.  Thank you so much for your support and always following my builds.
