The Wooden Wonder. The Termite's Delight. The Timber Terror. Or just plainly and simply the Mossie. de Havilland's versatile aircraft gets an expert portrayal by Joel.

Christos,
Thank you so much for your most gracious comments on the Mossie build. It was a labor of love, and honestly, the best model I've ever built.

Nice one Joel

It's great to see your Mossie on the Front Page where it belongs. I've long admired your builds, and in this one all the elements combined for a real stunner.

All the best

Excellent build with interesting markings. The used aftermarket products are a good addition to this still fine kit.

The shading effects makes this build look even more convincing.

Well done Joel !
