De-Haviland Mosquito Mk.XVIII

H34 White - Dials and Buttons
H100 Red Brown - Dials and Buttons
H30 - Dark Green - Dials and Buttons

Landing Tyres,
Front machine guns
H87 - Steel Grey - Rocket Racks
H53 - Gunmetal - Landing Gear

Over-all, a good build. Nose conversion for mk.XVIII tricky, but with a hot knife, becomes easier. Good camo./paint sceme, and average decals. Front machine guns and mast had a few teething problems, but only due to them being fragile parts, aswell as fitting rockets and bombs/extra fuel tanks, due to the partially filled holes.
