First Look

Aviaeology Decals has released the third installment of RCAF Mosquitos, this set covering the Mossies assigned to 404 Sqn of the RAF Coastal Command. These Mosquitoes carried some interesting variations as well as completely diifferent camouflage schemes than those carried by other RAF Mosquitoes.

This decal set comes on one sheet and provides markings for five aircraft plus a complete set of stencils and national markings for one model. The subjects covered in this set are::

  • Mosquito FB.VI, RF838, EO-A, 404 Sqn, 1945
  • Mosquito FB.VI, RF851, EO-H, 404 Sqn, 1945
  • Mosquito FB.VI, RF882, EO-Z, 404 Sqn, 1945
  • Mosquito FB.VI, RF856, EO-P, 404 Sqn, 1945
  • Mosquito FB.VI, RF880, EO-X, 404 Sqn, 1945

Mosquito Mosquito

The instructions are printed in black and white and provide essential detail information for each of the aircraft depicted here such as the types of propellers (narrow or wide chord) installed. The instructions have some photo illustrations of these aircraft which provide further useful detail information for the modeler.

This set will really enhance your favorite Mosquito FB.VI kit (mine favorite is the Tamiya kit).

My sincere thanks to Aviaeology Decals for this review sample!
