ReReleased 1/48th Mossie
Wonderland does it again! Upon receipt of the kit I checked thoroughly and found some transparent parts missing. I contacted Wonderland who contacted Hornby and just over a week later I received the missing parts(a complete small transparent frame).Upon building the kit it is obvious that whoever was moulding the kit didn't do a good job as they had blown the mould and there was flash around all the small pieces and the large parts were twisted slightly. After paring the flash away and using clamps the kit has gone together fine although there is a lot of extra pieces left over. Wonderland done an excellent job of sorting the problems out. Its just a pity that Airfix dropped the American markings from the kit as I am sure it will suffer sales because of it.

My purchase review
I am very pleased with my purchase, it arrived the following day in a well wrapped package. The model is as described and works wonderfully. I will definitely recommend buying from Wonderland Models.

A lot of kit for your money here - although instructions & markings are for the photo-reconnaissance version, there are all the pieces to make a fighter-bomber FB VI with underwing rockets, bomber with 4 conventional 500lb bombs or the 4000lb "cookie" and its associated bulged bomb doors. (although no instructions are included for these other versions they wouldn't be too difficult). Compared to Tamiya version bomb-bay detail is a bit sparse, and it would have been nice to have invasion stripe decals - painting the stripes may give a better result but is a bit tedious. Credit to Airfix for producing the model in appropriate coloured light blue plastic rather than the ubiquitous grey, and also providing well detailed pilot & navigator figures -essential if you want to display this beautiful aeroplane in flying configuration.
