Thread: AIM Mosquito

  1. #1

    Default AIM Mosquito

    The other day I received an order from Dave at AIM. I thanked him for the new models and asked if he would consider makeing a model of the Mosquito. He replied a few days later that he pulled out a mold he has and is working on the new model. He sent me another mail asking which version do I think people would want as there are some differences in each version. The versions he mentioned were the Recon/Fighter/Night fighter and bomber. So here I am asking what version you would like ?
    I would think
    1. Fighter
    2. Bomber
    3. Recon
    4. night fighter
    Input from all is welcome so I can pass this off to Dave.

    I was on the fence for fighter or bomber first. Now I have to say bomber first. Hope to hear more from others.

    My list goes...

    1. Bomber
    2. night fighter
    3. recon
    4. fighter

    Glad you prompted Dave. He seemed willing when I mentioned he do a Mosquito a couple months ago.

    Some photo-reconnaissance Mosquitos were converted to bombers and vice versa. The fighter. fighter-bomber and night-fighter Mosquitos were superficially similar, so, perhaps there is only a need for two models - a glazed nosed model and a solid nosed one.

    Of course, if you want models carrying rockets, a Mollins gun, a torpedo or a Highball bouncing bomber, that is a different matter.

    I'll be all over these like a rash! Dare we hope for more than one version? After all Dave does various flavours of other aircraft.

    In order of preference:

    1. Fighter
    2. Bomber
    3. Recon
    4. Night fighter

    That would get my vote too. Would really like to see one or more of these completed

    Thanks for the input. I will pass this on to Dave and hopefully we can have a Mosquito soon. I also passed this on to Kevin MISCMINI so he might look into decals for Misquito units.

    Received a reply from Kevin (MISCMINI) that he has one set for the Mossie (305 Sqdrn) and is working on others. Just checked and see it is a Polish Sqdrn. Nice

    Received my latest AIM order this week and Dave says he might have a Mosquito next month. I think the bomber version. When I find out I will post the info so get your list together.

  16. #16

    I just put in an order and mentioned how I look forward to getting some Mosquitos. Every nudge helps!

  17. #17

    I told Dave I think there would some interest in those planes. I will hold off my next order to see if he gets them done.

  18. #18

    Default

    Think I’ll hold off for a bit too. This will definitely fill a gap in the market.

    I second that as I still have AIM Hurricanes and Lancasters to start let alone finish. Yes I'm a bit behind with the aero stuff as all my receny spare time has been chewed up by 15mm Napoleonic Prussians and 6mm ACW.

    Bob, working on a Mosquito bomber and Mosquito fighter-bomber.

    OK guys just got this from Dave (AIM) today. So we may have the plane in the next few weeks. I said there would be much interest in these planes so I do hope there is and he will get a few orders for his efforts to get us these planes.

    Knowing the guys behind the scenes I would guess the new Mossie is a derivative of the one I was given . . . seems like yesterday . . . https://www.wingsofwar.org/forums/sh...=pour+mosquito

    Sorry the post works fine on all 3 of my different platforms, i will try to repost the pics . . . Maybe one of you could search the site for "pour me a mosquito" under resin and metal on the hobby thread . . .

    Here's the Mosquito story from Ron to me years ago, started my venture into resin molding with his help and permission. He left me with a resin Mossie to try my skills on . . .

    Bob you must have something in your cache that logs you in automatically.

    Huh. Can't see the photo, either (404 login timeout... who chose "404" I wonder?) Dave's pics are pretty, however. As per usual.

    It may have something to do that I am copying it from an email. Hopefully I may get the real thing in the next week or so. Then I can take a photo of them.

    Received an email from Kevin (MISCMINI) that he received a model from Dave (AIM) to use to scale decals for the Mossie. We may see a Mosquito sooner then I thought.

    Heard from Dave today and he is just about finished with the Mosquito. From what he said you can order any version of it so get your orders ready for the New Year.

    Just checked MISCMINI site and Kevin has decals for 105 and 305 SQDS. As always I will keep you informed of what is happening. Have to give Dave and Kevin a break until after the New Year.
