    OK, by popular request, here's what I came up with for our favorite wooden wonder. I didn't include unbuilt marks, or those marks that were differently numbered to indicate Canadian or Australian manufacture.

    OK. More work patching up my cards to match the stats.

    And yet another update to the Unofficial Stats spreadsheet, too.

    Gee, Mike, I hear crickets. I guess not many people were interested in Mossie stats after all.

    They are out there, but don't know it. The site is in the pendulum swing away from making minis towards just buying them. I have seen it many times. The focus of the group tends to go back and forth. When the promise of new planes rises, the interest in making them yourself wains. It will come back, supply and demand is in full swing. I am less affected, the new minis become a distraction for me and the elves, nothing like making your own for us! Thanks for all your efforts Karl and Mike! Three thousand cheers from the elves, then back to work, there are Ju88's and Do 17's to paint!! . . . before they get released any how . . .

    So, do I go in and fix the cards, or wait for a new USC Sheet?

    Ok, I'm not a cricket! I just saw this thread and love it. Thanks Karl.

    Go ahead, and fix the Mosquito cards, Mike.
    I'm getting pulled in a lot of directions right now, so when new UC planes are done is not known.
    Hopefully in a couple months. Requests would help prioritizing the lists.
