It’s Workbench time again and in this latest edition, we feature a fascinating modelling project intended to recreate a famous aviation scene from 10th May 1945, which involves one of the most famous Allied wartime aircraft.

 

We also have some spectacular Hawker Typhoon Ib build images and announce the winner of our latest Customer Images competition.

 er, the model of LR503 'F' entered appears to have single stage Merlins .........  afaik the Mosquito B.IX had 2 stage merlins, as shown in the photo detailing the mission markings.

Oops.

Does it matter?

I think that's called artistic licence. If you look closely at the model it also has a fighter nose and windscreen instead of the bomber style, but I should be surprised if more than one person in a hundred would notice that when the model is on display. At the end of the day the modeller has produced a great looking 1/24 scale diorama from what was available, I'm sure he was aware of the differences when building it, but there's not an easy way to correct them in 1/24 (I had a quick scan of the internet and couldn't find any conversion sets).
