de Havilland Mosquito NF Mk. II Night Fighter

Here are some images of Revell/Paragon 1/32 scale de Havilland Mosquito NF MkII Night Fighter.

From Wikipedia"
The first production night fighter Mosquitos were designated NF Mk II. A total of 466 were built with the first entering service with No. 157 Squadron in January 1942, replacing the Douglas Havoc. These aircraft were similar to the F Mk II, but were fitted with the AI Mk IV metric wavelength radar. The herring-bone transmitting antenna was mounted on the nose and the dipole receiving antennae were carried under the outer wings. A number of NF IIs had their radar equipment removed and additional fuel tanks installed in the bay behind the cannon for use as night intruders. These aircraft, designated NF II (Special) were first used by 23 Squadron in operations over Europe in 1942. 23 Squadron was then deployed to Malta on 20 December 1942, and operated against targets in Italy.
Ninety-seven NF Mk IIs were upgraded with centimetric AI Mk VIII radar and these were designated NF Mk XII. The NF Mk XIII, of which 270 were built, was the production equivalent of the Mk XII conversions. The centimetric radar sets were mounted in a solid "thimble" (Mk XII / XIII) or universal "bull nose" (Mk XVII / XIX) radome, which required the machine guns to be dispensed with.

Gracias Diego - No fue fácil construir el conjunto es una pieza de resina del mercado de accesorios. Tiene un total nuevo interior cabina de resina además de que tiene ruedas ponderados de resina.

The resin is difficult to work. It would be interesting to take pictures of the process.

Todo el mundo hace eso. Me parece que tienden a perder espectadores cuando publico un proceso paso a paso

It's true. The blog is the least beguesmaker has five visits. It is also true that was the last I started to defend myself from accusations of the models that I did not. But we feel passionate modelers, we like to see how they do the other models. And you learn a lot.

Creo que si un modelador quiere saber cómo se hace algo que sólo se puede pedir.
Cuando hice mi HMS Surprise construir de esa manera. En el transcurso de la construcción que debe haber perdido casi 4000 visitas. Yo les recuperado, aunque más adelante.

It may be done a different article for each phase. Do not you think?
You know I do an article by model but has 50 photos.

Estoy tratando de atraer más a las masas de todos modos. Estoy tratando de mostrar el arte de la que en lugar de los aspectos técnicos de la misma. Parece que funciona.

Very nice, the night versions are curious, and hard to seems realistic.
Well done
