Corgi item no. AA32810
Potograph Copyright © Collin Riley 2005-2013



Dear, dear, a smear. This looks for all the world like a thumb smear. Not so apparent are two smears of black paint near the yellow arrow. The smearing had to be done at the factory, because the paint was solidly applied.
Mosquito, FB VI, F for Freddie, 487 (New Zealand) Sqn., Group Capt. P. C. Pickard, Amiens Raid, 1944

Legends collection. A fine model with good colors, neat little pilot figures, well done landing gear, and fine detailing on wings and fuselage.

Prop drop. For some reason the propellers drop down, especially on the starboard side. Look at the close-up view and you'll see a 1/16 inch gap between the top of the propeller hub and the top of the nacelle. I've check other photographer's pictures of the model, and the same problem appears there, also. Either the hole the propeller shaft fits in is too large, or the propeller shaft is too small.
