THIS EXCELLENT VIDEO takes us behind the scenes to show the thought process behind creating a state of the art model kit, here the Airfix 1:72 scale De Havilland Mosquito.

SMN report: YouTuber Ralph Ford sums up the video in his comment: "...What a great video. To see what the designer was striving for and to listen to a designer who is a builder is the way all kits should be designed. I hope to see more of these types of video in the future. Congrats on a beautiful, practical designed kit. PS other companies had better take a heads up here. This is the future and this gentleman is the type of designer you need to be employing if you want to stay competitive. Airfix has gone from from to second tier to innovator with this business model."

The kit itself looks pretty good. If you are a 1:72 scale builder and keen on World War II subjects, then building this Mosquito is likely to be a must-do, especially with long winter evenings ahead.
