Nice work on the entire modification in transforming the Mosquito from piston engine to jet engine.  It certainly looks like an early jet engine bomber development now that you have it finished in a nice coat of paint.

Is a cool transformation.  Very '46    8)
Notice is reversed in that straight leading edge changed to straight trailing edge and leading edge has about same sweep angle as Mosquito trailing edge.  Looks great but do not understand what was done to make that happen.

The wing was changed by removing the coolers in the wing leading edge and fill the area with plastic card and shape a new leading edge. The wing root was extended with more plastic card so it could be cut in a new angle.

This is a great conversion - familiar at first sight, then it looks...different. Believable, too.

Here is the sketch, that the model is based on.

Even better with landing gear,  niiiiice  :smiley:

Treatment of engine-landing gear combo is extra creative.  Tail plane dihedral helps clear jet exhaust.  :smiley:

Nice result and the landing gear arrangement is... unusual. I think that's the first design I've seen where the gear retracts in front of the engine. One perk of a centrifugal engine that hadn't occurred to me.

Just a tiny quibble . . .  but weren't red markings  banned in the Pacific and CBI theatres, to avoid confusion, hence the blue and white only roundels and fin flashes ? I'm thinking especially about the red warning markings on the intakes.
