Eugene’s nephew’s collection of unbuilt model airplanes

A little finishing touch on Marcel’s Mosquito…

Now back to more serious business I hope.

These model kits are part of Eugene’s nephew’s collection of unbuilt model airplanes. 

 

I would wish they were mine since they are collector’s items. That’s what I told the rightful owner.

All these model kits were in an old cardboard box along with this Monogram Mosquito.

Jacques Gagnon, Eugene Gagnon’s nephew, bought them some 50 years ago, and just like my collection, they were still in their original boxes.

You should know by now all about Eugene Gagnon a French-Canadian Mosquito pilot with 23 Squadron don’t you? If you don’t, you should Google his name to find out why I have not built model airplanes since 2010.

I told Jacques earlier this year that I was going to build his Mosquito as a memorial to his uncle. Since I already had one, I am going to build two!
