$21.47

The Mosquito was one of the fastest operational aircraft in the world in 1941, and was used in a variety of roles, including medium bomber, reconnaissance, tactical strike, anti-submarine warfare, shipping attacks and night fighter duties. It was also used for a number of special operations, such as the dropping of agents and supplies into occupied Europe.

Over 7,700 were built. It was used by the Royal Air Force, the Royal Canadian Air Force, the Royal Australian Air Force and the United States Army Air Forces. It continued to be used in service after the war, and was retired from RAF service in 1956.

A highly innovative aircraft, and its use of wood construction was a major factor in its success. Wood is a strong and lightweight material, and it is also relatively easy to work with. This made the Mosquito easy to build and maintain, and it also gave it a high top speed.

The Mosquito was a popular aircraft with its crews, and it was known for its reliability and performance. It was also a very versatile aircraft, and it was used in a wide variety of roles. This made it an invaluable asset to the Allied air forces during the Second World War.

The FB Mk VI variant was powered by two Rolls-Royce Merlin 21 or 23 liquid-cooled V12 engines, each producing around 1,460 horsepower. The powerful engines enabled the Mosquito to reach a top speed of over 380 mph (610 km/h).

The armament varied depending on the mission. It typically carried four 20mm Hispano cannons in the nose and four .303 inch Browning machine guns in the wings. It could also carry various bombs, rockets, or torpedoes under its wings or in an internal bomb bay.

One of its most significant operations was the precision raid on the Amiens prison in 1944, where resistance fighters were held captive. Mosquito aircraft breached the prison walls, allowing the escape of hundreds of prisoners. Additionally, the Mosquito played a vital role in bombing raids, such as the famous attack on the Gestapo headquarters in Oslo, Norway.

This 1:72nd scale models comes in flight mode, so aircraft can be displayed on a plinth which is included in the pack.

    Excellent Model

    My first Mossie model was a balsa wood version made for me in 1947 by my father. It was the same version viz a FB variant but sadly this has not survived. So this A1 model brought back me many happy memories. I'm looking forward to seeing hopefully in the future models of the Coastal Command Mossie plus Beaufighter of the NE Scottish anti shipping strike wing.

    An elegant aircraft

    I bought this model following a visit to East Kirkby last year where there is a Mosquito doing taxy rides together with Lancaster "Just Jane". I had to have a model of a Mosquito... One suggestion for a future release - provide lowered undercarriage so the aircraft can stand on its own rather than be propped in the air by a stand.

    DH Mosquito FB MKVI

    Excellent model. Lovely detailing. Very balanced on the stand. Only issue is a slight misalignment of the aircraft ID Decal on the port side. Apart from that great !!

    Lovely Mosquito Model

    Lovely model overall. Just one slight blemish though. The aircraft ID insignia on the rear Port side is slightly misaligned. Other than that it’s a terrific reproduction that sits with really nice balance on the stand
