The De Havilland Mosquito, dubbed the wooden wonder, is a twin engine, 2-crew light bomber that played a significant role in the fight for air supremacy over Europe in WW2. Powered by 2 Merlin engines, not many aircraft were as quick, or sounded as good, as the Mosquito. Acting as a reconnaissance aircraft, strategic bomber, and pathfinder, the Mosquito was well known and feared by enemy pilots. Now Tamiya has lovingly recreated this aircraft in 1:48 scale in three different wartime patterns.
I have chosen to replicate the camouflage Royal New Zealand Airforce 487 squadron aircraft operating out of RAF Hunsdon in Hertfordshire. This particular Mosquito was lost on March 26, 1944.
Adorned with beautiful box art, you can almost hear the roar of the Merlin engines just looking at the kitset. Inside are sprues molded in grey, and clear parts. The kit is jam-packed with a raft of parts to replicate the RNZAF plane, or the matte black night fighter edition; everything from rockets to 500lb bombs are included.
