The "Wooden Wonder" makes an appearance in highly impressive 1/32 scale! That was the nickname given to the De Havilland Mosquito series of aircraft, an ingenious and beautiful design which saw the versatile airplane made almost entirely out of wood. Its outstanding speed and range ensured that the FB Mk.VI was used in a range of missions, including raids on important targets and infrastructure in the German homeland.  It is often said that, until the advent of the Messerschmitt Me262, the German Luftwafffe did not have an adequate response to the "Mossie."

At 515 mm in wingspan, this masterpiece captures the elegant twin-engine form of the FB Mk.VI with astounding detail.  This newly-tooled model was researched using real Mosquitos. The cockpit interior is realistically depicted, right down to the details such as the pilot's seat cushion. Separate parts recreate bomb bay and wing underside 500lb bombs, plus 50-gallon drop tanks. Three figures are included, as are 3 marking options and masking stickers. A 12-page B5 size commemorative booklet includes color photographs and a detailed history of the Mosquito. 

 

  • Highly-detailed cockpit, plus depiction of four machine guns complete with ammo cases and belts.
  • Paintable tires use assembly tread sections and capture compression caused by plane weight.
  • Choose open or closed bomb bay. 20mm auto cannons and two 500lb bomb parts are found inside.
  • Tail wheel mud guard and strut are depicted. Left and right sides of horizontal stabilizer are part of the same piece, as on the actual aircraft.
  • The kit includes parts to recreate propellers with the early variant slim line blades, or wider paddle type blades.
  • Detailed 4-piece engine cowling offers a selection of standard or longer intake-fitted tropical filter parts.
  • The Merlin engines are breathtakingly recreated, including depictions of the supercharger. Just like on the real Mosquito, the engine mount and landing gear struts are integrated.
  • The model can be assembled with exhausts uncovered or covered.
