Behold the Wooden Wonder in Stunning 1/32!
Drawn up as a high speed, unarmed bomber, the twin engine De Havilland Mosquito fulfilled that role and so many more for the RAF and other Allied air forces during WWII, taking advantage of performance so astonishing it earned the aircraft its nickname: Wooden Wonder. (That, and the fact it was made largely of wood, in contrast to most of its contemporaries.) The FB Mk.VI fighter-bomber variant, which first appeared in the skies in Spring 1943, packed a punch with four 7.7mm nose-mounted machine guns and four powerful 20mm auto-cannons, plus the ability to carry four 500lb bombs. With around 2,700 produced it was the most prolifically manufactured Mosquito variant, and this high performance, multi-role aircraft was relied on to attack sensitive enemy targets such as SS facilities, V1 flying bomb sites, and munitions factories, taking advantage of its precision low-altitude bombing skills.

★Magnets are used to affix engine cowlings to the model, making them removable after construction, as are the nose cover and spinners.

★Detailed cockpit features staggered seats and radio equipment. Note 7.7mm machine gun ammunition belts.

★Also included in the kit is a seated navigator figure studying a map, who can be installed alongside his pilot.


★This image shows the model with exhaust flame damper cover, tropical filter engine cowling and paddle blade propeller.

★Merlin 25 engines feature one-stage, two-speed supercharger parts. The connection of supercharger and landing gear support mirrors the real Mosquito.

★In order to accurately capture the compression and tread pattern on the tires, this model employs plastic parts in their recreation.


★Choose whether to equip main wing undersurfaces with 500lb bombs or 50gal drop tanks, each accurately depicted.

★A choice of flat (left) or curved (right) parts is available to depict the glass panel on the right side of the canopy.
