The De Havilland Mosquito was one of the great heroes of World War II and of those that survived, many were used by flying schools for training purposes. It is in that role that our latest 1:72 scale "Mossie" appears, as deployed to the Advanced Flying School at RAF Brize Norton in 1949.
Decorated in the grey/green camouflage scheme, its HR 242 identity is printed in black on the underside of the wings while the upper sides feature the RAF roundel. Further white lettering is printed WFMO on the port side and FMOW on the starboard side with the RAF roundel intersected between the letters.
It is a change to have a non-combative Mosquito in the range of military aircraft, serving in peacetime rather than facing another airborne enemy aircraft.
