The Mosquito almost never existed were it not for the efforts of DeHavilland, who petitioned repeatedly to the RAF command to have his aircraft accepted. Built almost in its entirety of plywood, this amazing and very versatile aircraft became one of the most successful of WW2. Powered by RR Merlin engines, she had an amazingly high speed and maneuverability for her time, and owing to her lightweight construction could carry a sizeable bomb load as well. The Mossie, or Timber Terror was originally produced as a light bomber, but also became a night fighter, ground attack platform, raider, coastal patrol craft, amongst other uses. She served with distinction throughout the war.
Included conforming figure add-ons: * 1 set of 12 conforming and fully pose able 250lb bombs is included. * These 'bombs' conform to the Mosquito and are individually pose able so that the user can make them fall away and tumble as they drop. * 1 conforming prop blur prop to add a sense of motion to the aircraft in flight.
All flight control surfaces, rudder, landing gear, and moveable parts can be accessed in the scene tree for the skeleton of the Mosquito.
