de Havilland Mosquito
British Medium Attack Bomber
Known as the "Wooden Wonder" and the "Timber Terror", this unorthodox design used a plywood structure of spruce and balsa when wood and fabric construction was considered outdated. Because of its speed and agility, and the de Havilland Mosquito proved to be one of the best all around planes in the RAF during WW II. As a medium bomber it performed un-escorted raids deep into enemy held air space. As a fighter it was a match for the best the Germans had to offer. And as a photo-recon plane it could fly in low over it's target and get away before the Germans could react. One reason for the Mosquito's success was that it was one of the world's first stealth aircraft because it's wooden structure did not show up on German radar screens! Now you can enjoy the fun of twin engine performance. This reproduction kit, originally made by READYMADE MODELS CO. of London England, is now available to you through Black Hawk Models!
The American Classic Series of kits by Black Hawk Models present famous designs of the past in modern kit form. Some of the models in this line were designed by famous designers and many have won trophies in National competition. American Classic models are more advanced than the standard Black Hawk Models kits. They require more building skills, including the use of covering materials in many cases. These planes require larger engines and generally provide better, more stable flight characteristics. While Junior Ace and Black Hawk Models FS series models are good starting points, the American Classic models are the goal that modelers strive to achieve.
