First entering service in 1941 the legendary 'all-wooden' Mosquito was one of the best twin-engined aircraft of its size to see action in World War II. The addition of radar turned the Mosquito into the RAF's premier night fighter, and it achieved great success in the defence of Britain, with some 600 raiders and 600 V1 rockets falling to its guns between 1942 and 1945. The design's superb performance, and ability to escape interception by enemy fighters also made the Mosquito the ideal choice for the RAF's photographic reconnaissance force. This wide range of roles across multiple theatres and air forces are all reflected in the variety of kits built and colour schemes shown throughout this book.

"Overall, this is another fine addition to Osprey Publications growing line of Modelling Manuals, and although a specializes manual in itself, I feel that any modeler of any skill level will benefit from it's words and pictures, as the methods, tips, and techniques discussed will definitely help the hobbyist to make his subjects much more detailed and realistic. Definitely a good read, and very much recommended for your bookshelf." --Mark Smith, AeroScale
