The De Havilland Mosquito is a British twin-engine, two-seat military aircraft of World War II in service in 1941. It was produced in different versions and quickly became a universal machine capable of long flights. It is considered one of the most successful fighter-bombers used during World War II. It was hailed as a wooden miracle by RAF pilots. Although the Mosquito was a modern machine, it was mainly made of spruce wood, plywood and balsa, covered with linen.
This new set from COBI consists of 452 blocks. The model has many movable elements such as rotating wheels with rubber tires, rotating propellers and ailerons. In the cabin, you can place a pilot figure and a head imitating the co-pilot. The block model was produced in a paint scheme of a historic model with its own name "Black Rufe". All decorations are pad-printed. No stickers in this set! This is a great model for all aviation enthusiasts. Thanks to the faithfully reproduced proportions and details of the aircraft, the model will be perfect as a decoration for any collection of young and adult history and aviation enthusiasts.
