The first bomber variant to enter service was the B Mk IV, initial examples of which were issued to No 2 Group’s No 105 Sqn at Swanton Morley, in Norfolk, in November 1941. Considerably faster than the unit’s previous Blenheim Mk IVs, powered by inline rather than radial engines, and made of wood instead of metal alloy, the Mosquito initially proved a challenging mount for both air and groundcrew alike.

Description

Truly an example of engineering ingenuity born out of the desperation of war, the legendary ‘all-wooden’ Mosquito was perhaps the best twin-engined fighter-bomber of its size to see action in World War 2.

Norwich-based Martin Bowman has written several volumes on the Mosquito, plus countless works on the USAAF. Based in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, Chris Davey has illustrated more than 20 titles for Osprey’s Aircraft of the Aces, Combat Aircraft and Aviation Elite Units series since 1994. He is one of the last traditional airbrush artists in the business and has become Osprey’s artist of choice for both USAAF fighters and RAF subject matter, proving his undoubted skill when dealing with large aircraft subjects such as the Halifax and Sunderland.
