The Mosquito was one of the best twin-engined fighter/fighter-bombers of its size to see action in World War II. With the addition of AI Mk IV radar the RAF's premier nightfighter achieved great success both in the defence of Britain and on roving patrols over occupied Europe. The design's superb performance, and ability to outpace enemy fighters made it the ideal choice for the RAF's photographic reconnaissance force. In small numbers it was taken up by the USAAF to cover campaigns over northwest Europe. These differing roles are all reflected in the variety of kits built and colour schemes shown throughout this title.
