Sting of the Mosquito by rOEN911 Sting of the Mosquito by rOEN911

Hope you like it,

Programs used cinema4d and photoshop

The de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito was a British multi-role combat aircraft with a two-man crew that served during the Second World War and the postwar era. The Mosquito was one of the few operational front-line aircraft of the World War II era to be constructed almost entirely of wood and, as such, was nicknamed "The Wooden Wonder".[3] [nb 1] The Mosquito was also known affectionately as the "Mossie" to its crews[4] Originally conceived as an unarmed fast bomber, the Mosquito was adapted to many other roles during the air war, including low- to medium-altitude daytime tactical bomber, high-altitude night bomber, pathfinder, day or night fighter, fighter-bomber, intruder, maritime strike aircraft, and fast photo-reconnaissance aircraft.

Also the first "stealth" aircraft! Being made of wood, the British noticed it had a very small radar signature.

What they pretty much all said. Particularly regarding the fire on the starboard engine.

One question/pedanticism though: Do you have reference to back up the FB VI day bomber scheme with full Invasion Stripes on the wings and none on the fuselage?

Well, my references show Invasion Stripes as:-
1) None, pre June 1944.
2) Full wings and fuselage (Usually June and sometimes early July '44)
3) Under wings and/or mid-height fuselage (Jypically July to about Christmas 1944)
4) None again in 1945.

All excepting the identification stripes on the Hawker Typhoon which aren't but do look like full Invasion Stripes and should always be present.

Oh and I'm enough of an aviation anorak to ask abut reference rather than say that you're wrong because I know there are differences and exceptions to almost every camofalge and marking rule!
