Twin Rubber Power
By DENNIS NORMAN
This model is based upon the first bomber variant flown in 1941. Built rugged but light this plane flies fast and low. Flights in calm or slightly breezy conditions average 40 yards or better with the model seldom rising higher than ten feet. She's no endurance champ and loops are out of the question but properly trimmed, this model flies well enough to make you proud to own her.
One of the immortals of World War II, the de Havilland Mosquito revolutionized bomber concepts of its day. Built almost entirely of wood and carrying no defensive armament, its speed was equal to or faster than that of contemporary fighters. Indeed, the speed and maneuverability of the bomber prototype was so remarkable that a, fighter version was also built.
