The Mosquito was largely built out of plywood in order to save strategic materials. It was light, fast and agile. Versions of the Mosquito served in many roles. The B. Mk. IX was a light bomber. The RAF did most of their bombing at night (hence the black undersurfaces). Mosquitos were able to outrun most Nazi night-fighters (such as the Messerschmidt Bf 110), which is one of the reasons why they had the lowest loss-rate of all RAF bombers.
- Indeed and nore does the technic belt wheel. The older variant of the same part does exist in black, but doesn't seem to be very common. I certainly don't have any.
- is this what you mean by technic belt wheel? - [jaster]
- It is. So they are available in black! Well, I'll have to get me some of those.
- Both the belt wheel and this propeller part are available in black, although they are most common in light grey. I've used one on my Ka-57's rotor. - Aleksander Stein
- Not this type of propeller blade, but the older version (with three studs).
- I have at least two of the black belt wheels and two of the black three-way rotor-heads. I'll bring them over on Thursday - Lego Monster
- i would love to meet you guys
do you guys participate in showslike brickfest? - Mr. Wiles
- Yes and no. I've displayed models at a lot of shows in Britain, but never been to a show in the US.
- You should bring your stuff to the Portland Expo center sometime. Just, you know, fly halfway across the world. - Mr. Wiles
