Model of De Havilland’s Mosquito Aeroplane
Perfect choice for pilots, plane spotters and World War buffs.
During the two World Wars, Wycombe’s furniture factories were used to produce wooden aircraft parts to support the war effort. This included frames and wings for the de Havilland Mosquito, designed by Wycombe local Geoffrey de Havilland.
This balsa wood model was produced by a model maker, Mr Ewell, for his friend Jack Tranter who worked at Gomme’s furniture factory, where full sized Mosquito aircraft were produced during World War 2. The pair served together in the RAF during World War 2.
