    I just picked up Hasegawa's Mosquito and I want to paint this particular plane (AZ-A DZ601) but I can't find a paint scheme anywhere. Does anyone know the colours it was painted as well as the camouflage scheme or where I could find that information?

    There's a profile of the aircraft in Osprey's "Mosquito Bomber/Fighter-Bomber Units 1942-45" By Martin W. Bowman, the scheme should be the usual (for the Mosquito) Day Fighter Scheme of Dark Green/Ocean Grey over Medium Sea Grey.
