Looking for de Havilland Mosquito gifts? Building a Mosquito? Advertise your latest project with this original art work memorabilia.
All of the de Havilland Mosquito gifts on this page, feature the above painting.
This original artwork was painted for me by Kelsey Dixon. She is a full size pilot who finances her flying, partly from fees she earns from selling her art. I think she does a great job! I just supply her with the photos of an airplane I want to feature and give her an idea of the pose I would like and she very quickly comes up with results like this.
The Mosquito first flew in 1941 and entered service with the RAF a year later. It was known as the "Wooden Wonder" or affectionately by it's crews as "Mossie".
She was built primarily of plywood and balsa, formed in molds. This was a big advantage in wartime, due to the potential shortage of aluminium.
Originally conceived as an unarmed fast bomber, the Mosquito was adapted to many roles and served through the war and after.
In 1941 she was maybe the fastest airplane in the World.
All the de-Havilland Mosquito gifts shown on this page, are available from Zazzle.
Zazzle is a POD company. Now this is a new industry that, like almost all of the new digital, software based technologies is full of three letter acronyms!
POD means Print On Demand. One unique feature is it is financially viable to produce one off parts.
It uses a machine called a Direct To Garment (Or DTG for short!). This unit is like a large format Ink Jet Printer (IJP?!) with a flat table that slides into the machine, under the print head. The garment is quickly printed and then slides out. This is the same basic technology that is used in desk top printers.
For t-shirts a flat anvil is used for the table and the garment is stretched over this. For other parts different holding fixtures to suit the part being printed are featured.
The software used is RIP (Raster Image Processor). I promise that that is the last acronym I will use!
Ink technology has lately improved so that wash-ability is very high for all the clothing items available.
Zazzle absolutely promises 100% satisfaction or your money is returned, no questions asked.
