De Havilland Mosquito NF Mk 38
The NF Mk 38 was the last variant of the Mosquito to be produced, with the final aircraft coming off the de Havilland construction lines on 15 November 1950. It was a slightly modified version of the NF Mk 36, powered by two stage Merlin 114A engines. It used the Mk IX radar set, often with a transparent radome. Most of the 101 NF Mk 36s were sold to overseas customers.

Mosquito Aces of World War 2, Andrew Thomas.
This volume concentrates on the fighter variants of the Mosquito, looking at their role as a defensive fighter, both over Britain and overseas and their use during the D-Day invasion to protect the fleet. Thomas also looks at the career of the Mosquito as a night intruder over Germany, where it became the scourge of the German night fighters, often being blamed for losses miles from the nearest Mosquito.
