As far as i can tell that mosquito they had didnt even have props or gear on it? at least i cant find any pictures as such, hurts my eyes just as much as seeing a spitfire with a daimler engine installed.

Tried to put together a reference chart for WWII RAF (Allied) Aircraft Colours using digital colour codes (RGB, #HEX & CMYK) referenced from British and Federal Standard Colour names and codes for the era.
Source references: 
British Aviation Colours of World War Two - Arms and Armour Press.
British Standards.
Federal Standards 595B.
Air Ministry Orders - 1939/45.
MAP Standard Aircraft Colours 1939/45.

“In 1940 I could at least fly as far as Glasgow in most of my aircraft, but not now! It makes me furious when I see the Mosquito. I turn green and yellow with envy. The British, who can afford aluminium better than we can, knock together a beautiful wooden aircraft that every piano factory over there is building, and they give it a speed which they have now increased yet again. What do you make of that? There is nothing the British do not have. They have the geniuses and we have the nincompoops. After the war is over I'm going to buy a British radio set – then at least I'll own something that has always worked.”

- Commander in Chief Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring -

From a purely parochial standpoint 75Sqn RNZAF would be lovely to see, and simple as they were allover silver with black spinners, anti-glare and codes (Air Force Museum of New Zealand photo):

Take a wooden plane and paint it metal... I see what they did there 😉

I'd like to see an option for the "TseTse" (pronounced "Tet-see", after a rather nasty little African fly that gives humans African trypanosomiasis, also known as "sleeping sickness").

 

The TseTse Mosquito was armed with a Molins 57mm (6 pounder) semiautomatic filed artillery piece firing a solid steel projectile at high velocity.

 

I think the RAF fielded about 60 of them in the anti shipping/anti U Boat, role.

 

Their pilots loved them.

Can't imagine what it must have felt like for the poor chap strapped into the rear fuselage for the entire flight!
