The Mosquito fuselage was made as a ply/balsa/ply composite shell so there are no frames and stringers as in a metal fuselage. Similarly the wings are plywood sheets laid over closely spaced spruce stringers. None of which would produce the pattern you have applied. Same for the tailplanes.
As I said, a thoroughly beautiful model, and the metal parts of the airframe and the underside look fantastic, but I would certainly question the weathering patterns represented on the upper surfaces.

If I am free to comment on the experimental paint job then I would say that the weathering is a little heavy for my taste. However, I would have to admit that I have neither the patience nor the skill to achieve a similar result, let alone think of toning it down a little.
