Due to it's legendary service, it would seem the Dehavilland Mossie hands down was the best. Recently I looked into the performance details of both planes and the was 410B had powerful engines and comparable speed. Both aircraft are similar in shape with protruding engines set close to the fuselage for better maneuverability. The Mossie, constructed of wood as it was, made it more stealthy. The Brit also had better, more compact radar. Was this then the major advantage? Or was it how the planes were used? If the RAF and Germans had swapped planes, would the RAF still dominate just because they used their resources more cleverly?
