  1. DH.82 Tiger Moth Correction/Update sets (For ICM) 1:32 CMK by Special Hobby The new ICM Tiger Moth kit was a welcome addition to their 1/32 line of new tool aircraft. CMK now bring us some update sets for this kit. All are cast to their ususal high standards. Main Wheels & Tailskid (5139) This set brings us the main wheels with sag in the tyres (perhaps a bit too much?) there are also two different sets of inner wheel hubs, and three different sets of outer wheel hubs including a pair with the DH logo, There is in addition a new tail skid from a harder resin material. Instrument Panels with Compasses and Coaming (5140) This set replaces both cockpits instrument panels and coamings. There are new compasses included with OE mounting brackets. A sheet of decals provides individual instruments for both panels. Luggage Box (5137) If you want tot open up some panels on your Tiger Moth then this set allows you to open up the luggage area behind the rear cockpit. As well as all the structure for the area an item of luggage is also provided to fill the bay. Correction Propeller (5138) This is a new drop in replacement propeller with separate front and rear hubs. Review samples courtesy of
  2. DH.82 Blind Flying Hood (Q48382 for Airfix) 1:48 CMK Quick & Easy by Special Hobby Blind flying hoods are used on Training aircraft to simulate instrument training while not having to fly at night or in bad weather. On the Tiger Moth this fits stowed behind the rear cockpit and pulls forward. This set arrives in CMK’s Quick and Easy green backed envelope. it requires minimal clean up from the small this casting block. This will add something extra to your Airfix Tiger Moth.

  4. https://www.facebook.com/ICM.Models/posts/1508778282648438 Not sure (and tried to do a search and nothing came up) if this has been notied - ICM seem to be teasing a silhouette of a Tiger Moth on their Facebook feed at the moment asking people to guess the plane in 1/32nd scale! Possible incoming announcement of a large scale Tiger Moth?
  5. de Havilland DH.82A Tiger Moth with WWII RAF Cadets (32037) 1:32 ICM The DH.82 Tiger Moth really needs no introduction. Designed by Geoffrey de Havilland and built by the de Havilland Aircraft Company the aircraft served as the the primary trainer for the Royal Air Force from 1932 until the 1950s when it was replaced by another de Havilland product the Chipmunk. Developed from the DH.60 Moth the DH.82 was called the Tiger Moth. The original aircraft was Powered by a 120 hp de Havilland Gipsy III piston engine. The DH.82A was Powered by a 130 hp de Havilland Gipsy Major piston engine and could be fitted with a hood over the rear cockpit for blind flying instruction. Further variants would be the DH.82C fitted with an enclosed hood for cold weather operations in Canada; and the Queen Bee which was an unmanned radio controlled target drone. The Kit This is a welcome new tool kit from ICM. The parts are crisp and well moulded consistent with ICMs modern tooling. The kit arrives on 3 main sprues of parts with a small clear sprue. Construction starts with the modeler drilling 4 holes in each fuselage side. The instrument panels then go in, with instruments being provided as decals, however each is a separate decal and not just one sheet for a panel. Bulkheads then go in behind each cockpit. The fuselage can now be closed up. At the rear the tailplanes go on which is a single part then the area in front of them goes on, which is a different part for each of the two decal options. The rudder can then be attached also (This has the tail skid moulded on). At the front the engine is built up and added to its bearers, The completed unit can then go on the front of the fuselage. The top engine cowl then goes one followed by the sides and at the cockpit openings the fold down sides go on. At the very front the engine front cover goes on. To finish of this section the windscreens can go on, and behind the rear cockpit the blind flying hood if fitted. We now move to the lower wing. This has a single top half with split left/right lowers. First up a number of holes need to be drilled into the wing. The top of the centre wing section from the base of the cockpit. To this part are added the control runs, rudder pedals and control columns. next up the two seats need to be fitted. Once the seats are in the top of the lower wing can be fitted to the fuselage. The struts for the top wing on the engine cowl and wings can now be added in. Now we move to the lower of the top or upper wing. Again this upper wing is split with a single lower part, and left/right uppers. Before the lower part of the upper wing can be fitted again a series of holes must be drilled. This wing can now be fitted while lining up with all the struts. Once this is on the central fuel tank is fitted followed by the left and right upper wings. Flipping the model over then fits the left/right lower main wings, and the engine under cover then goes on. Now the main structure is together we are on the finishing straight so to speak. To the upper wing the leading edge slats are attached and the the lower wing the ailerons. Next up its the turn of the basic undercarriage. The main struts and shocks are all moulded as one part to which the wheels attach, the whole unit then fits to the fuselage where the front and rear bracing struts then go on. At the tail the tailplane bracing struts attach as well. Control for the ailerons then go onto the main wing with control horns going onto the tailplanes and rudder. The prop goes on the front to finish things off. If the modeller wants to rig there model then this is shown throughout the instructions. Decals Two options are provided for on the decal sheet: No.3 Flight Training Sqn, RAF Grantham 1938 No.25 (Polish) Elementary Flyight Training School, Summer 1944 The decals look nicely printed with no issues. Figures This new set from ICM was released on its own, and these are now boxed with the Tiger Moth kit. There is one pilot getting ready for flying, two other cadets and a senior officer with a pipe. In general the moulding is crisp and clean with plenty of detail. Like all of ICM's recent figures these are well sculpted and should build up well. Conclusion It is great to see ICM releasing new tools of aircraft like this in 1/32. Highly recommended. Available in the UK from importers H G Hannants Ltd. Review sample courtesy of

  7. Here's my Airfix 1/48 Tiggie, from the box except for tape harnesses, the SBS rigging set and Xtradecals. It's a delightful kit and one of Airfix's best. Two slightly odd aspects are (1) they provide three props and no indication of what they are - I chose the one with the nicest shape but no idea if it's correct or not - the photo shows the other two; (2) the wheels are handed and have moulded flats on the bottom but assembling them (as far as I can tell) correctly, the flats are oriented the wrong way! Some gentle twisting got them parallel to the ground without breaking the wheels off the axle. It's the second biplane I've rigged. The first was the Walrus, using guitar wire. The SBS set was OK and fitted well but it is expensive. All power to those building 1/72 biplanes - my fingers are almost too fat to do 1/48. I emailed Hannants to ask if their decal designer had a photo of the full size aircraft to show whether the anti-spin strakes were fitted but he hadn't. So how did he design the decals? The scheme is the same as one of the ones previously offered by AZ in 1/72 so I wonder........ I'm becoming a bit jaded with Xtradecals. These silvered badly in spite of a glossy Kleer coat and some Micro Set and, like the Hunter ones, the yellow is a bit out of register with a shadow around the edge of the 'A'. Adhesion wasn't brilliant either. It's a nice companion to my now rather ancient Magister. Thanks for looking!
  8. Good evening and a belated Happy New Year to all BMer's - hope everyone is safe and well After being totally distracted with Christmas and everything that's going on in the world at the moment I've finally managed to get back to the bench to try and get my head down and get some modelling done. I was conscious that I still need to get cracking with my Wellington build as well as my I-16 - hopefully make some progress with these and update you all very soon. As we're now starting another year afresh, I thought I'd take the opportunity to take stock of what I have on the go and what I really should get finished. I have 8 kits in total that are at various stages of completion as well as more coming in to the stash as we speak (kit buying should be a registered condition I'm sure)!!!! What caught my eye was a tiny red shape towards the back of the shelf and I remembered I'd completed the Airfix 1/72 Tiger Moth ages ago - well, until it was about 95% complete and then forgot about it. So I thought in the New Year spirit this should be the first kit to be freed from the shelf of doom. All that was required was a couple of little jobs like sorting out the canopy screens, tidying up the struts and then giving it a flat coat with a tiny bit of weathering. I did deliberate quite a bit about whether or not to try and add some rigging but the kit is so small and delicate that I felt I'd probably end up ruining the effect altogether with blobs of super glue trying to hold tiny threads in place - so no rigging it is. So here she is - now resting comfortably in my cabinet - on the other side of the room from the shelf of doom!! Hope you like Kris

  12. Hi, For my next build I was wondering, what I should build. I eventually decided on a tiger moth. What are some good kits in 1:48th and 1:72 scale for the tiger moth?
  13. Hello all, Just finished the rather diminutive, but exquisite 1/72 Airfix Tiger Moth. I was very impressed with the kit! I added the Eduard PE set (which costs twice the price of the kit...). Decals from Xtradecal. Thanks for looking Guy
  14. Hello BM'ers! I am involved in a small group named the Edenvale Classic Aircraft Foundation http://www.classicaircraft.ca/ in Stayner (north of Toronto) Ontario Canada. We are a small museum based at an ex- BCATP field and we have two 1943 trainers that we use to give the public "Experience flights". They are a Fleet PT-26 Cornell and a DH98a Tiger Moth. Our Cornell is in great shape and we are busy giving rides, however, our Tiger Moth was damaged in a accident in 2017 and is still under repair. Although we are going through insurance to repair the aircraft, there is a large gap in what they are paying and what is required to get everything back to top condition. Once you open an 85 year old wing and fuselage to fix it you inevitably find more work to be done replacing worn or just too old components. As a result we are finding ourselves in a position between not getting our Tiger back into the air at all or running our small not for profit organisation into debt. We are running fund raising activities locally and we are also looking to the world wide aviation community to see if anyone out there would like to help. We have started a Gofundme campaign and I would like to present it here and I ask that you consider the request and/or spread the word to others who you may feel are interested. And if any of you are visiting in the Toronto / Georgian Bay area anytime please contact us or me and perhaps come visit. You may even consider a flight over some of the best scenery in Ontario. Thank you!! https://www.gofundme.com/restore-a-1943-dehavilland-tiger-moth-to-flight
  15. Hello, I am keen on building this particular machine - a Tiger Moth coded K-4288 /D of 18th Elementary and Reserve FTS, Fairoaks, Surrey, England 1937. I intend to use Xtradecal set No. X72190, and the instructions suggest a very interesting scheme - silver fuselage + wings in "shadow" camouflage + yellow wingtips and undersides! Img source: Hyperscale This looks very interesting, indeed, but looking at the two photos if this machine known to me, I have some doubts about the wing camouflage and yellow wingtips. Would anyone please also take a look at the photos, and contribute with his opinion? 20 eyes are always better than just two Img source: Aerohispanoblog Img source: Krul antiquarian books Thank You in advance!
  16. As promised in the What's Flying Over Your House thread, here's the first lot of photos taken at this year's fly-in. These are the pics taken with the zoom lens on my DSLR. The standard lens recently broke, so I had to use my wife's awful Fuji camera to take the close-up pics, and I haven't managed to get the pics off the SD card as yet! Tiger Moths first! Cheers, Mark.
  17. Airfix Tiger Moth in 1/72 in the kit scheme colours of No. 10 Elementary Reserve Flying School, RAF Yatesbury, Wiltshire 1940. Built oob except for scratch built seatbelts (from heavy duty kitchen foil), Albion Alloys 0.3mm brass tube (for the control horns in the tail) and Uschi van der Rosten Fine (0.02mm line). Paints were airbrushed Italeri RAF Dark Earth and Dark Green along with Humbrol yellow (I think it was 69 - colder compared to RAF Training Yellow) and Mig pigments and washes. I built this as I wanted to learn how to do rigging which was initially quite frustrating. I had many battles with medium and thin superglue and kicker just to get the lines to stay...so the surfaces around the struts became quite a mess in the end (along with the fuselage where it meets the wing). Despite my drilling out the lower wings and attaching the rigging lines to the upper wing with the intention of feeding the line through the lower wings, I only managed to do this for a couple, the rest were bodged in a pool of superglue. However, overall I'm pleased with the result even if the rigging is overscale and the rigging in front of the cockpit subsequently came undone.
  18. Source: http://www.specialhobby.net/2016/08/hadanka-aneb-co-to-pripravujeme.html Parts of an aircraft preserved or photographed by SH representatives at the (now closed) Virginia Air Museum - http://www.aviationmuseum.eu/World/North_America/USA/Virginia/Richmond/Virginia_Aviation_Museum.htm - and already announced for years as future kit in the Special Hobby catalog. To be followed. V.P.
  19. Here's my latest completion, Airfix's new-tool Tiger Moth in RAAF colours. Paints are Humbrol throughout, H149 being used to represent Foliage green, the markings are from Xtradecals and represent an aircraft from No. 12 Local Air Supply Unit RAAF, Cape Wom, Wewak, New Guinea in 1945. On September 14, 1945 the commander of the Japanese 18th Army, Lt. General Hatazo Adachi was transported as a passenger in the forward cockpit of this aircraft. Piloted by Flying Officer T. L. Collier, it took off from Cape Wom airfield and was flown south to Kiarivu airfield where Adachi returned to his headquarters nearby. http://www.pacificwrecks.com/aircraft/dh82/A17-489.html I rather liked this kit, but I did end up braking the wing struts when I came to remove the "X" brace between them. This was intended as a quick build, so I didn't bother rigging or weathering it. Finally, here's a sneak peak of one of my current projects : As always, comments and criticism welcome! Mike.
  20. After several rainy days in a row, the sun thankfully put in an appearance for today's event at The Shuttleworth Collection: The Gathering Of Moths. This is a free event and well worth coming to if vintage aeroplanes are your thing. I took a few pictures while I was there. Ok, I tell a lie: I took over 700 pictures while I was there! The lighting conditions were constantly changing, and proved to be a bit of a challenge at times. Anyway, I have opened a temporary account at Flickr (I can't stand Flickr, but it'll do until I find something better) to host a small selection of the photos. Here's a few of them: (Well, that was an effort! I see that Flickr is just as "user friendly" as it was ten years ago!) The Paddock was opened to the great unwashed for ninety minutes, which I think is mainly a brilliant idea. Mainly, because it's bloomin' difficult to get a good pic while the world and his wife are blissfully unaware of everyone and everything around them, displaying all the situational awareness of a bat wearing ear muffs. My patience was tried many times today, but it was well worth it in the end and I have to thank the Collection for the opportunity to get close to so many lovely, old aeroplanes. Once I have found a suitable replacement for P****bucket, I will gradually get round to re-uploading all my old pictures, plus all the new ones I've taken since, which is probably around a thousand! I'm thinking about giving Smugmug a go, as they seem to offer exactly what I'm after. I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has experience of it, or thoughts on alternatives. I tried Village Photos, but it was just awful. Nothing worked properly and it took over a month for support to get back to me! That's deleted now. Cheers, Mark.
  21. Hi, This is my recent model, not from archive I finished it few days ago. This is Dh 82 Tiger Moth of Air Abulance Unit in Australia Laverton at end of 1944 (A17-543). Profile from Czech book "Ilustrovana Historie Letectvi " (Illustrated history of aviation) No 8, Z. Hurt, P.Kucera, O.Charles, 1992 via wing palette. The conversion is acratch built, decals from drawer. I hope you will like it, Comments welcome! Regards Jerzy-Wojtek P.S. I am about to finish another Tiger Moth in RAF markings - soon I hope at RFI.
  22. Well, this morning I shot some spray-can green on the interior bits of my Tiger Moth, so I guess that means that it is officially started. In my wildest fantasies (err, make that relatively tame fantasies...) I'd like to be done by April 2, which is when the next "local" contest is. For normal people that would be simple, but I seldom claim to be normal. My plan is to do a representative civil-paint example- I'll consult the rules to see how faithful I have to be. I'm also aiming to stick as close to "Straight out of the Box" as I can manage, BUT this'll also be my first attempt at rigging a model. I'm anticipating conducting pretty much the whole build through my magnifying desk lamp! To prove that I didn't cheat: bob
  23. Extras used: Kora Tiger Moth in Spanish service decals and resin wheels, Uschi super fine rigging thread Paints and colours used: Mr hobby Aluminium metalizer What a great little kit, this one marks the start of a little project of mine to have a go at some Spanish civil war subjects. It's a very interesting period (this one is depicted before the hostilities) and the amount of possible aircraft is huge. I found a great website which lists all the aircraft and info etc: http://bioold.science.ku.dk/drnash/model/spain/did.html Anyway onto the pictures, a guy at my local club took these for me, I must say it looks better in pics than in real life! DH. 82a Tiger Moth, Spanish Republican Airforce 1935 Thanks Jason
  24. Hi Everyone, I managed to slowly make my way through 3 kits this year, with the same number still sitting on the bench. All Australian Fleet Air Arm in 1/72 scale as part of my long-term RAN FAA build theme. First up was the wonderful little Airfix Tiger Moth from HMAS Albatross in the mid 50's. This was my first biplane and it won't be my last. I really like doing the rigging. Decals are from Southen Sky. Then another Airfix, this time the RAN's fist jet trainer, a T.22 Vampire also stationed at Albatross (NW) tail code, in the mid-late 60's. Mostly out of the box with some Pavla Martin Bakers added and excellent Xtradecal decals. And lastly, my first ever completed group build, a UH-1B Iroquois N9-882 (857) which served with 723 Squadron from 1964 to 1989. This one has fair bit of Eduard etch added and a largely scratch-built cabin. That's all for this year. Hopefully next year will see 4 or more! Andrew
  25. Anyone got any suggestions for the yellow used by the London Flying Club? Cambridge Flying Club still use the scheme on their Tiger Moths G-AHIZ & G-AOEI. Due to working shifts, reduced daylight hours and the aircraft being kept in the hanger more at this time of year I'm a bit stuck for a chance to pop over and compare iModelKit against the real thing!
