  1. de Havilland DH.82A Tiger Moth (32035) 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 pis

Possible incoming announcement of a large scale Tiger Moth?
  3. 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 th

  8. 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?
  9. 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
  10. 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 i
  11. 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 a
  12. 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.
  13. 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

  15. 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 returne
  16. 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. H
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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 cod
  21. 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!

  23. De Havilland Tiger Moth Airfix 1:72 These are the re-tooled Airfix kit. It is a huge improvement over the original kit from the 1950s. The plastic is brittle though, and the struts easily broken. Not one of my four have the kit supplied tail skid, they all broke off during construction and were replaced with brass wire. But don't be put off, it is a lovely little kit for the more experienced modeller. Oh, and the control horns on the tail are not on the lower surfaces, so I made my own. Rigging is with invisible mending thread, Decals on ZK-BFH and G-ADJJ from Hannants Xtrdecal sheet 7
  24. Hi Everyone, I might have missed the cut for the Tiger Moth Group Build, but I did finally finish this really nice little kit. Markings are for the Royal Australian Navy Naval Air Station at Nowra in the mid-1950's. Decals are from Southern Sky models and the kit is of course the new-ish Airfix 1/72. I had my usual bumps and scrapes in the build process but I enjoyed it very much, especially my first attempt at biplane rigging which was done with invisible thread and superglue. (I gave up attempting the elevator rigging!) For the photographically-minded, it was my first attempt at using the
  25. Good Day All, i'm calling this "done" Started this project back in March and took my time at it but now she's finally complete. The DH.82c Tiger as she may have appeared in 1942 after rolling off the production line at DeHavilland Canada in Downsview (now part of Toronto) Ontario, Canada. She stayed in Canada her whole life (including some 25 years in storage) and is currently flying with/at The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton, Ontario Canada. Here's what was done to get it as close as I could to a DH.82c: Canopy (vac formed), prop (metal), and engine (metal) are via Jo
