  1. This is my very first WIP. Decided on an OOB (with the exception of a set of 'Yahu' instruments) Airfix DE Havilland DH.82a Tiger Moth. I have plenty to learn, and a long way to go with my modelling skills but I'm sure ill improve as I go along, Now to this Kit. As you can see from the photos ive made a start. The cockpit is fairly basic (not as basic as revell 1/72 FW 190 ive just built which had a simple rectangular hole as a cockpit) with two seats two sticks, ill add some masking tape seat belts at a later stage. I was surprised to find that a certain amount of Surgery was needed on the fuselage half's, if you want the doors open it is necessary to cut and remove the molded in doors and also drill holes for attaching the alternative parts, this I found annoying as I would have thought it better to have molded open doors and then have alternative doors to fit closed if required, I wonder why Airfix went the route they did, I'm guessing tooling was cheaper? removing a good portion of the rear fuselage is also required at this stage, this is in order to fit the Anti-roll strake's fitted to this model, again why not do it the other way round? Whilst on the subject of cutting the doors out, I found it better to remove the rear doors in two pieces rather than try cut around an angle (see photos) I am a very ham fisted modeler! and rely a lot on filler, however due to the textured finish of the external surfaces of this model I'm having to take extra care. Now i have to go build up a Fiat Twin cam Cylinder head so more on the Tiger tomorrow. Steve
  2. So far this is only a place holder...I think I'll start it next week. Here are three other designs on the back of the box but I think I'll stick with the silver dope and dayglo orange. These are the other choices. Good looks all, but not the best of the four. --John
