What are some good 1:48 or 1:72 De Havilland Tiger Moth

Recommended Posts

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?

In 1/72 scale the new tool Airfix Tiger Moth is a real beauty and if you buy the Series 2 box is also comes with RAAF decals as well. 

Airfix are also planning to do a Tiggie in 1/48 scale, however this has now been pushed out to December this year - perhaps save this larger one for Christmas. 

 

Cheers.. Dave

Hi Dave, I was initially inspired to do a tiger moth from when i visited the one a temora aviation museum. i really would like to do an raaf version, so thanks for the response.

Avoid the old Airfix 1/72 kit, which can be found in all these packages

This is the good Airfix 1/72 kit, dating from 2014

Also avoid the SMER / Merit / Aurora 1/48 kits.

 

If you can find one (it's long out of production) the Aeroclub one is in 1/48 is very good but out of production. But you might find one in somewhere

The forthcoming Airfix 1/48 kit will probably be fine, when it comes out.
