Manufacturer: Avi Models

Subject: D.H.83 Fox Moth

Scale: 1/72

Paints Used: Tamiya XF83, XF24, XF85, MRP white, Mr Color 8

Details: Uschi Super Fine Rigging Thread, Albion Alloys 0.5 Tubing, Custom Masks.

 

This is a new release of the D.H.83 Fox Moth and it is a typical short run kit. It was tricky in places but most of the issues came from me rushing the build a little, I messed up the decals on one side so had to cut a mask to fix that, I’ve filmed this build for my channel on YouTube so that is why there is a lack on in progress shots.

 

I have depicted the aircraft as photographed during the Spanish Civil War and in use by the Nationalists, this aircraft was on the Republican side initially but after capture it was repainted as is seen, I had to modify a few things, most notably blanking off the exhaust outlet and putting in a few bits of meta tubing to simulate the modified exhaust of the actual aircraft.

Very nice model- cute little Moth in  a warlike finish! Was it a pretty good kit to build, especially being soooo small? 👍
