Airfix 1/48 Tiger Moth


Recommended Posts

The newish Airfix Tiger Moth in 1/48 scale. Another nice little kit with no real problems in build. Built and finished out of the box. As always self-inflicted build issues around the top wing which I left off unitl near the end, after applying decals and partial rigging. Matching the red was a challenge as the red I used was slightly different to the kit decals, which I have to say were excellent.

Thanks for the  kind comments folks. For rigging I used elastic thread and the tiniest blob of superglue. Airfix provide a very useful series of diagrams showing the rigging set up. I also partially rigged it before attempting to put the top wing in place.
