AVI DH.80A Pussmoth : Southland Airways (NZ)


Recommended Posts

I've built the simple but visually appealing  AVI DH Puss moth kit. With a bit of research and a couple of paintings in a book "Flying By Bradshaw"  I was able to reproduce Southland Airways Puss Moth ZK-ACX  from New Zealand in 1930s. Apparently the original is under a slow-rebuild to airworthiness at Manderville Aerodrome near Gore in Southland, NZ 

My only complaint about the build would be that the multi-piece cockpit glazing is prone to pipette effects and paint bleeds...It was a close call at one stage whether the model was going to be junked!

The colour scheme is really attractive. Good thing you overcame the problems and didn’t junk this one.

 

Best,
