Airfix 1/48 scale
De Havilland Tiger Moth

Hobby Boss' 1/32 Spitfire Mk.Vb Trop is available online from Squadron
Here is my brand new Airfix 1/48 scale Tiger Moth.
This one is straight from the box build wise but I've incorporated a set of the new SBS rigging wires which I think are a must and very easy to use providing you pre drill all the acceptance holes (which are actually very finely marked on the model anyway).
The modification to the kit to allow for fitting of the tailplane with the fuselage anti spin strakes is made so easy with the addition of the plastic jig included.
The fuselage control wires are Aeroclub thread and a set of seatbelts from Eduard. I see Eduard now also do appropriate belts within their new dedicated set for the Tiger Moth.
I look forward to building another couple at least. One of which will be using the blind flying hood which is also included.
I assume there will also be a release to incorporate an aircraft without the anti-spin strakes because of the extra tailplane assembly?
