De Havilland Tiger Moth, 1/72, Airfix

Well, this is an special kit for me.
Last year, when I just entered in this group, I suddenly won the ‘Random Award’ with my little Junker’s D-1. the Beginner’s luck!
It was so hard select a prize kit and I selected big boy, Airfix’s new tool 1/72 DC-3. Martin sent me this with international shipment from UK to South Korea. But for my fault it went to back to UK and Martin helps me a lot to fix this thing alright.

Finally I got my DC-3 which flied all over the planet but wait, there was more..!
Martin kindly put this 1/72 DH Tiger moth in addition even this delaying was my fault. I really appreciate to imodeler and here put my complete model of this small surprising gift!

I usually paint free custom scheme for the kit I received for gift. this time I wrap it with my own made decal printed with office laser print. the paisley pattern is my favorite. and I added some nose art girl decals from my unused decal stash.
I really enjoyed this built. I wish I have a Tiger Moth too in my garage. maybe, one day.

So big DC-3 Dakota is still left for me. I think I’ll make it with custom paint scheme to.

  1. Beautiful work…! More so in 72nd scale – excellent job!

  2. Hongseob, The one thing I enjoy on imodeler is getting a chance to not only see a long list of nice builds, but to also see the creativity exhibited by my fellow model builders. This is a good example of that. I have to admit this is not a scheme I would have ever dreamed of (even if I were on drugs in the 1960s), but its well done, and very attractive !

  3. Now that is an awesome model. What a great job u did and in such a small scale. So creative and unique, stunning. Love to see unique subjects and different takes on a subject.

  4. Wow – what an eye-catcher! Though it’s easy to get distracted by that wild scheme, you can tell the build is done to excellent standards. Very nice.

  5. Great scheme! Like the registration, too.

  6. Took looking twice to get past the amazing scheme and see all the amazing construction.

  7. Wonderful!
    After looking so many war models and fighter planes it was a nice shock to see hippy plane :).
    Maybe I use your idea on some model, thank you.
