Airfix 1/48 Tiger Moth
This is my build of the Shuttleworth Tiger Moth from Airfix’s 1/48 kit. It’s a nice kit and well engineered, there’s even an included jig for adapting the tail for the two different versions featured in the kit as one has the anti-spin strakes and the other doesn’t. I used the Eduard PE kit for extra detail and rigging and the control cables are elastic thread. There are decals for the checkered patterning on the wings but I decided to try and paint them instead, apart from some colour bleed through the roundels I think they worked out OK.
