  1. This must be an awesome set of Tiger Moths, Santiago @diamant01
    Maybe something went wrong with the upload of the pictures because there are none.
    Can you give it another try because I definitely would like to see them.

  2. Another absolutely awesome collection, Hrubisco Family!
    Congratulations!

  3. Impressive collection and all well done! Congrats...

  4. This is both amazing and insane...imagine all the rigging...

  5. What a great collection of models, Santiago (@diamant01). I can't imagine gathering all of the information needed to build these models, as well as building and rigging them. Then there are all the markings to create. Well done.

    • Thank George. Yes, to be honest, the research use to take more time than the time need to my father to make the models.

      We do not build a model if we do not have at least one photo of the real aircraft.

      Cheers
      Santiago

  6. WOW...that's a lotta Moths. Awesome job. Admire your commitment to meeting your objective. It's a remarkable achievement.

  7. Yikes - rigging that many bipes would have flushed my modeling mojo down the toilet! A great collection - well done!

  8. Now that’s a swarm of moths! Nice work.

  9. Ahoy Santiago,
    If I built only one Tiger Moth at this level, I would congratulate myself on a job well done. I can't imagine building 51, but the proof is right here. This is an marvelous project and is nearly beyond my comprehension. Santiago, you and your father are a true modelers and what you have accomplished is extraordinary.

    • Hi Thomas.
      Thank you very much. We do like this approach to the hobby.

      For us if you see all the differents versions of schemes, markings, etc is very enjoyable.

      Cheers
      Santiago

  10. Well done Dad And Santiago, a lovely collection of Tiger Moths, good to see a few Aussie subjects included, I need to build one or two of mine !
