Next project in the pipeline is this old 'kite' De Havilland DH 82 'Tiger Moth'

This time I'm going to build one of the danish training planes, from the end of the thirties...

Hopefully, a little relaxing build to get back to basics again...

Stoppel Hobby of Denmark has done the 1/32 scale decals, so I don't have to customise this time...

I'm trying to reuse some of the techniques used in the S.e.5a builds, while I have them fresh in my memory...

The seatbelts are PE from the spares box...

A little extra details are added, handles and a couple of wires...

The luggage compartment is opened and the compass has been scratched to add some detail to the cockpits...

The front seat has been rebuild...

A freat start and if allowed I would like to suggest you look at my website,  www.barneysairforce.com and the construction article, "Tiger by the Tail, for the correct linkages on the throttle and trim.  The photos show how straight from the old maintenance manual.

Nice work,  Not the most detailed kit but a great little kit. One I really enjoy building.  I have another one that will get done up someday too!

Taking a seat :popcorn:

Looking at the decal sheet, I'd be soooo tempted by the float version ...
(But, hey, I have this one in the stash :hmmm: any link to the source of the decal sheet - being plain lazy here ;) ? )

Is the box the same size as their larger 1/32 scale kits? 

 

Great start!

Great stuff Kent, glad to see your corrections to the front seat. Two other areas that need to be addressed; the lower fuselage underneath the cockpit (see my pictures in LSP Walkarounds section) and lower wing dihedral which is too flat in the kit.

Cracking scheme - Are you sticking with the wheels or temped by the ski’s or floats?
