Here is the last of a trio from Xtradecal sheets for the new Airfix 1/48 scale Tiger Moth.



It is pleasing to see that the kit is selling well as the first batch quickly sold out and a resupply is still topping the best sellers list on Hannant’s web site.



Five lovely military Tiger Moths for those with a good supply of Trainer Yellow paint for the popular Airfix 1:48 kit.

  • DH82A T7189/’L1A’ with the No. 780 Naval Air Squadron, Royal Navy 1943. This is an attractive Tiger Moth with a camouflage pattern of Dark Green and Dark Earth on the upper surfaces with Trainer Yellow undersides.

  • DH82A A17-56/’56’ with No. 6 Elementary Flying Training School, Royal Australian Air Force at RAAF Mallala, South Australia in 1940. The finish is overall Trainer Yellow.

  • DH82A A-17-347/’347’ with No. 10 Elementary Flying Training School, Royal Australian Air Force at RAAF Temora, NSW in 1940. Most of the upper fuselage and wings are painted with a pattern of Earth Brown and Foliage Green with a Trainer Yellow rudder, wide fuselage and upper wing bands. Trainer Yellow was applied to the undersides of the wings.

  • DH82A NZ882 ‘AI’ with the No. 3 Elementary Flying Training School, Royal New Zealand Air Force at RNZAF Harewood, NZ in 1940. Overall Trainer Yellow applies to this Tiger Moth.

  • DH82A ‘524’ with the No. 4 Air School of the South African Air Force when based at Benoni, South Africa, June 1945. Again, this Tiger Moth was in overall Trainer Yellow.

The decals for each scheme are separated on the decal sheet by a broken line and all have a set of national markings so all five can be produced should you wish to do so.
