Airfix 1/48 Tiger Moth finished

Well after the self inflicted problems I had the model is finally finished. That was a very enjoyable build and a really good kit. Some aspects have been simplified such as the cockpit, the rudder control bar that protrudes through the cockpit sides etc but it really is a good base for extra detailing.
I chose a different scheme to that provided in the kit and the models represents Tiger Moth 85873 ‘T-2’ of Belgisch Militaire Vliegwezen/Aviation Militaire Belge based at Goetsenhoven, Belgium during the 1950’s. Decals came from a Hannants Xtradecals sheet X48207 de Havilland Tiger Moth Pt3 Overseas Operators.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
