Many of the brave "Few" who flew Spitfires and Hurricanes to victory in the Battle of Britain began their journey into the history books at the controls of a DeHavilland Tiger Moth. As the RAF's primary trainer, the Tiger Moth inspired the confidence of fledgling pilots with its exceptionally forgiving flight characteristics. Yet, when the time came to learn aerobatics and formation flight, it could be demanding enough to instill in all its pupils a healthy respect for proper stick and rudder control.
Hangar 9 has brilliantly captured the spirit of the Tiger Moth with this outstanding, giant-scale recreation. Along with a near perfect scale outline, it employs the use of the same under cambered airfoil that made the full-scale version such a joy to fly at slower speeds. Other scale touches include wire rigging, an accurately modeled undercarriage, instrument panel details and much more.
It truly is a giant-scale experience unlike any other; one that will appeal to Sunday afternoon sport fliers and scale aficianados alike.
