I'll be watching this one. Quite a few modifications/corrections already.

The paints on the heli is not yet hardened and we see colored parts on the next project. Full steam as always
Do you not separate the control surfaces?
31. August, 19:16
Bernhard Schrock
Indeed full steam thanks "red Superzündi" :). Control surfaces: I discovered an excellent walkaround and I'm stunned to see that the fins and elevators were covered with ONE / common !! piece of fabric. The same situation on the wings and ruder. Because of that I decided to leave the control surfaces on the rest. https://largescaleplanes.com/walkaround/wk.php?wid=157

Definitely not a Tomcat ;) But a lovely hi-viz pattern - will check IN & follow!

I see the upgrades & engineering solutions have already started gathering around the build!

Nice project and it looks like it's progressing very fast!

Nice work! Do you plan to use all the new Eduard PE sets? Brassin wheels are also released. The Airfix rigging PE set seems to be also very realistic due to the flat bars.

Moin bughunter, Danke für die Tipps. Hab's beim Research gesehen, dass es ein Riging Set von SBS Models gibt. Meinst du dieses oder gibt es von Airfix ein anderes? Da das Ding von SBS nicht zu kriegen ist, wollte ich mein eigens kreiertes Uni Set verwenden. So wie bei Boeing Stearman...
Räder ausm Bausatz finde ich nicht schlecht bzw. wollte sie verwenden wohl auch aus Faulheit da ich keine Bestellung aufsetzen will mit Versandkosten gleich Warenwert :). Heute eben rot geairbrusht. Aus H19 und H174 genau den Ton der Decals getroffen.

Ja, das SBS set meinte ich. HLJ hat es ;) Aber wenn Dein Set auch passt, ist es ja gut.
6. September, 16:26
Bernhard Schrock
Danke. HLJ... weit weg, Versand kostet Vermögen und es wäre ein Reimport... :).
6. September, 16:30
René "Bilbo" Bartholemy
Verdammt... Erst mußte ich "SBS" suchen, dann noch mal HLJ um euch überhaupt zu verstehen! Könnt ihr zwei auch Deutsch? ;)
Jetzt ohne Witz, danke daß ihr mich auf SBS gebracht habt. Die Marke kannte ich noch nicht, aber die haben einige interessante Sachen auf Lager.

Hier bei Scalemates ist alles nicht weit weg ...
1. Click auf die Airfix-Schachtel unterm Projekt, zum Zubehör scrollen - da erscheint das SBS model set
2. Click auf das SBS set Bild - auf der neuen Seite zu den Shops scrollen
3. Click und Du bist bei HLJ
Zu nicht Corona-Zeiten habe ich da für das Small Paket meist 6 bis 7€ bezahlt, das ist ok.
7. September, 17:31
René "Bilbo" Bartholemy
Stimmt! Meine Lösung war nicht so einfach... :)

Ich werde mich hier mal niederlassen und versuchen zu lernen und was mitzunehmen für den Wold Cruiser, was Verspannung und Ösen etc angeht.
7. September, 18:32
Bernhard Schrock
Hi Daniel. Willkommen. Allerdings beachte bitte, dass die Tiger Moth zu der Generation der Doppeldecker aus den 30gern gehört, die nicht Seile sondern flache Stahlprofile als Verspannung hatten. Vielleicht hilft es dir wenn du bei meinem Artikel/Galerie über den DWC reinschaust.

Moin zur Info, auf der Homepage von SBS ist das Set in 1/48 verfügbar für die DH-82 und ich habe es bestellt.
Gruß

Daniel Klink
Ah jetzt ja.
Hui da liegt die Latte aber mega hoch.... Du hast ja auch bei der Douglas an jede Öse gedacht
7. September, 19:11
Lochsa_River
personally...i make it a point NEVER to build something Bernhard has done....it would only depress me...how can anyone be that good?

The Douglas plane is in the stash but that's it....

watching, I love tiger moths. moin moin.

Hanno Kleinecke
What a beautiful red ! Your windscreens are a vast improvement compared to the kitparts

I am trying to figure out exactly how you did the windshield.

Clear acetate was cut and hinged and then an imprinted frame put on it?
12. September, 17:46
Bernhard Schrock
Lochsa_River: Pvc about 0,3 mm thick. Self adhesive aluminum foil strips. See last pictures.

Great idea with the frame on the windshield I always like your selection of colors. This biplane is no exception!
12. September, 18:34
Thomas Espe
Watching this for sure.

Tom Beighley
Super nice build!

Erik Leijdens
Fantastic work on this Tiger Moth Bernard. Much save your build as a benchmark
15. September, 07:23
Slavo Hazucha
Excellent job on the windshields... And all the rest too - amazing how you manage to add so much scratch material and keep the whole thing so clean...
15. September, 16:00
Andy Ball
Eye-watering-ly and masterly!

Bernhard Schrock
Your comments are very appreciate! Slavo: it's no magic but Instagram filter 27A (for biplanes-WIP pictures) :)

What, already done?
Again a very impressive model of your workbench
20. September, 18:06
Daniel Klink
Einfach nur wunderschön anzusehen
20. September, 18:07
Hanno Kleinecke
No mothballs needed for this moth, on the contrary ! What a beautiful insect this is. Is the pe for rigging your homemade stuff or kitparts ?
Steering rods look very authentic !
20. September, 18:57
Bernhard Schrock
Thank you bughunter, Daniel and Hanno. I'm glad that you like my Tiger Moth. The PE - parts are from self created rigging sheet (Neusilber). I used 0,3 mm wide strips.
20. September, 19:12
Lochsa_River
Outstanding....a real joy to look at and the details are wonderful.
20. September, 19:26
Spanjaard
simply excellent.wow.

Slavo Hazucha
Beautiful job and a super-inspiring display how far one can go with the Airfix kit... Really captures the "simple & calm beauty of flight" message the Tiger Moth communicates every time I see a picture or video of it.

May not have the complexity of exposed helo rotors & interiors, but you cut it so precise it calls out of the photos just like the real plane. Top notch & beautiful subject!
20. September, 21:13
Alex K
Awesome...
20. September, 23:21
René "Bilbo" Bartholemy
Next to all that has been said, there's another thing that I absolutely adore: no weathering. The plane looks brand new and that's somehow making it even more impressive.
Add any number of superlatives here... :)

You were too fast with the build - in the newsletter of Special Hobby was now a lot of nice accessories ;)
22. September, 16:33

Wonderful!!

Lots of fun deatils. :)
