DH.82A Tiger Moth - G-ACDC (1/32, ICM)
« on: September 19, 2021, 12:32:14 AM »
Here is my current project. I am planning to build one of the oldest flying DH82As, G-ACDC, in its burgund red livery.




The work on cockpit is over. I have used Eduard PE sets, and also added some linkages and missing handles for fuel valve.

Very nice, Przemo! I'm going to enjoy this build! There is definitely one in my future too! Regards, Marc.

Very good start.  Reminds me very much of the Bucker Bu 131 I built.

Thank you Marc and Kensar.

Now the focus is on Gipsy Major engine. I plan to open the carburettor side panel to show the detail, so some missing items have to be added - oil, fuel and electric installations especially. The other side will be closed but still some details will be seen through the front opening in the cowling. The bits are ready for airbrush.







I have also repainted the compasses into grey and corrected the anchor points for rear cockpit lap seatbelts.

Nice detail work.  Those seatbelts look great.

Thank you, kensar. The belts are prepainted PE from Eduard, very much recommended.

And in the recent days I have finished working on Gipsy Major engine. The carb side will be open, the oil tank side - closed.

Good work!
I wonder if I might have flown in that plane once?! It was red and said to be the oldest flying Tiger Moth at the time... Good choice anyway!

Thanks, Fredrik.
Well, it is quite possible, I have heard this one is the oldest DH82a still flying :-) And it changed livery many times, being more fire-brigade-red too, as depicted in the new Airfix 72nd scale kit.

Thank you, Alexis and Bob.

And here is more. The body is done. So are the doors and the engine panel made from the connection of thinned kit parts and PE bits. The exhaust painted and ready to be attached. The control horns are from Ed PE, except for the aileron ones which are made far too flat. Also the fittings for the upper elevator cable and the completely neglected very evident connections between the lower wing and the fuselage - these from scratch.
