The de Havilland Tiger Moth must rank amongst the most well-known aircraft of all time, with 8, 868 built in the UK and abroad, serving with around 40 air arms worldwide and training thousands of pilots from the 1930s throughout WW2 to the early 1970s, when the last of the Fleet Air Arm Tiger Moths was retired. Even today, in civilian hands, some 250 are still flying around the world and are still seen in numbers at air shows in the UK and abroad. Now with the recent release of good plastic kits in all the popular scales and numerous after-market decal sheets, it is timely that this comprehensive Tiger Moth book is brought to you as an invaluable reference for your shelves. Author Adrian Balch takes you through the type’s history, with notes on each air arm’s operations, and over 90 rare, top quality colour photos illustrate some of the many colourful schemes, both military and civil. Also there are detailed close-ups of the salient features and various modifications made to the type. Renowned artist Richard Caruana enhances the book with more of his superb authentic colourful profiles, making this a ‘must have’ book for the modeller, whether your interest is civil or military.
