Airfix has released a number of new photos showing their upcoming new tool de Havilland D.H.82a Tiger Moth in 1/48 scale.

The kit (A04104) was developed to be “as accurate as possible,” utilizing original research data and engineering drawings as well as information gathered from an airworthy Tiger Moth at Headcorn Aerodrome. It will also incorporate a “clever design feature” for builders looking to acheive maximum detail:

The wing internals have tiny and rather discrete indentations which serve as a guide to the placement of rigging holes, should you decide to go for total authenticity with your build, holes which are not visible if you elect not to rig the model.

The new model will reportedly include to livery options representing K-2585/G-ANKT (formerly T6818), owned and operated by The Shuttleworth Collection and K-4259/G-ANMO, based at Headcorn Aerodrome. The new kit is currently available for pre-order and is expected to be released this spring. Click below to check out additional photos.
