The DH 82 Tiger Moth bi-plane, designed by Geoffrey de Havilland, took to the skies in 1931 and operated chiefly by the RAF, lasted in service into the early 1950s. Oxford's 1:72 scale replica comes with a tooling modification to include floats for landing on water. It is this version that we have chosen for our latest release as flown by the Royal Navy.
Decorated in a marine camouflage of mid and dark grey with pale blue underwings, Oxford's model is numbered T7187, which appears in black on both the wings and the fuselage, together with the RAF roundel. The floats and float struts are finished in silver. The open cockpit is moulded in muted green and other finite details include black propeller blades and spinner tips as well as black tyres, wing walkways, exhaust pipes and tail skid.
