THIS KIT IS A REISSUE OF A PREVIOUS ECARDMODELS.COM LISTING
Tiger Moths found their use in pilot training in South America, and the Brazilian Navy Air Corps operated them in the 1940’s. The Trainer here, 2-I-10, is preserved in Museu Aeroespacial no Campo dos Afonsos (Air and Space Museum at Campo dos Afonsos, Rio de Janeiro). Although it belongs to the Aeronautica (Air Force), the planes are preserved in colors of the Avia Naval (Navy Air Corps). With flat sided cowling distinguishing it as different from the more familiar Tiger nose. An attractive, sharp-looking model. If you enjoy building this paper model, please contribute a review!
