De Havilland’s diminutive D.H.82 Tiger Moth has remained a fixture in global aviation circles for over 80 years.
The little biplane has worn an astonishing array of military and civilian schemes. And examples still ply the skies.
Now it enjoys spectacular color coverage in de Havilland D.H.82 Tiger Moth – No.101 in the Guideline Publications’ perennially popular Warpaint Series.
Format follows the publisher’s proven prescription. After illuminating notes on design, development and testing, text traverses production and worldwide service in dozens of countries.
Seven pages of outstanding Richard Caruana color plates illustrate at least 45 individual schemes. Tables, 1:48 plans, extended captions, and dozens of B&W and color photos – including detail shots – season this superb little study. And a list of available model kits and accessories nicely concludes contents.
Once again, Warpaint’s handy handbook has it all!
My sincere thanks to Guideline Publications for this review sample!
