A-Model have released a trio of de Havilland Moths. Here's a look at the Gipsy-engined D.H.60G.

I dislike complaining about any 48th scale kit, but I just have one question to ask Amodels, .......... why???
I'm sure it;s a nice kit and those 1 or 200 modelers will really be glad you made it. Hope Amodels has deeeeeep pockets!!

I've ordered all three! I think it might be an English thing, the Dehavilland Moths are as important here as the Stearman would be in the States. I imagine that anyone who's had a trip to Old Warden would be unable to resist.

Hi Bo

Well, Amodel did a Spruce Goose in 72 scale ... does that answer your question ....

I am happy about any 48 scale release ... and no I will not buy that Moth

cheers

looks good to me, I will buy one.the struts are not canted at all so that appeals to me as being an easier build.
