    I am currently looking for documentation or photographs that clearly show the interface between the rear fuselage structure and the front fuselage structure. Photographs taken during a restoration project may be particularly helpful.

    I have drawings, but the dimensions relating the 2 assemblies are completely illegible.

    All help would be gratefully appreciated.

    Thanking you in advance.

    What scale are you working? I've made my own guesstimates from available photos for a 1:72 Airfix kit.
    I can do you a copy, or scale it up if you're doing something bigger.

    Thank you for your kind offer.

    I am actually working to 1:1 scale full size - dimensionally accurate to 3 decimal places (mm).

    Um, that's quite a bit bigger then!!! :lol:

    Unfortunately my best photos and info are still back in NZ...I'll have a look round the net for ya though, and hopefully someone else will have the info you need.

    By the way, you could try writing the RNZAF Museum in Christchurch, NZ...they have a ton of archives, and the Tigermoth was (and still is) a very common aircraft back home.

    Hugh_T,

    I have lots of Tiger Moth pics...all are highly detailed (for modeling). Just send me an email and I'll gladly send over a Zip File. Hope this helps. Email address: matt@warbirdradio.com

    Additionally, I have a source that can probably provide restoration pics...
