6 years on and the original prototype still flies regularly at shows around Great Britain. (She really needs a pilot!). One of Flairs Quarter Classics Series - near scale quarter size models of truly memorable aircraft, it is a true classic.
Example above, T-5424 is painted in RAF training colours. It is flown regularly as part of the "Diamond Nine" display team no doubt reminding many a former RAF pilot of their training days.
General Construction Notes: The Flair Tiger Moth is designed for those with some experience looking for a larger near scale biplane.
