Flair Tiger Moth by Colin Bassham

I didn't get into model flying until 1993, when I joined the Wortley club and started a long hard road of learning to fly. There were no ready to fly planes those days so I built from kits at the back of my garage. My first large kit was a T240 with a 28cc petrol engine. I even had to apply to the CAA for an exemption certificate. This was 1995 and I had joined the RAMS club flying off concrete runways at Acaster near York. I also join the LMA and went to Withernsea meeting where Ian Turney-White took my T240 up for its first flight. He let me land it on the second flight, and I bust the prop, but I was pleased to have got it down in one piece.

MESSERSCHMITT Bf-109E - from YT INTERNATIONAL - built by Stuart Josephs


Bought this model direct from YT and started the build back in November 2008 and completed it mid February. Good kit and it went together well apart from one tiny problem.
