Description "MAXFORD USA TIGER MOTH 105 ARF "V2" BIPLANE MATT LACQUERED"
The de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth is a 1930s biplane designed by Geoffrey de Havilland and built by the de Havilland Aircraft Company. It was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and many other operators as a primary trainer aircraft. In addition to the type's principal use for ab-initio training, the Second World War saw RAF Tiger Moths operating in other capacities, including maritime surveillance and defensive anti-invasion preparations; some aircraft were even outfitted to function as armed light bombers.

The Tiger Moth remained in service with the RAF until it was succeeded and replaced by the de Havilland Chipmunk during the early 1950s. Many of the military surplus aircraft subsequently entered into civil operation. Many nations have used the Tiger Moth in both military and civil applications, and it remains in widespread use as a recreational aircraft in several countries. It is still occasionally used as a primary training aircraft, particularly for those pilots wanting to gain experience before moving on to other tailwheel aircraft. Many Tiger Moths are now employed by various companies offering trial lesson experiences.

The V2 ARF is in RAAF silver/yellow color scheme and a big top hatch is added to the fuselage for easy access to the electronics. Left and right wings are easy to disassemble for transportation. Customers can set it up for 50cc gas or electric.The V2 Tiger Moth will be all in Flat-finish. A flat top coat will be painted on top of the covering mylar at the factory, Flat-finish ARF is NOT FABRIC covered, still plastic mylar, but the whole airplane will be not be shining anymore. That is the major difference with previous version. Fabric covered ARF can be special ordered and will be custom covered in USA.

MAXFORD USA produces a variety of models in conventional wood construction. Special attention was paid to the choice of aircraft types in order to offer "slightly different" models than usual. The selection of models also offers some rare items, which are rarely found at model aerodromes. All models are modelled as closely as possible to the original and therefore appear very realistic. Made of plywood-balsa construction covered with high quality foil. Note: Assembly instructions in English!
