The de Havilland Tiger Moth DH82 is a 1930s biplane designed by Geoffrey de Havilland and was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and others as a primary trainer. It is a very easy plane to fly with a stall speed of only 25 knots. However, it has no electrical system and must be started by hand. Each model features AMAZINGLY detailed laser etching and averages 8-12 pieces laser cut onto a 4" square sheet of thin metal. Easy to follow instructions are included. Makes an excellent gift for tween boys and men of all ages with average assembly time only 30 - 45 minutes!
