Gipsy Moth

DE HAVILLAND GIPSY MOTH   {CIRCA-1934}

The de Havilland Gipsy Moth was the first aircraft issued to 10 Squadron (later 110 and later 400) in 1934.  At that time, the squadron flew from the grass-covered Trethewey Farm airfield (aka De Lesseps field) which was located at the intersection near Jane and Trethewey Dr. in Toronto.  The airfield was active from 1910 to 1940 and hosted the first flight over Toronto (1910), the de Havilland assembly factory (1927-28), and 10 Squadron (1934-1939).


The diorama shows a squadron aircraft on a training flight and flying low over the wooded country side.  The aircraft is 1/72 scale by Airfix and is unmodified.  The number ‘69' was a number used by the squadron.  The simulated water is poured from the bottle by Woodland Scenics.  The log cabin is a cut-down plastic kit by Pegasus Hobbies and the trees, grass, and all ten animals are by Woodland Scenics
