Special Hobby Bristol Blenheim Mk.1

1/48 , and an interesting aircraft, and usual “interpretive” build, as one needs to get the parts to somehow hold hands long enough for the glue to set. Built several years ago, sans gloss coat, panel lines or weathering. Ignorance sure is a time saver. Still holding together pretty well.

  1. Bryan, neat to see one of those built. I am not much of a British fan, but that plane is just akward enough looking to make it interesting to build. I would love to see more pictures of this build if you have any.

  2. Great build – looks good

    I’ve always wanted to do one of those early Blenheims, mainly because my dad watched 11 of them go down around Ålborg Airport, Denmark, in 1940. Made a big impression on him.

    Off cause I do 1/32 which complicate matters 🙂

  3. You get a “10” for having the perseverance to finish that monster. I did the kit for a review when it first came out, and it is definitely a candidate for the former Bondo Industries Difficult Kit Division.

  4. Bryan,
    Very well done! Blenheim definitely an interesting aircraft; much less well-known than its younger brother the Beaufighter. Really nice job, and glad you didn’t gloss coat it. It looks more real that way!

  5. Special Hobby? I didn’t know hey did this one. I gave the CA Mk1 in my stash. Gonna build it soon-ish…:)
