1/72 Airfix Bristol 170 Mk.32 Superfreighter

If you’ve noticed any of my past “selected files”, you’ve probably answered the question you ask yourself while visiting the vendors at your local show, “who buys this kind of stuff?”. Here’s another one. The Airfix Bristol Superfreighter. An old kit that I believe has been rereleased. This aircraft was designed in the 50’s, to ferry traffic across the English Channel. It’s a BIG model, especially for only two engines. The clam shell doors, in the nose, open. Permanently closing them was what took me the most time. Other than that it was a straight forward kit. The size makes painting and decaling fairly time consuming also. It’s not a bomber, but it’s impressive on the shelf !
