Airfix 1/72 Bristol Beaufighter (new tool)
May I present my latest off the bench, the 1/72 Airfix Beaufighter TFX. Built for our club’s (Illawarra Plastic Modellers Association) inaugural “Airfix Cup”, to be held in conjunction with the NSW Scale Model Show. The details of the club, show and competition can be found at the club website at: http://ipmamodels.net/IPMA-Events.html
It is the first 1/72 scale kit I have built in too many years to count. The contest builds were limited to a modified OOB ruling. So limited AM to be allowed. I did add the Eduard Brassin 1/72 Beaufighter wheels, Super Fabric belts and rescribed some non existent ID lights. I used Uschi superfine rigging wire for the antenna. On to the pictures:
