Airfix 1/48 Boulton Paul Defiant Mk.I
June 20, 2016 in Aviation
Have to say, I’ve really enjoyed building my first aircraft for my Battle of Britain Collection both for RAF and Luftwaffe aircraft. Detail is superb and offers a good model for a different RAF aircraft.
I first built a defiant when I was 12 and was the old Airfix kit (Naturally nothing went right) before getting stressed out and basically scrapping it. But as soon as I saw this I just had to get it.
Problems – turret does not fit directly into the housing ring so carving has to be made, and a bit of filler here and there under the wing and fuselage
