Beaufighter TF.X by Tamiya in 1/48 scale

December 21, 2016 in Aviation

Needing something simpler after my last build I opted for Tamiya’s Beaufighter TF.X & discovered a wealth of detail on the web for Coastal Command squadrons based at RAF Dallachy in Scotland.
I was lucky to find Aviaeology decals for these aircraft; simply superb, with 12 pages of detail which I had not seen before. There are in fact, enough markings on these sheets to do up to 16 different aircraft from Dallachy, Including 144 (RAF) 489 (RNZAF) & 455 (RAAF) squadrons. .My choice was 455 Squadron RAAF. Building this was total enjoyment, as befitted my final effort for the year I hope you like it……And best wishes for the festive season & a happy new year to all.

  1. Nice looking aircraft and weathering

  2. Excellent kit (I bought one on impulse from Hannants a couple of months back because it was discounted).

    Really like the way yours has turned-out, Tony, weathered but not filthy. Hope mine turns out this well.


  3. Very nice work !!!!!!!!!!! I really like how yours turned out.

  4. Nice work Tony,I’ve built this kit and I can confirm it is a pleasure to build.

  5. Good work, Tony. Will have a look after these decals.

  6. The Beaufighter has always been a favourite of mine since getting the Airfix 1/72 model when I was a kid. This one looks great, and must be quite a substantial model in 1/48.

  7. Nice job Tony, turned out really well. Thanks for showing.

  8. She’s a Beaut! Very nice touch on the weathering.

  9. Nice work, Tony. I built that kit as UB-E several years ago using Southern Sky decals from Australia. It’s a great subject and you did it justice!

  10. hello Tony,

    Regards, Dirk, The Netherlands.
