1/72 Airfix Beaufighter

This kit was the subject of the inaugural 2016 Airfix Cup, a category in the 2016 NSW Model Show hosted and run by Illawarra Plastic Modellers Association. The kit was to OOB with decals being the only option to change. I built mine in flight and reminded me of my childhood and countless Matchbox models that hung from my bedroom ceiling. It is a great little kit and plan to build a few more.

  1. Hi Darren. I particularly like the banner photo, it really captures something of the energy of flight. It’s a terrific build that’s painted and finished to a very, very high standard.
    Dogfights hanging from the ceiling; happy days.

  2. Great Beaufighter, Darren! Really well painted and weathered. It’s a real icon of WWII planes.


  3. Well done Darren, and on an Airfix stand too! Did it come with the kit as well?

  4. Now that’s a nice piece of modeling right there, sir….excellent work!

  5. Nice Beaufighter.

  6. Darren, this is a gorgeous build. Really striking. Well done!

  7. Darren, you sure have a knack of applying a nice finish. I have to admit I prefer airplane models to be on there wheels, but good modeling is good modeling and this looks wonderful. Well done !

  8. Nice work on this. It’s a great kit – as much detail as I would expect in 1/48.

  9. Hello Darren,
    Excellent presentation.
    Regards, Dirk

  10. She’s a beaut! Great finish on it, and love the stand.

  11. I remember building the original Airfix 1/72 kit, a long, long time ago, I’m sure it didn’t look anywhere as good as this, really neat work.

  12. Fantastic work! It’s a great kit and I’ll have to finish some other projects first before I can start mine. Very well done!
