This is the newish and quite nice to build Airfix 1/48 Boulton-Paul Defiant Mk I. The markings it’s dressed in represent 264 Squadron circa the summer of 1940 in the traditional colours of dark green, dark earth all over sky. […]

‘Different’ Defiant

by IAN JACKSON on September 25, 2016 in Aviation -- 20 Comments

Not simply a ‘great Airfix kit’, in my opinion, one of the best fitting and rewarding kits of any manufacturer that I’ve built in years. No I’m not one of those folks that screamed and shouted for a 48th Defiant […]

Considered by some to be elegant, dismissed by others as one of the ugliest monoplane fighters of all time… the Defiant was a British two-seater built by Boulton Paul Aircraft as a “turret fighter”, literally designed around a novel hydraulically-powered […]
