1/48th Tamiya Bristol Beaufighter
I thought it was about time to build something with whirly things on the front, so I finished my newly-acquired Beaufighter – I’ve never built one of these before, but I figured I couldn’t mess up a Tamiya kit (wrong). There are two boarding access doors on the belly that were supposed to be ‘functional’, but I couldn’t figure out how to make ’em work correctly….oh well – they’re closed. Model Master SAC bomber tan over gray primer (works for me). I opted not to install the rocket assembly but always have that option should I change my mind. I was gonna do the tan/green camouflage pattern, but after the tan coat, I said to myself, “…you better quit while you’re [somewhat] ahead…”.
