1/48 Tamiya Beaufighter XXI 93 Sqn Borneo RAAF

This is a joint effort. My oldest son started this a few years ago in a model club I ran at our primary school. I cleaned the parts he started up, finished the rest of the build and painted it etc.
He’s happy with the colours I picked. Pistol Packin Gremlin.
Foilage green is anyone’s guess due to the various shades, the climate, the company the tint came from dyeing the war… This us my take. πŸ™‚
Hope you like. Aussie Aussie Aussie…:)

  1. Foilage green makes the Beaufighter look even more menacing. Well done this one looks great Paul!!

  2. Good job ! Good chipping and weathering.

  3. Good-lookin’ build….never see one that color, but what do I know, right?

  4. Nice paint fade, Paul.

  5. Work is good, just in moderation. But it is doubtful chipped propeller blades. They should be on the cutting edge during the rotation of the screw, but you on the back. This small inaccuracy does not spoil the overall impression of the model. Very good!

  6. Great looking Beau – like others have said, nice shading, weathering and chipping.

  7. A beauty of a Beau.

  8. Paul, is that “Pistol packin’ gremlin”? I was wondering if that was a squadron or an individual marking? I saw a picture years ago, someplace.
    Great work.

  9. Good model Paul, well done, tag it RAAF !

  10. Don’t know anything about the green but it sure makes for a good looking Beaufighter.
