Airfix 1:72 Boulton Paul Defiant. new tooling
As I’ve just joined iModeler, finding my way around, I like to share one of my recent builds.
Airfix introduced the new tooling for the Boulton Paul Defiant in 1:72 scale, and I allways had an intrest in this somewhat unusual fighter.
It was a joy to build and it looks the part. It also comes with a choice of canopies, open or closed. A reasonable detailed interior with a poseable gun turret, Pilot and gunner figures are included, however I did not use them.
From the 2 options in the box I’ve chosen the all black nightfighter from RAF No. 151 Squadron in february 1941.
To give it a little “used” appearance on the clean black, a very dilluted wash with dark grey and some pastel powders (dark rust and grey) did the job.
I hope you like it.
