Airfix 1:48 Boulton Paul Defiant

Another commission build in flight mode. Straight build apart from pilot/gunner figures, wing tip navigation lights added and Master barrels to replace the kit items. The decals were after market, and I love those early schemes. A really nice kit and just falls together, I will certainly be adding one for my own collection soon!

  2. dang fine...i think your turret's sexy ;o)

  3. Another nice piece of modeling. 🙂

  4. One of the finest inflight models I can remember seeing. Splendid work overall. Funny thing that this morning I was thinking of building a model inflight. Yours just spun my imagination even more

  5. Good looking BP Def, Charles! Great paint, too.

  6. A great looking Defiant. It's difficult to see whether you used prop blur etched props or whether you've squeezed a motor in the engine compartment with some sort of battery pack concealed perhaps in the display base. Not phot shop surely? Paul.

  7. Thank you all for your very kind and encouraging comments!

  8. Great work Charles@charles-whall - love the inflight presentation!

  9. Another very nice build Charles! And I'm happy to see others mount in-flight!

  10. Great build and yes it's nice on the stand.

  11. Sweet build. I’m working on my first “in flight” build and it’s a bit of a dire rent animal to be sure. You did a great job.
