Tamiya Beaufighter Night Fighter

Tamiya 1/48th scale Bristol Beaufighter MkVI. I made this model when it was originally released on 1997. This was made straight out if the box, including decal seat belts. I’ve just replaced the stretched sprue rigging with EZ-Line. I forgot that this is a fairly big model with with a wingspan of 370mm and 270mm long.

  1. Looks fantastic Julian. And this kit still holds well. I recently bought a second hand Tamiya “new in the box” of the Mk X version in 1/48. The EZ line rigging looks great too.

  2. A great build,love the finish!

  3. Good-looking Beau, Julian. Very nice!

  4. Well done. You’re right about the size, mine is a ceiling dangler
