Airfix 1/48 Boulton Paul Defiant MkI

I would like to present my Boulton Paul Defiant MkI.
It was built straight from the box. I only added Eduard coloured photo etched seat belts and a cut down dress makers pin for the crew foot step.
This is another great Airfix kit. I really like these new Airfix kits! Fit is great and so is the detail of the cockpit and the gun turret. I used Tamiya paints through out.

3 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  1. This is a great kit and you have taken full advantage of it to produce a superb model.

  2. Very nice Michael. Did you free hand the camo. I cheated and used AML masks on mine

  3. Why do I like the Defiant so much? It’s such an ungainly bird! But you make it seem elegant. Nicely done.

  4. Great job! Always thought this was a neat airplane. Will build this kit at some point.

  5. Good-lookin’ work, sir.

  6. Good freehand paintjob!

  7. Nicely done Michael

  8. As above sire, a fine build, and those Airfix kits have come a long was since I started the hobby 45 years ago.

  9. A great build! Well done.
