Classic Airframes 1/48 Bristol Blenheim I

December 4, 2019 · in Aviation · · 10 · 1.5K

I like this aircraft and have built it c1938. The kit however is challenging, it had an injection canopy which took some fitting, managed to get it on then realised I hadn't fitted several interior parts! Doh! The kit decals are excellent but for a pre-war bird I needed after market sheet by Eagle Strike, also top quality. The wings are just a butt fit but they worked out fine, the big problem is the wheel bay inserts, I sanded right through the roof to get them in. I'm guessing the kit is much easier, and to my failing eyes, looks better too. Sorry about the poor photos.

  1. Nice work on a difficult kit. The markings you chose are the same I'm going to use when I do the Airfix kit.

  2. very dale said classics can be a pain sometimes

  3. Beautiful work on one of the most difficult kits I ever encountered.

    Your guess about the Airfix kit is correct, sir! 🙂
