1/48 Airfix Blenheim Mk.I Bomber
I decided to do the Airfix Blenheim Mk.If kit as the Mk. I bomber. All it required was using the excellent Vector bomb sight and the alternative clear nose part, with the lower port panel buffed clear, supplied in the kit. I had the Eagle Strike decal Blenheim pt. 2 in my decal stash which had the markings of K7040 of 114 Sq. which was the plane I decided to do. The model represents the 7th plane from the first batch of 150 delivered between Jan. 1937 to Jan. 1938. I also used SBS engine and cowling set to replace the kit parts. The resin castings are superb and are light years better than the kits parts. Gaspatch’s fine Lewis machine gun which is far superior in detail to the kit part was also used. Eduard seat belts were the only addition in the cockpit as the kit details are quite nice.
