  1. Very well built, Allan. I like that kit a lot too.

  2. 🙂 ... Greetings ... 🙂 :
    Very nice clean build Allan.

  3. I remember the original Airfix 1/72 Beaufighter, must have been back in the 1950s, this is in another world, Allan, definitely liked.

  4. Nice and clean finish on this Beaufighter, Allan. @kalamazoo
    How did you create that spinning effect, using a fan?

  5. Very nice Beau, Allan!
    I had the pleasure to follow your WiP.
    P.S. I also loved the props turning pic!

  6. That's the best Airfix Beaufighter I have seen and those spinning props are cool.

  7. Lovely job Allan - nice to see an Aussie Beaufighter!

  8. A real beauty, Allan.

  9. Well done Allan. The spinning props really make it. I didn't realize this Airfix Beau is a relatively new tool.

  10. Nice to see the completed build Allan, looks amazing.
    And who needs Photo-Shop when all you need is a fan and props that spin?

  11. Nicely done! A friend just gave me his partially built kit, but it's a bit warped. I'm trying to decide whether or not to put the elbow grease into it to finish it, as I'm not sure I can "unwarp" it!
