Revell 1/48 Bristol Beaufighter TF.X

February 27, 2021 · in Aviation · · 10 · 2K

For there's a fair amount of detail here but the fit is a bit iffy to say the least. I saw on here that somebody else had had issues with the fit of the engines and main undercarriage. They were not wrong. Still, with a bit of following my own intuition and minor surgery I got them to fit and line up. I'm still not happy with the cowl flaps but it's not that noticeable so I left it.

    Detailing on the engines and interior is very nice.
    Well done.

    Nice results Matt.
    This for sure makes for a very good Bristol Beaufighter , the painting and the weathering
    are really well applied.

  4. Nice job on the Beaufighter! This looks like a new mold kit from Revell?

  5. Very nice! I'm working on an old Airfix 1/72 Beau now... One of my favorite twins - just looks brutish.
