This will be my fourth and final entry to RAF 100 year anniversary GB. My very first ever Beaufighter in any scale. Growing up I always eyed the Revell 32nd scale kit and never tried it. In fact one day I went down to Sears (when they had a pretty good toy/hobby section at one time) to get it, but didn’t have one in stock that day I went, so I ended up getting the BF-110 instead. So I am quite anxious for finally getting an opportunity to build one. So let see whats in the box.
First we have the typical Beaufighter paint scheme in the Medium Grey/Dark Green over Light Grey pattern.
The decal for 3 schemes, MTO, Night Fighter and the first scheme previously mentioned.
The kit is moulded in the typical Tamiya med grey plastic. The details are great for this scale. Though some say that the interior is a little bare, though I think for me it is fine. I picked up a zoom set for some enhancements for the cockpit. The engines are nicely detailed as well as the stringers within each side of the fuselage interior.
Whats nice Tamiya provides the thimble nose though none of the markings in the decals are for this variant.
The set of decals I ordered for this will be for this variant and Mk.VIII radar. It will be in an overall Medium Grey With Dk Green camo on top. Will be looking forward to building this.
