It’s been a long time. Due to this unhappy times going on in the world, I’m grounded for a couple of weeks at least, and maybe longer. All our work has stopped, so time to hit the bench and get some kits finished. So I did a lot of work on my Beaufighter. Still building strait from the box, the only thing I added are the landing lights in the port wing leading edge. Airfix provides the correct glazing but there is nothing inside. As the lights are quite visible form the outside I scratch build some using a tiny strip of Evergreen for a base and added two small pieces of Evergreen rod, after painting added two small pieces of Bare Matal Foil. Another item which Airfix does add in the kit is the wooden stabilizer, mounted at the rear end of the torpedo. Decals worked absolutely fine, with also a lot of stencelling. Paints used are from Hataka acrylics and came from their RAF coastal command paintset . With the last items to work on I’ll add some pictures to this posting with the progress I made. Hope you all like it, and as allways your comments are welcome.
