Revell 1/48 Bristol Beaufighter TF.X review

1/48 Bristol Beaufighter Mk VIF – Malta 1942

My first attempt at an article or work in progress on this site, please bear with me! Recently purchased (more like invested) in a Harder-Steenbeck Infinity airbrush and decided to try this out on a new kit build; this Tamiya classic became my [...]

Coastal Command Beau

Long time no visit, work life has gotten in the way of my modelling, but i managed to roll one out of the hangar finally. Tamiyas 1/48 Beaufighter. OOB build with a paint scheme i came across whilst looking for something more interesting other [...]

1/72 Airfix Beaufighter TF Mk. X Coastal Command

I call this my FrankenBeau... This was from the old Dogfight Doubles kit (along with the Bf 109 G from my prior post) so a very basic kit. No gun ports, no ejector chutes, raised rivets and panels... I had accidentally purchased a box of Haseg[...]

Revell 1/48 Bristol Beaufighter TF.X

For Revell 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 [...]

Erosion Never Sleeps – Bristol Beaufighter Nightfighter

After looking at my Beaufighter for five months, I decided that it needed a little roughing-up. So I broke-out the thinner, some swabs, and a bottle of Model Master chrome silver paint and went to town. Along the way, I managed to break the radi[...]

It was going to be literally out of the box

A while back on another site someone started a thread about building a kit without painting any of it. Just a pure build to see how well you could do without hiding flaws with paint. Most everyone said “no way.” But I kinda liked the idea and so[...]

Second Beaufighter

The first Bristol Beaufighter model I built was in the early 1970's when I was a teenager. It was 1:32 scale and I remembered that it didn't fit together very well. I recall painting the model entirely in black and even fabricated the exhaust fl[...]
