Bristol Beaufighter

Revell 1/48 Bristol Beaufighter TF. X

A build I've wanted to get round to for a while. The Beaufighter Squadrons were based at RAF Dallachy fairly close to the River Spey. I decided early on that I wouldn't be doing a Black Friday Beau so this is my attempt at RD3549 of 489 [...]

A Review of 2022

This year seems it was a blur. With uncertainty with the pandemic here not here, masks no masks, economy was in disarray, gas sky high especially here in California. The year was cruising along but in April I received a note from the new [...]

404 Squadron Beaufighter, June 6, 1944.

This is my 404 (Buffalo) Squadron, RCAF, Beaufighter, as it would have appeared on the morning of D-Day. While Coastal Command would usually have used semi-armor piercing warheads, on this day they had the 60lb warheads for Flak [...]

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 [...]

Three Me 262s: Finale

I am a member of the Warbirds Aviation Modelling Group (Melbourne, Australia: (link)). Each year we have two club competitions, "Gunna Build" and "Build a “Build a B#%@#$". The "Gunna Build" is an open build [...]

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 [...]
