Blenheim Overpainted Roundels

Hi folks I’ve just recently bought the 1/48 Bristol Blenheim and I’m very excited about getting started with it! The scheme I want to build is a pre war one with over painted roundels, however I can’t seem to make sense of how to do [...]

Airfix 1:48 Bristol Blenheim Mk. I

I finished this in August 2021. I enjoyed the build, which is OOB with the exception of some Eduard photo-etch seat belts. This recent Airfix kit is quite complex. From a fit point of view it's not as well engineered as Tamiya, but what [...]

1/48 Bristol Blenheim If.

Classic Airframes 1/48 Bristol Blenheim I

I like this aircraft and have built it c1938. The kit however is challenging, it had an injection canopy which took some fitting, managed to get it on then realised I hadn't fitted several interior parts! Doh! The kit decals are excellent [...]
