Airfix 1/72 Bristol Blenheim IV

The development of the Blenheim began when the Bristol Type 142, a civil airliner that first flew in April 1935, impressed with its performance, with the Air Ministry ordering a modified design as the Type 142M for the RAF as a bomber. [...]

Airfix Bristol Beaufort Mk.I 17/2

I have this soft spot for two engined RAF planes. Therefore, after the Airfix Blenheim and Mosquito, i decided to take on the Bristol Beaufort. I decided to do the 217 squadron scheme because i wanted to give the very dark scheme a [...]

Airfix 1/72 Bristol Beaufort.

Another gem of a kit from Airfix. Flawless fit from start to finish. Built from the box, apart from an Eduard harness I added to the pilot seat. Finished in MRP paints, with some oils for final weathering. A highly enjoyable build, it took [...]

My version of the great new Airfix kit. Of the two available scenes, I chose L9866, which flew from St. Eval and was lost on February 1st, 1941, probably to fire from a 109E. Both schemes have compelling stories connected to them; I chose [...]

Bristol Beaufighter TF.X Revell 1/48

This is my last creation. It is a Bristol Beaufighter TF.X from Revell in 1/48 scale. I simply say here that I modified the whole model a lot. So to start, I wanted some two 1/48 scale motorbikes and I liked the beaufighter from revell. [...]

Erosion Never SleepsBristol 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 [...]
