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 [...]

Beaufort! The New Mk. I from Airfix

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 F 2b Fighter, A-7198, 1 Sqn AFC, Ramleh airfield, Palestine 1918.

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 [...]

1/72 Bristol Beaufighter TF.10.

This is the still new Airfix kit. The kit itself is superb, featuring solid engineering and great fit. I finished it straight from the box, including kit decals for 45 Squadron in Malaya during 1949. I did make seatbelts from painted [...]

Airfix 1:72 Bristol Beaufighter Mk.X

Another nice Airfix kit completed. This is a very well engineered kit that essentially fell together. The only finicky issue was that the propeller/shaft assembly wouldn't seat fully in the engine until I filed out the opening some. [...]

Review: Build Review – Airfix 1/48 Bristol Blenheim Mk.IF

Building the Airfix Blenheim does not differ from any other aircraft – construction starts with the cockpit. So instead of walking through the whole routine I will focus on what my particular experience and thoughts are. There are a [...]
