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. the whol[...]

Erosion Never Sleeps – Bristol Beaufighter Nightfighter
