Random Award

I was chosen as January Random Award receipient . I chose the beautiful 1/48 Airfix Defiant MkI from the long list of available kits. It’s a very unique aircraft and I’m excited to add it to my collection. Thank you, imodeler for the awesome gift.

Black shark: Airfix Defiant

What can I say? The Defiant and particularly this aircraft was long overdue on my wish list. In fact it was more than 30 years long due. I was a young boy when my father offered me Airfix 1/72 BP Defiant and the model shown on the box was this [...]

100 Years of the RAF, No. 264 Squadron, circa July 1940, Martlesham Heath, Suffolk, England 1/48 Airfix BP Defiant

Here's another completed project from the 100 Years of the RAF group build. This one also happens to be the monthly random kit award that I received from Martin and his staff a while ago. As promised, I wrote a kit review on the model, and[...]

Airfix 1:48 Boulton Paul Defiant

Another commission build in flight mode. Straight build apart from pilot/gunner figures, wing tip navigation lights added and Master barrels to replace the kit items. The decals were after market, and I love those early schemes. A really nice ki[...]

1:48 Scale, Airfix, Boulton-Paul Defiant

This is another one of Airfix's "New Tool" kits. It is a good kit, that also builds well, and it's a subject that is not often seen. I found it enjoyable, and would also recommend it to anyone. Trumpeter also produces a Defiant F.I, which see[...]

Airfix 1:48 boulton paul defiant

The model represents an aircraft from the No.2(Army Cooperation) Squadron, KO•I, s/n N1572. Only one was trialled and rejected. This was a great kit to build. The fit of the parts is fantastic for the most part. I had an issue joining the fusela[...]
