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[...]
Having selected the Defiant for my award, Martin said there'd be a bonus included. and what a bonus! I'd like to thank all that make this site great! I have now in the Defiant a great selection for the RAF build.
I would like to show you this series done by my father some months ago.
My father used the New Airfix kit and he made the modification for each models.

Here is a double post for you all today. First the Eduard Spitfire VIII, this is simply a superb kit, an utter joy to build and one of my favourite kits so far this year. The same cant be said about the second build, the Trumpeter Defiant, also [...]

It was a j[...]
This is the newish and quite nice to build Airfix 1/48 Boulton-Paul Defiant Mk I. The markings it's dressed in represent 264 Squadron circa the summer of 1940 in the traditional colours of dark green, dark earth all over sky. I didn't find much [...]
My latest and last in 2016 completed build. This time Defiant Mk.I from Airfix in 1/48 scale.

Decals I used for this ki[...]
