Very nice kit from Airfix and rare topiic from WWII RAF.
Model depicts an aircraft operating with 255 Squadron RAF, Kirton-in-Lindsey, Lincolnshire, 1941. Note this plane has six stack exhausts for which I used Ultracast parts. Other aftermarket parts are Eduard cockpit set and Master gun barrels. D[...]
I would like to present my Boulton Paul Defiant MkI.
It was built straight from the box. I only added Eduard coloured photo etched seat belts and a cut down dress makers pin for the crew foot step.
This is another great Airfix kit. I really like[...]

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[...]
