Airfix 1/48 Defiant Mk.I

As a kid, the 1/72nd Airfix Defiant was a favorite model. Of all the models that I had, it was the closest to the aircraft represented. Plastic mold was black (and so was the pilot.) The years went by and I started painting the built [...]

Airfix Defiant Mk.I, 1/48. 'The Daytime Daffy'

This 'Daffy' was built during a quick break during training, I didn't have anything in the stash that I thought would be a quick build so I ended up going to the only model shop left in my area and picking this guy up, and then later [...]

Airfix Defiant and Hurricane

Two builds completed this weekend, the Airfix Defiant which will be featured in Model Airplane International Magazine as part of my Battle of Britain series, and the Airfix Hurricane which is a commission build for a regular customer. Both [...]


Here’s my interpretation of the Boulton Paul Defiant Mk. I, N1801, “Coimbatore II”, from No.264 Squadron, Royal Air Force Duxford, flown by Flying Officer F. D. Hughes and Sergeant F. Gash (gunner). This is another excellent 1/48 [...]

Night Haunter…1/48 Boulton Paul Defiant Mk.I, RAF

Built in 2015. Initially my dad wanted to build a Defiant Mk.II nightfighter with the Classic Airframes kit with the fancy red codes but he didn´t get along with the itsy bitsy tiny PE parts for the antennas, so he decided to build a Mk.I [...]

Boulton, Paul, Thorn, and Barker.

Welcome to the Whipple Special (named after a notorious contest attendee who built nothing unless he could build at least two of them) of the Airfix and (newer) Classic Airframes Defiants. As we live in the Golden Age of Modeling, kits are [...]

Airfix 1/72 Boulton Paul Defiant Mk1

Hi There, This was purchased in a well-known Edinburgh model shop over a year ago and Innis picked it, so while I was off work awaiting a Covid-19 test result I thought it was about time it was built. Innis decided it would be wheels [...]
