I have always liked the Defiant and had started this Airfix 1/72 Defiant Mk I and then put it back in the box. Well, now its finished! I added Eduard Zoom to the interior, Quickboost gun barrels, exhaust and pitot/antenna masts. Aires resin for[...]
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[...]
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[...]
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[...]

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 [...]

Airfix introduced the new tooling for the Boulton Paul Defiant in 1:72 scale, and I allways had an intrest in this somewhat unusual fighter.
It was a j[...]
