Bristol Beaufighter TF Mk.X

Airfix 1/72

This was a pretty basic kit - one of Airfix' classic releases (1968 stamped on the wing) and suitably covered in flash and relatively poor fitting parts. I started building it months ago but got fed up with it and it sat on my shelf, half built, for a few months until I found the motivation to finish it off. It turned out quite nice for a basic kit without much detail - though the moudlings are the wrong shape for a Beaufighter in any case. I built it as a machine from 236sqn, RAF North Coates, mainly because I used to live there

Due to the low quality of the kit, I decided not to go overboard with weathering, detailing etc and built it straight 'out of the box'.
