  1. In 2020 Airfix is to release a new tool 1/72nd Bristol Beaufort Mk.1 kit - ref. A04021 https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/shop/new-for-2020/bristol-beaufort-mk-1.html 3D render V.P.
  2. I've just finished a long running (10 months) build of a FROG Beaufort. Well, the fuselage halves were from the kit and everything else was stolen from the new Airfix and Frog Beaufighters or scratchbuild. Long story, WIP here. Pictures, you say: It's about time somebody released a state of the art Beaufort. I take comfort in the fact that my three previous most complex fixings of kits resulted in new releases of high standards: old Airfix Swordfish (Airfix), Airfix IL-2 (Tamiya, Academy) and old Airfix He-111 (Airfix). So
  3. Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. I present you my next model. It's typical "shortrun" without any navigation and headlights.
  4. Hello, I finished this early this morning, just added two small aerials to the nose and that was it. This is the High Planes kit, bought decades ago and restarted in 2016. I added two Airfix DC3 engines as replacements for the basic kit engines, scratch built the three aerials and mast, the set of photo-etched fuselage mounted aerials were liberated from the Encore kit (which was just a reboxing of the horrid Frog kit) and needed some alterations to make them suitable for the High Planes kit. The model was finished using Sovereign paints which I highly recommend, harder
  5. I've come to the conclusion that the only way I can make Airfix release a new 1/72 Beaufort is to make a start on my Frog one. I've lined it up against the 1/72 plans in the Warpaint booklet and there are, ahem, "significant differences" in the fuselage department. Can I assume that the Warpaint plans are right, or at least righter than the Frog model? Regards, Adrian
  6. R.A.A.F. BRISTOL BEAUFORT MK VIII No. 6 Squadron, Goodenough Island, circa 1943/44 Flight Lieutenant William "Bill" McRae Wood, DFC (Special Hobby 1/72) Hi all! Fresh from the oven! I usually don't build models under commission, but in this case it was a especial request and a favor to a fellow member of my modelling club (SAPMA). Dudley Hokings is a senior member of the club and due his age he no longer is able to build a model. It doesn't mean he is present in our meetings and he loves a good chat. Anyway! One day he approac
  7. Hi mates! For the past several months I’ve been working on a model of the DAP (Department of Aircraft Production) Beaufort Mk.VIII. This is the improved version built in Australia under license from Bristol during World War II. 700 new Beauforts were built by DAP, and were used extensively in multiple roles. “Bar the Gates with Beauforts!” My model represents “Snifter,” a Mk.VIII from 32 Squadron that was used for anti-submarine patrols out of Lowood, Q, from May 1944 until the end of the war. The model is rendered in glorious Braille Scale, as all true models should be
  8. Hi mates, Time for a new project! I finished the last project yesterday, so time is a wasting. I asked my fellow Britmodellers to have a digital look at my stash and tell me what to build. The Bristol Beaufort won a tightly contested battle, 2 votes to 1 cast for the de Havilland Sea Hornet. The kit is from Special Hobby, and represents the DAP (Department of Aircraft Production) Beaufort Mk.VIII. This is the version license built in Australia for the RAAF. At this point, I like the markings and camouflage scheme for A9-486/QH-K "Scotty's Homin' Pidgin," piloted by Off
  9. Finished this a while ago but bad weather, DIY etc. prevented me from photographing it. The High Planes kits are made of very strange soft plastic but cover this interesting variant of the Beaufort used towards the end of WW2 for freight. This and other examples carried the message 'japan has surrendered' under the wings to inform renegade units of the Japanese Army. the model is airbrushed using Acrylics which I am not a fan of and will stick to enamels in future as they seem a lot more hard wearing. Some pictures...
  10. New project and something a bit simpler than my vacform Sparrow. Decided on a High Planes DAP Beaufort transport version complete with 'Japan has surrendered' message on the underside of the wings, like this.. The kit came from ebay The plastic is odd and doesn't like poly cement much and comes in two shades of plastic with some spare flash. Oh and a few white metal bits too. The cockpit interior is basic but there is some detail on the inside of the fuselage. Started with the cockpit, mostly scratch and am cl
  11. Some time ago Procopius sent me a couple of Bristols as a thank you for driving him around a bit during his trip to the UK. Generous man I've been building my skills for this one and I'm pleased I did when I researched my chosen scheme - N1016 as OAoX of 22 Sqn. Coastal Command, St. Eval, April 1941. The instructions mention the pilot as F/O Kenneth Campbell who attacked battle cruiser Gneisenau over Brest harbour April 6 1941. His Wiki entry says this: On 6 April 1941 over Brest Harbour, France, Flying Officer Campbell attacked the German battleship Gneisenau. He flew his Beaufort t
  12. I'm currently in the middle of detailing the interior of a Mk.1 - L9878 MW-R to be precise. I have been approached by Peter Nesbitt nephew of Roy Conyers Nesbitt and I've been adding as much interior detail as possible with the aim of having some pilots in situ. The plan is to have the aircraft as if it has been stood down from a sortie. It will have the torpedo in place but the idea is to have as many hatches open ready for crew egress. I know about the port side fuselage hatch, but I'm also aware of the escape hatch in the nose underside. I haven't seen any b&w photos of this hatch be
  13. Beaufort Mk.VIII A9-559 - a composite of several RAAF aircraft, displayed as Mk.IIA DD931/L. Full history from the RAF Hendon website here. Pics thanks to Ian (Depressed Lemur) at The RAF Museum Hendon.

  15. So it´s time to KUMyA and finish the Beaufort that didn´t make it in the Obsolete Kit GB. Started here. Nothing else happened but a promise to myself to finish it! Regards, V-P
