British Classic - Airfix 1/48 Defiant

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow modellers,

Last summer I had a chance to buy my firs Airfix kit since more that 25years and I have to say I have been positively impressed. Really nothing to do with the old stuff I used to buy when I was a boy. The Defiant kit is nicely detailed and quite easy to build even if the turret requires a bit of patience.

As usual for me it is an OOB with just little additional details like belts, some wiring etc.  Paint has been done using airbrush and  Tamiya acrylics with Tamiya spray cans for finishing.


Any comment or suggestion is always welcome. Enjoy pictures.

Very nice. I like the grubby, well used look. It's a kit I'd like to build at some point and if it turns out as well as yours, I'll be well pleased.

Fabulous Defiant which belies the title of the thread which suggests :poop: your model plainly is anything BUT that. I think you've got the weathering just right, brilliant job, well done!

Well finished model, and great photography. I especially like the first picture - looks like the real thing waiting for a crew!

Great job..
