Hello Chaps,

 

It's been quite a while since I posted on here, due to life and work, but today, I've finally got a little time to post something.

This Revell of Germany kit is another great kit produced by them, engineered well, good quality molded parts, nice details, and everything goes together very well. I only required a little filler and that was at the joins of where the canopy and front nose end window fitted to the fuselage.
Flash was very little if anything, ejector pin witness marks were kept away from visible surfaces and nothing was warped, but, exactly what you'd expect from a recent tooling from 2015.

It's good value for money too, 257 parts in total for $34.67 from Hobbylinc.com.

I built this model straight out of the box, the only addition being the two antenna cables that were made from .010" fine black EZ-Line.

I bought mine from a local store that I had a $5.00 off coupon, so, less than $30.00 for me.

 

Conclusion: Super kit, great price, highly recommended!

 

Anyway, enough waffling, here are some photos, hope you like....

 

 

 

 

If you'd like to see my YouTube build and "Final Reveal" videos for this kit, then here are the links to all 6 videos:

Happy modeling and keep having fun!

 

Cheers,

Martin

Great looking Halifax! Thank you very much for the build videos - an easy way to learn new techniques. I'll be keeping tabs in your YouTube page. Thanks for posting!

Thanks Hobo, much appreciated and you're welcome for the videos....I tried to post photos, but nothing came through from the links to them, that I used?
 

Cheers :)

Great addition to your collection Martin. At least this one had better guns than the old Airfix Wellington. I like the finish you have achieved on it.

Thanks Greg, much appreciated mate, and yes, that 1959 Airfix kit had Lego style guns...BIG! :P

 

Cheers :)

Wow!  Brilliantly done!

The weathering and shading is so convincing - just superb!

The black surfaces are particularly realistic IMHO.

Definitely one of the best 1/72 Halifax I've seen, for sure.

:clap:

Really an outstanding build, Martin, especially in regards to the painting and weathering! The top camo colors "blend" (for lack of a better word) very nicely and the black is quite realistic. 

 

I'm glad to hear it's such a nice kit, since I have one in my stash. Now that I finished the Stirling and have started the Lancaster, the Halifax is on the horizon.  I'll definitely check out your videos when I start mine.

 

Cheers,

 

Mark

Beautifully built and finished and very useful videos.

 

The only thing I didn't like - in my opinion the topside green looks the wrong shade.

 

Cheers

Thanks for your kind compliment, Mark, much appreciated! :)
Sounds like you have a penchant for British bombers of WWII...have you posted any photos on here of your Sterling?


Cheers :) 👍🍺🍺
