Airfix Blenheim 1f

Recommended Posts

Latest build finished. Cracking kit with no major problems, apart from getting the nose section to meet up with the fuselage ...a little tricky. Paints are a mixture of Vallejo and Tamiya and aftermarket decals from Xtradecal and the kit. I made a mistake in fitting the underwing night fighter aerial but it's too late to remove now so it will have to say put. Experimented with using a coastal kits background base set but unfortunately the 1/72nd scale one seems a bit too small for medium to large aircraft! 🤔 Photos not the best as they're only off my phone.

Thanks for looking 🙂

Nice clean build. I agree with on the background.  They should have a set that can be extended by joining two together.  It is a good idea they just need to go that little bit further to make it work well.

Very nice, but it looks like you've forgotten some bits. Parts D19.

I nearly opted for a middle East desert scheme....next time perhaps. It does look good in the middlestone dark earth colours.
