Bristol Beaufort references


Recommended Posts

Just now saw the glad tidings that Airfix is releasing a new-tool 1/72 Beaufort! Personally, I have a preference for my favorite version, but I am soooo happy we are getting a new, state of the art kit, that I don't really care which version/s Airfix will release- just give me a decent airframe, and I can do the rest, as I bet many of you can, too. Here's a short video walk around and a still walk around, along with a two-part video on  RAAF Beauforts.  I hope you will find useful. Let the reference gathering begin! (Anybody want a couple of  Airfix and Special Hobby kits?)

It would be nice if here on BM when we reference people to walkarounds that we actaully reference the ones on here, a lot of time and effore has gone into the over 45000 pics that are uploaded there.

Julien,

 

So sorry! Didn't think to look in the walkaround section, as I was so excited about the news and wanted to get reference material out there to the masses  in a timely manner- will remember to check first from now on. Mea culpa; Que lastima! Es tut mir leid!

A Beaufort! I remember FROG's effort from so many decades ago; yes, I actually built that one. Am happy that Airfix is offering one. Now for the Hampton, and all the versions of it.

Joe

Hampden! Thanks for the spelling correction!

I want a new Blackburn Shark,

Chris,

 

I think I read somewhere that MMP is doing a monograph on the Shark, so maybe that means somebody is contemplating a new-tool 1/72 kit? Sure would be nice! I have an unbuilt  Frog kit, and I have seen a couple of amazing builds, but I'm not in that league. I would think Valom or Special Hobby might be possible contenders- sure is a handsome old brute on either wheels or floats! Love that photo, BTW!

As long as it's got the cockpit canopy, I've got Pegasus engines and cowlings I can add. I have

Out of idle speculation, is Beauxfort the plural of Beaufort ?

 

Wouldn't it be Beauforti?

And W A (Bill) Harrison Bruce Robertson authored a book called Beaufort Special back in the 1970s.  One of quite a good series published by Ian Allen (Spitfire, Hurricane, Lysander, Swordfish).

I stand corrected!

I have an Ian Allen book called Beaufort Special published in 1976. Authored by Bruce Robertson. Is this the same book?

I'm sorry, you're quite right.  Bill did some of the other titles.  And it looks as if there was a reprint or 2nd ed around 1990.

Found a cockpit photo of Beaufort A9-13, a Mk V, ex-RAF T9952, and one of A9-703, a Mk IX, as well as a group of restoration photos of A9-141. Thought they would be  good references.

Ah yes, the serial offending Mr Brendan Scott

Told yes he can take photo's of our aeroplanes but they are for personal use only and not to be published.

I believe he may have not been truthful when he agreed to the terms.

Steve,

 

I was not aware of this when I posted the photo; would you like me to delete it? Let me know- I don't want to offend any BM'ers.

You can add Warpaint No 50 Bristol Beaufort to that list.
