Wow, it was certainly worth the small wait as it looks stunning and more akin to 48th scale in terms of the detail and finish, quite superb!

Like it?  I love it!!

The slightly worn finish looks spot-on to me.

Don't think my own projects could stand up to close-up photos like your Beaufighter does!

This is a beautiful build and finish. What paints did you use?  I love how the colors look weathered and pale.

There’s only one thing wrong with that Beaufighter.... it’s not in my display cabinet! Honestly, that’s turned out wonderfully well and the worn appearance is very typical of these hard working aircraft. 
Cheers and very well modelled.. Dave

Excellent model! Great paint work and weathering! Well done man! 

 

IMHO, the only thing that the model would benefit even more from is if the panel line washes were varied in intensity and colour instead of being uniform all around. 

 

Again, this doesn't by all means diminish the beauty of your model. 

 

Best, 

Nikola

Welcome Jose, and well done, a fantastic build!

Great weathering, I love the tyres and engines, in fact the whole thing! Just wish I had the skill/patience/nerve to weather like that.
