This is my second Beaufort so I thought I'd build it slightly differently with the weapons bay doors closed and another colour scheme. In fact, I think I prefer it in these colors to the green/brown/sky variant.

Built the same as my other one by using just some of the Eduard cockpit set, their wheels and of course the wonderfully useful canopy masks.

Hopefully the next one will be a Mk.VII using one of Uncle Les's conversion sets from Australia as featured on Hyperscale during the past couple of days.

Decals for this one came from the Kits World sheet.

Thanks for looking again.

Superb result !

Eduards masking sets are a big help with these multi framed clear parts.

You’ve mastered this excellent new tool kit. Well done, that’s turned out brilliantly and once again the canopy framing and internal details are  faithfully reproduced. 
Cheers and very well modelled (again).. Dave

Very nice Beaufort you have there. High Planes are producing a set to convert the Airfix kit to an RAAF variant, which looks of a higher standard.. might be worth the wait their Spit Vc set is superb.

Wow! That's a beauty! It's getting to be a regular Beaufort bonanza around here! Well done! (I'm still waiting for mine to arrive via post...maybe @tonyot could do a reverse lend-lease? :giggle:)

Wow! Now that's a real beauty!

 

I hope my Beaufort, that is now winging it's way over the Atlantic, looks half as good when I'm done with it.

Beautifully done!  You really mastered this, as others have said, and in record time, too!  How do you do your washes, especially around the canopy frames?  They really look nice!!!!

Thank you. The canopy frames aren’t washed as such, maybe it’s just the light..? The washes in the panel lines is just very thin black/dark grey enamel paint flowed in by capillary action then let try for a few minutes and wiped away. Very simple really but it does require the panel lines to be consistent and not too deep or it looks odd. Hope that helps?
