jackroadkill Posted July 8, 2021 Share Posted July 8, 2021 Whilst there were a few options for this GB, I decided that this would be the build I'd go for. I've got two generations of Airfix Blenheim mkIVFs to choose from, as well as the Tamiya Beaufighter that needs liposuction, but this one came to me in a roundabout fashion and suggested itself. My brother bought me this kit based on not much more than the knowledge that 1/48 is my preferred scale and that I like heavily-armed thugs of the sky - I'd say this fits the bill nicely. He also lives on land that used to belong to the old airfield at Filton, where the BAC was based for many years. All of this stacked up, and it made sense to choose this beauty for the GB. As you can see I've bought some AM for it. I'm afraid there are no PE landing flaps or the like (I have neither the skill or the patience), and I'd still like to get another couple of bits for it - weight-bearing wheels, for example. I've not yet built a Revell kit, so this will be a build of firsts for me in more ways than one - I haven't yet built a twin-engined aircraft in 1/48. I hope to be able to get cracking in the next week or so once the Bf109T-2 that I'm building for the 109 STGB is off the bench. No promises, though - my build rate is not fantastic, I must be honest. If anyone has any tips, comments or advice to give I'd be very grateful to hear it. Cheers, JRK 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
