1/48  Bristol Blenheim mk. IF


Recommended Posts

The enclosed photo, taken  from a 1939 colour film inspired me to give the Classic Airframes kit a go.

 Apart from the main wheels being undersize the kit looks the part in spite of its age. Opening the sliding cockpit roof and adding two figures

were the only additions to an otherwise straight forward build.

 

Cheers,

Etienne.

Well done. Not the easiest of kits I imagine. What's the difference between this and the Mk. IV? 

This aircraft  is not a Mk IF.  MK IF had the short nose and underbelly gun pack. it has the long nose and no gunpack.

The aircraft as depicted (P4834) is a Blenheim MkIV Bomber. Its Not a IVF as it doesn't have a gunpack fitted.

 

Nice build though!

I'm not quite sure whether the build is outstanding, or just that the superb photography makes it look so!  Either way (I know, really both) GREAT job.  And now I'm going to have to compare wheels between my CA and Airfix kits...
