| Description

The Boulton-Paul Defiant was the only ‘turret fighter’ to enter service with the RAF. The Defiant used the philosophy that a fighter aircraft, armed solely with a turret bristling with machine guns would be able to enter a bomber stream causing havoc and the turret would also enable it to defend itself from enemy fighters.

During its first few engagements during the Battle of Britain in 1940, enemy pilots were taken by surprise and the Defiant fared well but soon the Luftwaffe pilots worked out its weaknesses, especially the lack of forward firing guns and the Defiant was soon relegated to night fighting duties were it fared better.

Excellent Kit

The fit of the parts and the detail on them is excellent with only a few join seams that need sanding. It has a few customisable options which is a nice touch. The decals are great quality and well detailed. I'd recommend it to intermediate modellers, to beginners I'd recommend the 'starter set' version which is equally good.

Boulton Paul Defiant PS-U

I built this model about two months ago. It was very good. The instructions were right and precise and the plastic parts were all perfect. It was my second Defiant but the first one just has three guns in the turret because I broke the other one off. But I liked this model and hope that you will when you have built it for your self.
