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.

Great set

I got this on winter vacation and it was my second model ever(the first one was a Cromwell tank witch I severely dismembered) The instructions were simple, the molding great, and the fit even better. There’s no drilling required, except two holes for a stand, and nothing was to difficult, although the landing gear was a bit fragile. Easy decals too.keep making these sets Airfix!

great way to get back in to it!

Bought this kit as a way to get back in to modeling. Hadn't built a kit in almost 15 years, and this was just what I needed. comes with everything you need and makes a great looking plane. amazing detail for the scale too!

Excellent Kit for Beginners+

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, and there's just enough of them to make the kit look good. The paints, glue and brushes you need to complete the model to a basic level are included which is why I'd recommend it to beginners and above.
