| Description

The Bristol Beaufighter was a WWII British long range heavy fighter, developed from the earlier Beaufort design. Featuring two powerful Bristol Hercules engines, the aircraft gained a fearsome reputation for being both fast and able to deliver a powerful blow from its four 20mm cannons and a choice of either Torpedo or Rocket projectiles. Although developed to be a fighter, and used successfully as a night fighter, it was the TF.X Coastal Command version that was most successful; its range and power enabling it to take a heavy toll of Axis shipping.

As a young modeller, I think my original Dogfight Double Airfix Beaufighter was probably my most prized possession. Looking resplendent in its striking Coastal Command scheme and equipped with eight underwing rockets, surely the Beaufighter was everything that an effective warplane should be, as well as looking quite magnificent!

Excellent kit

This is my third kit ever and only my second review. (the first being a cromwell tank and the second being a Boultonn Paul Defiant). From the beginning, i knew this was a good kit. The cockpit and observers compartments were relatively easy to build and well detailed. Almost no sanding required, no filler, and when finished, looks great. I do wish that they include a decal for the invasion stripes, as you have to paint them on. It's not hard, though, take a ruler, some
Humbrol Maskol, and masking tape and voíla, perfect invasion stripes ;). There is a decent amount of drilling, (around eight if you want both the torp (torpedo) and the rockets + holes for a stand). However, in the end it's good, especially like the options for both torp and rockets. I recommend a matt varnish. Great kit, although not the best first kit, after just one or two kits you gain enough experience to make it! ... Read more

What a brilliant beaufighter,

Wow. I have to say that airfix has done it again. This kit is excellent all the parts went together nicely, there was no flash, and it looks beautiful. The only problem I had with assembly was the torpedo, but I quicker corrected this. Very nice kit.
