| Description

The first types of Handley Page Halifax, the Marks I and II, were fitted with in-line engines and triangular fins and it was not until 1944 that the radial-engine Mark III appeared. The Halifax B.III, in addition to its more powerful engines and redesigned tail unit, featured much heavier armaments than the earlier aircraft and a greatly improved performance.

When production ceased in 1946, 6176 Halifaxes had been produced, and over 2,000 of these were the B.III variant. The Halifax B.III was powered by four Bristol Hercules XVI engines, each of 1,675hp, giving a maximum speed of 451.20km/h and range of up to 3,176km. Bomb load was 5,895.70kg, up to 4535.90kg being carried in the fuselage and 1380.75kg in the wing bomb cells. Defensive armament consisted of nine machine guns.

The cockpit is annoying to put together and the middle bit poked out where I didn't want it, the undercarriage is OK but the wheels are hard to get on without snapping something. Paint looks good if you spray the black

Very good model but one or two things did not quite fit and had to make some adjustments.Now it is complete with the adjustments it looks great though.

As other reviewers have stated this is on old kit. I haven't started building yet, but already have a minor niggle. The rear and upper turret rely on the crew figure to fit the guns, so you have no choice but to fit at least these crew members - but no where on the instructions are painting details for these mentioned.
