Airfix Beaufighter TFX.10 1/72 SEAC
« on: August 14, 2021, 06:06:48 PM »
Hi All,
Not wanting to infringe on Bob's build of the Beaufighter, I decided that having a nightmare of a job with the Cessna Lynx elsewhere on here, I wanted a project that might behave a little better.
Thus far, I have managed to get the wings, tailplane, fin, and engine nacelles assembled in 1 day. I am pleased by the great fitting of the kit.
Not wanting to make the same as Bob, I have decided to make an example of a SEAC Command machine, serving in South Asia at the end of WWII.
To start the build, I have included a couple of pictures, but note I have not done any work on the interior so far.
Thanks,
Bigkev

I've got the original Airfix kit in a 'Dog Fight Double' with the Bf 109G in a shed somewhere. Ah the joys of moving house!!! Looking forward to seeing both builds of the new release progress so I can compare. I have a resin set for mine which will be fun to fit.
