Revell's all-new 1/48 scale
Beaufighter TF.X

by Brett Green

Bristol Beaufighter TF. Mk.X

Meng's 1/48 scale F-35A Lightning II is available online from Squadron for USD$59.99




I have just completed a test shot of Revell's all-new Bristol Beaufighter TF.X. 

I conducted an in-box review of this kit in a recent Squadron ScaleWorkshop video, and I described construction in a Feature Article last week.



The model was painted using Tamiya and Gunze acrylics. The lower surface is Tamiya XF-21 Sky, while the faded Extra Dark Sea Grey upper surfaces were achieved using a base coat of Gunze-Sangyo H69 RLM 75 Grey.



Decals are from Avieology, representing RD432/L1 of 489 (NZ) Squadron based at RAF Dallachy, situated east of Elgin, Scotland from March 1945.

These decals are currently in the process of being re-printed.



Thanks to Terry Higgins from Sky Grid Studios for providing the decals and for his invaluable advice.

I have written this one up for a big article in Issue 89 of Military Illustrated Modeller magazine, and Terry will have an accompanying reference piece.
