Got my replacement model today,

The Boulton Paul Defiant WW2 night fighter, a much over looked work horse of the Battle of Britain.

I will be going for the night fighter version all over matt-black.

The parts after a visit to the paint shop... well up turned mushroom box in the back garden and a can of spray paint.

One wing being glued with the other wing halfs waiting.

Image
The fuselage (forgot to take a photo if it being built) is attatched to the wing centre section.

The outer wings and other parts are currently gluing so will post a finished photo in the next day or two, a very quick kit to put together, a bonus is the simple colour scheme!

Don't tell us, but I bet you were itching to use the black paint you got for the Comet :lol:

Looking good so far.

Almost right, the Comet is actually painted gloss black I had bought it so the paint is currently waiting a new job, I do like the comet very nice looking aircraft I might just say sod it and go and get it again.

Finished

Direct from the box build no extra detailing or anything, after the decals were applied I gave it a coat of Matt Cote to seal them in/on.

Excellent looking Model, it was one I never got as a child. I read Arthur Wards history of Airfix and according to that book the Bolton Paul is a very inaccurate kit, but knowing nothing about the subject I would not know.
Congrats on an excellently finished Model and goodluck in the comp.

Terry.
