    I really enjoyed this kit, it is a nicely assembled kit with options to change it. Only down side for me was I used Vallejo mask for the first time and that ruined my painting. I will stick to blutack in future, it may work out more expensive but never had a problem.

    This is the best Airfix kit I have made in years, possibly ever. It’s a new tooling and manufactured at the new factory in Kent. It is NOT made in China and boy does it show. Everything fits. I’ll repeat that. This is an Airfix kit where everything, absolutely everything fits. I didn’t have to use filler anywhere. And when it’s made and painted… you get a very impressive result.
    A couple of things. Don’t try and make this with a tube of glue, use something like Revell Contacta Professional. And assembly is fiddly at times and needs a bit of skill so a child would probably need a lot of help with this one. Which may or may not be a good thing, depends on your own point of view.

    Usually a Tamiya man, but heard some good things about Airfix’s recent new tool model kits, the Bristol Beaufort in amongst them. Decided to bite the bullet and give it a bash, even though it’s in 1/72 scale and not my preferred 1/35 scale. Box work is very nice looking and the added piece of history of the aircraft depicted is a nice touch. The sprues were a nice light grey plastic, not brittle, and had very good detail. None to very little flash encountered and no filling was required for this build either. I was worried about the amount of clear parts that had to go together to make up the front canopy, but it went together really well with no dramas at all. Airfix decals are a treat and they went on with no problems, definitely better thanTamiya decals. Airbrushed and a little bit of weathering finished it off. A really nice kit to make and I’m now ready to try their latest new model, the Avro Anson. Hopefully the pictures will do it some justice.

    This plane was an amazing build, I really enjoyed it parts were good, instructions were clear, and once painted it really looked great.👍

    This is the final piece in my Bristol produced WW2 aircraft collection. Airfix has done a beautiful job in all aspects of the kits ; decals, insructions, fit , etc. The only areas on the Blenheim, Beaufort and Beaufighter that I would improve are the rather fiddly undercart and the lack of a complete paint colour call-outs. For interior colours there are only Humbrol Paints numbers.

    Easily the best kit of this aircraft ever. Extensively detailed, panel lines not too deep, engineered for the discerning modeler. Wish it had decals and appropriate parts for a Beaufort in Malta, but easily remedied. More to come as I build it.

    My son loves these and it’s great value for money
