1/72 Hasegawa Bristol Beaufighter MK21

Here is my first submission to arcair. It is the RAAF Bristol Beaufighter MK21. I have buit it out of the box, although I added Eduard harness on the seats. I used Life Color paints with a Prince August aerograph. These aircraft were painted in only one green color but, due to the sun effect, the upper surfaces seem to be much lighter than the under surfaces. Otherwise, weathering is slight, except for the propellers. I have been inspired for this by several color photographs of WWII, a very nice color movie showing the RAAF Beaufighters and also dias of a Mk21 preserved in a museum. All this was found on Internet.

Best regards and thank you to Steve for this very nice website,
