What’s on offer here is an impressive kit – first released by Revell only a couple of years ago in 2018, now with changed decals and flat tailplane to represent the 1F Nightfighter version of the Beaufighter.
Take a look inside the box with me now
Here are some still photos of some of the sprues: Interesting silver/grey plastic, recessed panel lines and surface detail, ultra clear canopy, nice cockpit detail and excellent detail in the engines and on the undercarriage units – plus more.
I really like the look of this kit and I built their initial release when it came out – you can find that in the usual place for completed full builds of Revell aircraft kits: Aircraft-Finished Now-Revell. That build has several HD video demos in it.
The decals cover two aircraft. The decals are high quality with good colour saturation and tone.
Here’s my summary…
