Bristol Beaufighter Mk.VI TAMIYA 1:48

Postby ripper1 » Tue Aug 08, 2017 1:16 pm

In the presentation I mentioned that I am currently working on the aircraft model mentioned in the title. I said I'll try to present a workshop and so here it is. This is probably known to everyone TAMIYA model:

I want to build the plane shown below:

I have dealt with the interior quite quickly in total and so little will be visible from this in the finished model:

Image

Then I closed the fuselage:

Because TAMIYA offers a model with raised ballasts and the plane I was building had a perpendicular defect, it was necessary to intervene with the saw:

Image

After grinding and gluing I fixed the corrected ballasts to the fuselage. Then I riveted and left for further work.

Image

At this stage I also removed the very ugly daggers of the aileron trimmers. It will replace it with metal parts later.

I further decided to make the TAMIYA product for the Bristol engine:

Drills and bits of wires went in motion:

Painting MrColor C8 and weathering - TAMIYA panel liner

The complex engine presents itself much better than before

I also painted the propeller (C8, Chipping Fluid, TAMIYA XF-1,brush with water, XF-1 filter and finally the pigments). The whole thing so far satisfies me

I tried to improve the look of the chassis by adding some wires

Rear wheel painted but I'm not happy with its appearance I guess I have to do something about it

It was time for wings. Comparing the model to the plans listed in No. 75 of Air Monograph AJ-PRESS I found that the model is pure SF. So I had to work on a putty and carve out new lines and inspection panels.
Effect on the photos below. They also show that one row of rifle holes from rifles was removed because the plane I was building had only one row.

The removed canvas lines shown in the photos are as white lines. As you can see, I also marked the lines of rivets.
