Nice work Ian. The Beaufighter suited the Mediterranean scheme in my opinion.

Just a little update on this. I've built the base for it and painted the wheel wells and engine cowls.

Not rushing you in any way, but I cannot wait to see this finished.

Right I've got the wreck set into the base, I've also added the prop and put some filler on the plane to make it look like the coral growth. Still plenty to do once the filler is dry I will give the whole base a coat of enamel paint then while it's still wet dust it all with flour to give it a more sandy look.


Ive also fitted the aerials and canopy on the before Beaufighter and painted the gunners canopy ( it's not fitted yet ), and also painted and fitted the exhausts.

Well it's about time I got back to this one as you can see I've painted the seabed ( not quite happy with it ), and I've also painted the Beaufighter.
