Bristol Blenheim Mk.IF Nightfighter, Airfix
The Blenheim from Airfix was built almost completely oob using a few accessories and a few detail improvements in the interior. For the night fighter I used one of the marking options from the kit. My main focus during the build was on a realistic black paint job, as the paint on the original aircraft was very worn, as photos impressively show. For this I mainly used paints from Tamiya.
Nice and worn 😄
Wondeful built and paintjob Chris!! Love it!!!
Thank you very much mates 👍
Nice build. Your weathering looks excellent.
Very nice night fighter. It is interesting to me how different this aircraft looks between the Mk.I and the Mk.IV versions. Great weathering on a black aircraft - a challenging paint scheme.
Also - I appreciate the step-by-step photos. Very helpful!
Awesome worn. Nice model. ?
That's a beautiful build Christoph. Really love the weathering. Well done Sir.
Congratulations on this very convincing black surface! I will use this as a reference for my future Projects on Nightfighters!
Thanks again mates for the very nice comments and likes 👍
Very well done indeed 👍
A real joy to look at! I like how the original camouflage comes through in patches here and there.
Superb build. I really like the wheatring.
Thanks a lot mates 👍
I like it to reproduce realistic weathering on a model. In the case of the Blenheim, this was a particularly attractive challenge for me.
That is a dream of a model, The weathering is just gorgeous. Simply masterful and convincing!
Very nice looking night fighter.
Thank you very much Roland and Clifford 👍
great job on that used look. congrats.
