My next victim is going to be the Airfix Boulton Paul Defiant Night Fighter 1. I shall be giving this the markings of an aircraft from RAF Wittering, 1941. The reason is simple, RAF Wittering is next to the town I was born in .
Edit: I hope I can do as good a show as Andy did, with his 1/72 version of this aircraft
When i used to do the Scotland run i used to go up the A1 and go past RAF Wittering..............they used to have a Harrier outside the gate.......looked quite imposing driving past an aircraft in the middle of the night next to the road
Back then when I was small, when my parents, grandparents and I went from Stamford to Peterborough, there was two WWII Typhoons parked up in front of the hanger facing the A1. I always thought they were Spits, but my granddad said "Paul those are Tiffys, nasty aircraft for anyone who is fighting against them" .
I remember seeing the signs for Stamford and Peterborough was one of my timing marks on the way to Carlisle.....if i got to Peterborough at a certain time i knew i was doing ok ...........i think my next marker was Doncaster by about 03.00am
The inside received a coat of Tamiya XF71 cockpit green, then some black, the some alu dry brush and lastly a wash with Abt.501 black oil paint. The seat padding was done with Vallejo 70.921 English Uniform and dry brushed with 70.879 green brown
Tomorrow I'll add a matt coat and then join the fuselage together
