This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit. Here's the third variation of Tamiya's excellent 1/48 Beaufighter. This time it's the Mk.X, complete, of course, with all the changes including a rear gunner's station, the modified fin, the torpedo and more. This is easily the best 1/48 kit of the Beaufighter yet produced. Parts are perfectly crisp with no signs of flash anywhere. The radar antennas are extremely fine -- they'll require careful handling. Pilot/gunner figure is nicely molded, too (same guy twice). Clear parts, too, are very transparent and not overly thick. Instrument panel detail is raised and good-looking, as is the rest of the modestly-detailed interior. Canopy can be open or closed. There are no separate flap parts. Overall, this kit has quite a few more parts that other recent Tamiya aircraft kits due to the nature of the Beaufighter. Decals are included for aircraft Coastal Squadron 254 and 236 (see box art).
