    This is a Beaufighter captured by the Italians. I don't know a lot of history on it as I only have one old grainy photo. Kit is 1/72 Airfix.

    There was a rumour around the web a couple years ago that our Yugoslavia had a beautfighter for testing ;) that's where the Italians most likely captured it from. I can't recal if anyone actually profuced a photo of the aircraft or not but meh :D (I do know Italy did capture Yugoslavian Built Do-17s and other cool items :)
