    Hello

    To build this model I've used two kits- Revell 04670, and over 50-years old(!) Airfix kit. Engines with nacelles, propellers and exhausts are taken from Airfix. Front plexiglass-handmade, some corrections in ailerons, fuselage front, wingtips, tailwheel. Paint: Gunze C, decals: Xtradecal.
    640 RAF sqn, Leconfield 1944.
    Two sets, and only one completed model seems to be poor productivity (ha, ha!), but I enjoyed the build.

    Very nice. The Halifax rarely gets the love she deserved, a hard working and faithful trooper and you have captured her quite nicely.

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    Very nice looking model. I'd love to do an 1/48 RCAF one Karl but just can't justify the cost of either kit......yet.

    Nicely done. And I agree, a reasonably priced 1/48th scale kit would be very welcome, preferably the MkIII.

    Thanks for Your opinions.

    Contrary to Merlin powered versions, Halfaxes with Hercules engines were called proudly "the first after Lanc". It was a great praise, of course. I like this plane too.

    I've changed H2S radar housing (bulge). Original Revell part was as much incorrect as it could be(!).

    Great model. I really like how you applied camouflage, very clean. Also, cockpit framing paint work is excellent.
