From what Ive heard about the RP rails it sounds like a bit of a fiasco.  I would hope he can get things cleaned up a bit, as any Beauf sets would be most welcome.  Ive still got a Lodela Torp-Beau in my stash to complete! 

Yes, and Derek still has my bloody set of rockets that I lent him about 7 years ago!!!

:rofl:

When I did mine I spent hours detailing the interior but ultimately it's only the cockpit and rear gunner's bit that can be seen.

Yep.

The old Revell is as basic as the basicist thing at a basic contest and needs rescribing too.

And a lot of reshaping as well. It is a bit like a time machine taking us back to 1968 or somewhere.

If only we can get a new tool 1/32 Beau. I will be all over it. Not that I have time right now. For the last 4 months my bench time was almost zero with work commitments. I have come to realize that my current job really only gives me about 6 months of hobby time, the rest I am either working or just too tired to sit and build. Sad really.

Yes excellent book. While it's nice to hear of some impending updates for the old Revell kit (which is in my stash) wouldn't it be great if we got a brand new Beau from the likes of HKM or Tamiya? (Tamiya do a 1:48 Beau and have followed previous 1:48 kits with 1:32 renditions, so why not?)

This may be out of date because the last time I saw the Beaufighter at Duxford a couple of years ago it looked a bit more complete than these images show.

Engines and/or props are the big stumbling block, but I think the team's still chipping away at her.

I've got the Lodel/Revell kit as well, and as soon as the Banff Wing Mossie is complete , then its on to a Dallachy Wing Beaufighter ,  so any help at all would be SO welcome !

I know there are some printed Shapeways parts in work now, and expected in early 2019. I have asked the person to keep me informed when he releases the parts. I will definately share when they come out.

 

Any idea what those parts may be??

There is a restored Beau down under in Oz, at Morrabain. I accidently walked over the rope to look inside. no climbing though, that would have been wrong.
