The Bristol Beaufighter Tf MkX Model Kit by Tamiya recreates the aircraft that used a 1770hp Hercules XVI engine and heightened anti-ship attack capabilities. Its deadly arsenal consisted on one eighteen-inch torpedo or two 500 lbs bombs, plus eight rocket projectiles. In the Normandy Invasion, the Coastal Squadrons moved their bases to the south of England. From there, the Mk.Xs attacked and sunk many German destroyers and torpedo boats. In March 1945, in the span of only forty-eight hours, Squadrons 236 and 254, flying Mk.Xs, located and destroyed 5 U-boats.
This kit is perfect for a gift for any passionate model enthusiast or perhaps a project for you. Construct this model to recreate the skilled aircraft and paint to bring it to life!
