This is a 1/48 Plastic Series #67 Bristol Beaufighter TF.Mk.X Kit
from Tamiya. Recommended for ages 10 and up.
The Bristol Beaufighter was a sturdy and well-armed craft that
fulfilled a wide variety of duties during WWII. The favored role of this
effective craft was ground and ship attack. When the TF.Mk.X was introduced
with a 1770 horsepower plant it became an even more popular anti-shipping
craft. Commonly, Beaus would attack in two waves where first, rocket equipped
beaus would weaken axis ships, and torpedo equipped beaus would come clean up
the mess. In March 1945, in the span of forty-eight hours, two squadrons of
Beaufighters destroyed five U-boats.
