Revell to Release New Beaufighter Night Fighter Model Kit

In August, Revell is slated to release a new night fighter version of the Bristol Beaufighter in 1/48 scale.

The Beaufighter IF was one of the first aircraft to be equipped with radar for night hunting. Hidden in their own bomber stream, they waited for the rear-facing radar to come up attacking enemy night fighters, only to pounce on them.

The “Level 5” kit (03854) is reportedly a updated version of the new tool Beaufighter (03943) released in 2018 and will reportedly include new parts, a cockpit with consoles and instrument panel, separate rudder, V-tail with separate elevators, detailed Hercules engines and separate ailerons and flaps.
