Hey guys,

I hinted earlier at some snags Halfwit and I ran into on the Beau. It hasn't been anything too difficult, but we have refined and refined the Beau Mk. I for weeks. Crap like re-doing the little cockpit and re-mapping the skin, canopy, exhausts etc...It's just about done now and I think it looks pretty good. I think Halfwit wants to kill me now, thank goodness we live 5000 miles apart. Enjoy. More Mk.s coming real soon.

It looks fantastic! Great job!! Looks like a little model I made many years ago. This is one tough bird, looks like it could survieve a crash with a T-34 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Really excellent work! It would be nice to use this agaist shipping!

But it seems to me like it has 4 cannons in the starboard wing and 2 cannons in the port wing? Or is it just something that looks like gunports?

well, these two gunpods you mention seem to be to my eyes some sort of lights, perhaps landing lights?

Beautiful model. Any chance of seeing it flyable?

PS: the plane DID have 4 machine guns in a wing and 2 in the other (and cannons in the fuselage), it's not a mistake.

4 .303s, and 2 .303s in the wings.

I think it was the Mk. 21 that changed
to 2 .50s in each wing?

Guys,

The Armament is correct. Wait till we do the Mk. VI which was multi-role. This plane was the JU-88 killer. If we can ever get it flyable it will be a blast.

Really nice! In a book, "Nightfighter," which I read many years ago, there was a long description of the radar operator's station. The scope was a primative affair, according to the book...large, with a small, hard to see screen. Love to see one of the good painters do a version for the template.

Top notch quality on the Beaufighter. Definately a well used aircraft in multiple theaters of war and a nice thing to see in Forgotten Battles.
