Boulton Paul Defiant

Boulton Paul Defiant

The Boulton Paul Defiant was a British interceptor aircraft that served with the Royal Air Force during the Second World War, designed and built by Boulton Paul Aircraft as a "turret fighter" without forward-firing guns. In combat, the Defiant was found to be reasonably effective at its intended task of destroying bombers but was vulnerable to the Luftwaffe's more manoeuvrable, single-seat Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighters. The lack of forward-firing armament proved to be a great weakness in daylight combat and its full potential was only realized when it was converted to night fighting. The model presented here was designed by Harold Price for semi-scale control-line Precision Aerobatics, aka "control-line stunt", powered by a glow motor in the .35 to .46 CID range; a Fox 35 is shown on the excellent plans drafted by Walter Musciano.
