Zvezda 1:144 Fairey Battle

Top view
This is Zvezda's 1/144 scale kit of the RAF's Fairey Battle, one of the most promising light bomber designs of the mid-1930s, but which proved to be woefully inadequate in the skies over France in 1940. They were suffering as much as 50% casualties on any given sortie, and they were immediately withdrawn from front-line service after the Battle of France and relegated to duties as a trainer or engine test-bed.

I haven't bothered showing the underneath view, as it's just all black without any markings or anything — the standard RAF livery for day bombers of the time.
