1/72 Airfix Fairey Swordfish Mk.1
Despite being busy (like a long tailed cat in a rocking chair factory) I got another one finished ! It’s OOB with some scratch built items and general repairs, mostly the result of brittle plastic. Rigged with pre-blackened 2 lb test fishing line, I used a short piece of 6 lb line to separate the double strand rudder controls, keeping them in one #80 hole. I also replaced / repaired the poorly molded edge guarding around the cockpit.
This build represents an aircraft from No. 820 Naval Air Squadron, HMS Courageous, 1939.
