And another one of my older kits to archive, here's my FR 5 from about 5 years ago. When I was a “littler” kid in the late 60's I made several of the old Hawk Models Swifts. Those were always fun kits to make but, the new-tool Airfix kit is obviously far superior. I hope Airfix will produce a 1/48 version to go with their other new fighter kits.

  1. Another nice one! I think I have the original Airfix boxing of this in my stash. Have to it soon...

  2. This is indeed a nice kit that makes up into a beautiful model. I too hope they upscale it.

    Nice work!

  3. Cool looking build!

  4. I love these classic RAF jets, including this one, a new 1/48 Airfix kit of the Swift would be fabulous.

  5. I like it for the wing planform!
