Tamiya 1/48 scale Fairey Swordfish Mk. II

Hello iModeler! This kit was a gift from my lovely wife, and It was a total joy to build! I used a Quickboost resin exhaust pipe and EZ line for the rigging. Paints are Vallejo Model Air shot through my Sotar 20/20. The rest is scratch or ou[...]

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 li[...]

Stringbag Mk 1 Floatplane

Continuing the recent occasional Fleet Air Arm theme, here are a few photos of Tamiya's 1/48 Swordfish, c1940, with a record photo of the actual aircraft. The rigging is from a Tamiya detail-up etch set. The subject is often modelled with wing[...]
