Naval Aviation GB - Airfix 1/72 Fairey Swordfish Mk.I

Finally made my decision whether to do this GB, deciding I shall tackle the challenges of the Swordfish and the rigging. I will be taking part with Airfix's 1/72 Fairey Swordfish Mk.I, it is priced around £15, but is worth it as it is a quite detailed kit. I have already done quite a bit of this model, but here goes :smile:

Right now onto the build.
Pretty complicated cockpit, very hard to put together!

Not made a very good job of these bits, but most of that you can't even see.

Fuselage put together

Horizontal stabilizers on, rudder on and engine on

Underside with a paint colour test

That is all I have for now, need to buy some paints to carry on which will most probably be this weekend. Hope you like it & hope you enjoy the build!

Right okay, sorry to dissapoint anyone, but I am going to postpone this build, as I've just got the Revell 1/72 F/A-18F for this GB, so I am going to do that instead of the Swordfish :smile:

That's a shame mate, but at least you're still taking part which is the main thing.
