Looks great to me and it's a very timely post as I have just pulled the Tamiya Swordfish out of the stash to have a go at it too. I will be referring back to this one when I get started on mine.

That is a fabulous Swordfish Russ - I love the weathered look you've achieved there - a really good rendition of a war weary aircraft.

It is a great kit - my only gripe (which you seem to have avoided) is the slightly saggy lower wings...

Lovely work, thanks for sharing!

Cheers,

Nick.

Wonderful Stringbag!  Lovely finish and great photography too!  How do you get such a convincing faded look to the paint scheme, if I may ask?

Thanks, It`s basically dry brushed with lighter shades of paint, for a detailed insight to what works for me, just follow attached link to my Firefly build some time ago. It`s post 34 on page 2.

Hope this helps, Cheers Russ

I agree that the wires look a bit "strong", but I also noticed that you appear to have gotten the dihedral right, which this kit often seems to fail at.

 

Looks pretty nifty!

Gorgeous- rigging, elastic thread, great idea!

Thanks CMSCHLOM, The elastic thread I bought was 0.5mm, I`d try and get some a bit thinner if you were thinking of giving it a try.

A superb model, Russ, with very convincing weathering. I applaud everyone who dares a biplane build but yours is particularly good, as is the creative display. Michael

Must have missed this one first time around, but glad to have caught up with it now. It's another beauty Russ.

Hope you don`t mind if I bother you

Really russ c , bother away as often as you like, your subject matter is always interesting and the finish, as exemplified by your Swordfish are always superb. I think it is one of your best yet.
