Hello Ian

 

This may link help you. I have built the T.4 and it's a very nice kit.

I have a Sword F3 still to build in my stash. Everything looks good on the sprues, certainly compares well to the Airfix F6, which I have built. Decal sheet very nice too. Hope to get hold of a Sword T4 or T5 eventually.

Click the search bar (top right of the page) and you get a drop  down where you can select "This Forum" then search for "sword". The Lightning stuff starts on page 3 of the results but most is on page 4. Here is a selection:

Looks like the F1,2 & 3 are good and the T4 & 5 need a slight change around the nose ring / wheel bay then they are also good but I'm not sure anyone would notice if you just built them from the box.

 

I'm away from mine just now but I guess as short run kits they will need a bit more care in assembly than mainstream ones, just making sure mating surfaces are clean and alignment is correct, nothing serious.
