Great kit to build, the markings were made from the kit decals.

 

All the best

Awesome build. I like the weathering done in just the right amount.

Lovely rendition of the Swordfish. I have one of these lurking in my cupboard...I'll get round to it one these days.

Really great Swordfish!

 

But the size of your photos border on the ridiculous: 4600x3450 pixels! They cover all of my 5K 27" screen! 50% of that size is plenty enough. 😉

 

B----y good model, though.

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

Really well done.  How did you find the overall build quality of the kit?

Cheers everybody,

Apologies for the size of the pictures, I never checked that!

 

Apart from the rigging ( and you can buy a photo etch Tamiya rigging set separately for the swordfish) everything you see was included in the box.

I built this for one of my relatives for display so used ez-line for the rigging as it's more forgiving if it is handled. You may notice I left off the rudder and elevator control lines,  it displayed in the open and I wanted to minimise chance of damage.

It is a very nice kit to build I had no problems and no filler needed! 

 

Thanks for the kind words

Enjoy your plastic! 

Gary
