Sword Skyraider AEW1 in FAA Markings


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

This is my build of the Sword Skyraider, I folded the wings using the Airwaves photo etch set which is meant for the Hasegawa kit but with slight modification it will work with the Sword kit!

 

I also changed the markings using both the kit decals and those from Avalon, to an aircraft that landed on HMAS Melbourne although I have not been able to replicate the Roo zap!

Thanks for posting!, those early AEW birds with their huge belllies are very fascinating. 

 

I have this kit in the to do pile, along with Swords AEW Gannet and Avenger kits (as well as a Skale Wings EA-1E). 

 

Cheers,

 

Andre

Nice to see this one up and showing, Sir. Looks awfully good.

 

The Skyraider always was a big brute, and this version makes clear just what a beast it was. A Blackburn Blackburn for the Cold War.
