Description

The Fairey Swordfish, by some accounts, was one of the finest warplanes of all World War II. It was highly reliable, capable of launching from carriers in most weather conditions. This was in spite of its anachronistic biplane frame. The Swordfish served in spotter, reconnaissance flight and torpedo attack roles. Highly versatile, it could carry a number of different rocket payloads, and could, therefore, be effective against coastal shipping or submarines and coastal fortifications

Various marks of the Swordfish achieved some notable wartime feats, including the first U-boat sinking, the decimation of the Italian fleet at Taranto and the prevention of the German battleships Gneisenau and Prinz Eugen from passing through the English Channel – by way of torpedo attack).

Models supplied unassembled and unpainted
