Airfix Fairey Swordfish Biplane, well it was!
Posted by PatW on Sunday, May 05, 2019 3:53 PM

Due to the age  of the kit and loss and damage to parts, I've attempted to build a seaplane!  It's very basic, I've not tried to build a plane from bits. I have made two floats from plasticard and a few struts, so I apologise if it looks a mess but I'm not happy to throw away any parts that can be used in some way.

Yeah, that's a cool what-if idea, and the floats look good.  Very much "in character", shall we say, like something designed in the Thirties.
