|The Swordfish was developed to be the main torpedo bomber of the Royal Navy during WWII. Its main landing gear was designed to be replaced with floats, enabling it to be operated as a floatplane as well. The Swordfish floatplane distinguished itself on April 1940 in the Second Battle of Narvik when an aircraft of this type catapulted off the HMS Warspite to serve as gunfire spotter for the British vessels, resulting in the sinking of a force of seven German destroyers. This aircraft also destroyed the submarine U-64 as well. This is a 1/48 scale plastic assembly kit model of the Swordfish Mk.I Floatplane. The sturdy form of the aircraft, including biplane layout, has been realistically reproduced. The kit includes a beaching trolley and a support stand as well as two marking options.|
