Floating Stringbag
The Fairey Swordfish Mk.I was designed so that its main landing gear could be replaced with floats to convert it into a floatplane. In this form, it was carried aboard Royal Navy warships such as battleships and cruisers to serve in the gunnery spotting role. On April 13, 1940, one such Swordfish floatplane from the battleship HMS Warspite assisted in the sinking of seven German destroyers as well as the submarine U-64 during the Naval Battle of Narvik. This kit accurately reproduces the Swordfish floatplane and includes parts for the beaching trolley. Comes with two marking options.
