Airframe Detail Series – 4th title – The Supermarine Swift – A Technical Guide
It’s hard to keep up with Valiant Wings at the moment, they just keep releasing such useful and impressive titles that all modellers love. I for one am certainly not complaining – far from it! This is a classic one-stop-shop for anyone interesting in building a model of or just finding out more about the type.
The Supermarine Swift has proved to be a popular subject with scale modellers in recent years with the release of the Airfix model in 1:72 scale – you’ll see from the attached photo that the kit makes up into a very neat little representation of the real thing. Sadly, we are very short of models in other scale for the Swift, yet we can live in hope I guess?
