SHOWCASE

A recent project is an old Lindberg kit of a Fairey Flycatcher from the 1920-30s. A first in that it was designed specifically for the emergence of aircraft carriers. Easy to fly and liked by pilots it was the forerunner of the well known  Fairey Swordfish. This kit is built out of the box except for the use of silver (26 gauge) wire for full rigging and control cable, and the use of bits of sprue for individual exhaust piping.
