Good job.

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Under the wire? You had nearly an hour!  ;)

Lovely job anyway.  :thumbsup:

Nope, not in the UK as it was around midnight here when I posted to the Completed Builds thread. The missiles didn't want to fit onto the launch rails either so I ended up cutting the locating lug off each missile and glueing them directly onto the rails where they looked right and having to eyeball the second missile to match up with its twin.

Nice job! Now that Airfix has finally given all of us Swiftophiles a decent starting kit, I suspect we will see many more versions gracing our pages.  :thumbsup: :cheers:

Yeah, I like that!  :thumbsup: :bow:

Looks so right with Firestreaks under the wings, even if I'm partial to the total bizarreness of the Fireflashes.  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

If your likely to meet up with either OGL or Young Nick or any other Sig member from South of the border at some point in the reactively near future I shall pass the items to you via them as they will be at Perth next weekend when the Swift and the other recently finished builds of mine will be.

That'll work Alastair, thanks so much. I'm sure to see OGL sometime in the next few months, probably at Coventry.

All the bits are together in a seal-able bag along with a bright coloured post-it saying the contents are for you Kit. I am putting the bag into the travel box for my models so it doesn't get left behind
