LF: 1/72 18in aerial torpedo
« on: August 10, 2018, 02:08:21 am »
As the tinlid says.  Looking for a 1/72 18in aerial torpedo, of WWII vintage.   I am willing to pay for Postage and Packaging to Downunder.

If the Airfix floatplane Swordfish has one of those included, I've got one going spare.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

That'd be great mate.  Lets see if you can find it!

Yeah, that'd be the problem. But I think I saw it in the Model Room a week or so back.

I won't be home till Monday so the search will start then.

Brian.

I've a couple in the British WWII weapons spares box, probably from Beaufighters.  So probably 18". One has the two cradles attached the other doesn't.

Any use ?

As it appears Chris has exactly what I need - a torpedo with crutches - he wins!  Sorry, Kit.

PM now inbound to Chris...

NP Brian, better the one that works best than one you need to fettle first.

I'll put the one off the Swordfish under a Vulcan or something similar...........  ;) ;D
