Thought I'd try cross kitting Blackburn Shark and Fairey Swordfish

Slap the engine of the Swordfish onto the Shark and call it done!

PR19_Kit:
I've always thought of the Shark as a 'value engineered Swordfish'.

It's smaller, neater, looks more aerodynamic with those angled struts, and it still seemed capable of doing pretty much the same job as a Stringbag.

One day I REALLY ought to build that AMT kit.  :banghead: :banghead:
