OK give us a clue what you are on about, please.

Do you mean dew...ing it like it is going to be covered in dew drops, or, do you mean de-wing it ? Inquiring minds need to know.

I'm guessing DEW as in Distant Early Warning - a Fairey (modified Gannet?) early AWACS.
What if... I had a brain?

OK, but WHICH guess is spot on?
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! :)

I'm guessing this Fairey will Do The Dew? If so....which Fairey?! The suspense is mildly inconveniencing me.

A Fairey Battle/Fulmar/Firefly/Barracuda Mountain Dew racer?
Fred

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

My name is Commander William Riker.  Take me to your women.
