I've a couple of torpedoes in the "spare weapons"  box, but no idea what they came from.  One is white, and I think may possibly have come from a very elderly Airfix Swordfish.

It's specifically the Airfix new tool one I'm after - all of my torpedo strike aircraft use the same torpedo base for consistency.  Ta for the offer anyway.

Lee

Do you want my Beau' Torpedo (I built the rocket armed option)

I'll have a rummage and see if I can find the gear. I was a bit tired yesterday and I was struggling a bit rummaging through the "odd bits box"

Re: Wooksta's Current wants list 2020 - F100 required

Updated to add a request for an F100 Super Sabre - yeah, I don't do US stuff but I * think it might be a decent basis to scratchbodge a Supermarine 545 F2 or possibly the T-bird.

Only the most basic of kits or wrecks wanted - TBH, all I really need are the wings and the fuselage.  I did look on the bay of evil for a cheap PM one but I'm not paying more than a fiver for that "inaccurate parcel of dogturds"

Yes please, Chris.

Lee PM me your address and I'll get it off next time I go up the Palace.

I also found the flying tail, or whatever they called it. Plus whilst not finding the kit's fuselage shackles I found two in the spares box that could be clones. They are obviously from a limited run kit by the soft plastic but should do you.

I'm currently after an Airfix Battle of Britain airfield base.  I don't need the rest of the set, just the revetment base.  Been thinking about it as a base for a decoy Swift F3.
