1/72 607-50 Hawk Supermarine Swift
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+++
The Swift was a very early jet fighter to replace the Supermarine Attacker. A very capable aircraft, the Swift suffered numerous accidents early on. As a result, less than 200 were ever built and it did not see combat. It did hold a world speed record for a short time, only to have a Douglas Skyray take the record a few hours later. The problems were ironed out, but by then the Hawker Hunter was proving very capable and there was no need for the Swift and it's RAF service life was short. The most successful version was the PR variant. Early Hawk hardbox issue. Very cleanly molded kit that builds very nicely. Can be assembled with or without landing gear. Never started. NOTE: missing one square gear door which could be made from stock plastic. Otherwise inventoried complete with all other parts, decals and instructions.
