The 1/48 Tamiya Fairey Swordfish has been
out for a number of years now and has included the Mk I,
II, clear edition and float equipped versions. As an optional
extra, Tamiya released a Photo Etch set to cover the modellers
worst nightmare - the rigging!
The photo etch set itself only has instructions
on how to apply PE rather than which piece of PE goes where.
To find this information out you need to go to the Swordfish
kit instructions where you get a fully detailed set of
instructions on what goes where. The kit instructions are
easily understood of when to use the PE set as they have
'DP' as required at each stage.
Example of kit instructions
the engine wiring harness bending in stage 9 and
the use of the kit part to help
Like all PE sets you need to take care when removing the
PE from the fret and then applying it. I have no doubt
that prior PE application experience is required to get
the most from this set. To that end I recommend this set
for those that have some experience but it could be a good
set to start on.
