Got to be the best kit out there for a stringbag.Built two and a Blackfish in the stash.

Yeah, I get intimidated by biplanes, but not these Tamiya ones. This particular one's going to be a former Mk. III but with the radar removed, and in post-war colors (but with Type A rounders), that was a station hack and the last Swordfish in service.

I used/will use the pe from Tamiya very good.

Yes, while it looks a bit disorganized in my stash, since I bought the Mk I and floatplane way back in about 2003, then picked up the Mk II when it was released, I've got a mixture of color Eduard PE and the old non-color stuff, supplemented with "Zoom" sets for mine. I have to admit I love Eduard PE because it's actually possible to use every single piece if you want to - which isn't true of most other PE manufacturers. Oh, and their instructions are the only ones that I believe *must* be downloaded as PDFs, since (at least on the ones since they became printed in color) they mark out stuff like exactly where the piece should be glued *precisely*, which nobody else does. They also don't do things like include a really incredibly complex piece in the middle of an assembly that would require a microscope to create, then stick an arrow saying "Scratchbuild from spare plastic" pointing at it. Aber does that in their armor PE a lot.

Mine's been in the stash for about 15 years now. However I found a nice marking option, standard FAA camouflage with Sky Grey undersides, but with the floats in a slightly different light grey, probably Cerrux grey.
