Hi,

A good idea from Airfix, indeed, but somewhat strange by beginning with a reco version...

The Swift had a very short life as a fighter, but it showed its true colours in the reconnaissance role. There were plans to build a totally PR variant but this was stopped due to the  Hunter entering service.
