Default 7 Swift’s built by E. James Small

I hope it's legal to post to another forum ...but what the heck

http://www.modelermagic.com/?p=37166l

Jim really did them proud! The paint and weathering is very convinsing. No doubt he has been through a couple of nightmares assembling all those landing struts (I did, making only one kit... )

A bunch of happy SAW's customers for sure!

I am in the process of making mine - one of the best resin / aluminium kits I have ever made - and having been up close and personal with the original model several times, it is spot on in all respects.

Just a dream, but I would be so thrilled to have my kit pictured aside the Studio Swift...

A very impressive 'line up'! I'm sure the respective owners will be hearing some very envious sighs from their mates.

Default Great Builds Great Kit

Alex's kit is brilliant. The legs will be a challenge ( I'm practicing with scrap rods !), but Alex's instructions are detailed and clear.

Plus, Alex is a great guy to deal with... my original order was sent safely and quickly...and when I needed replacement parts due to an "accident" on my part Alex was kind enough to cast replacements for me !

EJS's builds are an inspiration...I'll be taking mine slowly .....
