SUPERMARINE FR Mk.V ‘SWIFT’

(4 customer reviews)

A close to scale model by skilled designer Chris Golds of the developed version of the 1950s RAF fighter and photo reconnaissance single-seater. This two AO sheet model plan is not for the inexperienced as retracting undercarriage is a main feature. The result is an exquisite flying model that is so realistic in experienced hands.

    Built and modified to accept a turbine. Good design

    Purchased the plan in 2018 as I love the early 60’s jets and started the build in 2020.
    It’s a good design but I did modify it to accept a turbine, moved the landing gear to the scale position, added flaps and made the outboard wing sections removable for ease of transport.
    It flew with a P60 but it was on the heavy side at 7kg take off weight. It still flew really well and I can imagine at the design weight of just over 3kg it would be a very docile flyer.
    I have since fitted an X60 which has reduced the weight to closer to 6kgs.

    Had the plan for a long time and finally started to build this model in 2020. I modified the design to accept a turbine, moved the gear to the scale location, added flaps and made the outboard wing sections removable to make transporting it easier.
    It has flown twice on a P60 but it was a bit heavy with a 7kg takeoff weight. I have now fitted an X60 and the weight is closer to 6kg.

    Had the plan since about 2018 and my sim was to put a turbine in the model.
    I started the build in 2020 and I am just getting close to finishing it.
    I have modified the design to accept the turbine, added flaps, moved the main gear to the scale location and made removable outboard wing sections to fit it in the car easier.
    It has flown twice on a P60 but with an AUW of 7kgs it was a little heavy. It has been retrofitted with a X60 and the weight is now closer to 6kgs. Looking forward to flying it again now.
