    Hello, fellas... I have just bought this nice 1:138 scale diecast Fairey Swordfish Mk I with floats (SERIAL P4084 - Royal Navy) from Model Power. The diecast itself is very well detailed, despite been a very small model.But, the problem is -- its case did not bring any info about the original airplane. I have found this profile in the internet, but I didn't find any info on this airplane in the net so far. Can any of you please help? Thanks in advance!

    It appears
    to be a 765 Sqn Swordfish Mk I, based on Gibraltar in 1941

    Thanks, Colin... I appreciate it. Is this the RNAS Sqdn that caused so many damages to the Italian fleet in the Mediterranean?

    You mean at Taranto i assume. No, all those aircraft had wheels not floats.
    Here's a link for the Taranto attacks
