    Hi folks,

    my interest at the moment lies with Fleet Air Arm aircraft from WW2, I'm trying to get together kits for as many of these as possible. So far I have:
    Blackburn Skua (Revell).
    Fairey Swordfish (Revell).
    Fairey Fulmar(Airfix).
    Fairey Firefly(Novo).
    Fairey Barracuda(Frog).

    Can anyone suggest some others that are fairly easily obtainable and not likely to be too expensive?
    I have not seen either a Roc or Albacore, are these out there?
    I just recently read a book on WW2 carriers and mentioned within was a FAA plane called Martlet, anyone give me some info on this aircraft.
    Wow thats a lot of questions, well any help will be much appreciated!
    Best Regards,
    Chris

    I've been digging around Google and Wikipedia and they all state that your A/C called the Martlet, was in fact the early name for the F4F Wildcat

    Thanks scooter, just read a little(never think of google, me and computers, nah!), seems they were diverted from France to England and named Martlet here. Interesting.
