Product Information (Discontinued)
A pre-assembled plastic model of the Fairey Swordish W5856.
W5856 is the oldest surviving Fairey Swordfish in the world. She first flew on Trafalgar Day (21 October) 1941 and was a "Blackfish", built by Blackburn Aircraft at Sherburn-in-Elmet and delivered to 82 MU (Lichfield) on 20 October 1941 for overseas transport to Gibraltar.
W5856 served with the Royal Navy's Mediterranean Fleet for a year. Little is known of her role while on active Service in the Mediterranean but it is likely W5856 was based at North Front, Gibraltar, carrying out patrols over the Straits. She was then returned to Fairey's Stockport factory for refurbishment during winter 1942/43.
