|Supermarine Attacker FB.1 by Edward Boyd|
The venerable Frog Attacker (F330). Some minor surgery performed to open the canopy, to create mainwheel and tailwheel wells and to deflect the control surfaces. The auxillary fuel tank was created from laminated plastic sheet with pieces of scrap being used for the landing gear doors, tail hook, fuel dump tube and various antennas. Paint is the usual EDSG/SKY of the period with painted red trim and decals from spare stock to replicate an FB.1 on strength with 736 Squadron during 1953 at RNAS Lossiemouth.
