Swordfish MKI - Taranto night

E4F takes off last in the first wave then takes 2 hours to reach Taranto coming from the Northeast. Gasping and swaying, he desperately tries to avoid the fierce fire of the Italian gunners who have already seen three torpedoes hit their battleships. The pilot sees the silhouette of the modern Vittorio Veneto, he heads against it then releases the torpedo. So off in the darkness to the salvation of the open sea… The torpedo will miss the target.

Thanks a lot. The kit is the superb tamiya 1/48 so I was facilitated in the work.

My splashes on the sea are synthetic filter from a kitchen hood, if I remember… sure they were in my MAS (motor torpedo boat) in ship section
