Whilst the RAF did operate Swordfish (in relatively small numbers), I suspect you are referring to the Fleet Air Arm set (WW2 Royal Navy Aircraft Set I; FH1129) which contains Swordfoish, Fulmar and Sea Hurricane aircraft.
I have the RAF set with Fairey Swordfish with PE struts and rigging. VERY finely detailed, but the PE is a bit fiddly (and too easily folded the wrong way!). You can't beat Flyhawk for injection-molded 1/700!
Flyhawk is selling FH1164 Aircraft Set 1 USN 1/700 Aircraft 6-F4F-3/4 , 6 SBDs with bombs and 6 TBDs with slung torpedo. You have to put them together, fuselage, wings open or folded, undercarriage and propeller. Included decal set. From appearance in photos (but donít quote me ) In gray molded plastic.
Look very nice and twenty years ago I would have given these a try. Too old to be attempting many tiny parts..
I wonder what the second set will be for there was the F6F, F4U, TBF and SB2C. Probably all four but less of them.
