If you mean the British biplane that sunk the Bismark in WW2, a laser cut short kit is
available for a small electric vession. The model was featyred in MAN I believe a few years back.:):)

They didn't sink her but they had one lucky hit that jammed the Bismark's rudder then the next morning the British navy found her. She was unable to maneuver and bring all her guns to the fight and they put her down

A friend has one, large scale powered by a four stroke 160 twin, sorry, this is the only pic I have of it being static judged at a National Champs. I think it's built from English plans. - John.

Google Image search, first place I'd look. Three large 3-views with fuselage sections on the first page of the search.

I could be wrong, but the question may be directed to building a swordfish, as in the kind that lives out in the ocean. Would be a neat concept.
