Aeromaster made at least two sheets, #48080 and #48088.
I have the MK.I, Mk.I/Floats, and Mk.II, the latter on the bench now.
What specific decals did you need ?

I might be willing to share. i too purchased the Swordfish. I was planning on building either Eugemne Esmonds version, or one 
that got left behind in Cape Town. I have a picture of my father standing next to teh burnt out skeleton of this aircraft. 
Contact me off list and we can discuss this.

While I haven't build my Swordfish yet, I figured the quality was worth the
high price. That's a lot of plastic in that box amd it will most likely fall
together the way a comarably priced resin kit won't.
So does anyone feel like donating their un-used Tamiya swordfish decals to
the Heretical cause?
I've been searching for aftermarkets but haven't found any Swordfish
specific sheets.
I've got some Aeromaster Shturmovic decals for trade.
Any interested parties should contact me off-list.
