1/48 Dagger

This is a model of the Dagger C-407 which Teniente Jorge Senn used to attack the landing British forces at San Carlos Water on 21st May 1982. The entire flight of three were intercepted and shot down before they could make their attack, Steve Thomas claiming two kills, and Nigel ‘Sharkey’ Ward C-407. Some sources say Thomas shot down C-407, but most refer to Ward so I’m going with the weight of numbers.

The combat was at extremely low level, but, remarkably all three pilots were able to eject safely. Grupo 6 De Caza lost five Daggers on the 21st, four in the space of 20 minutes.
