  1. Some three years ago I came across the old Fujimi 1/700 HMS Eagle R05 kit. As most of us know, the Japanese have equipped this kit with two completely different air wings - one is made up of 4 Seafires and 4 Sea Furies and the other consists of 4 Gannets and 4 Wessex helos. Unfortunately, neither piston-engine fighters nor helicopters were on board the R05 at the time of her baptism of fire in 1956. After many months of searching, I was able to assemble the 1956 air wing of 1/700 Seahawks and Sea Venoms, which may be accompanied by Gannets provided by Fujimi. Obviously, the Gannets were not us
  2. After the 1955 refit (angled deck introduction) HMS Eagle sailed in May 1956 to Malta with the air wing consisting of Seahawks, Sea Venoms, Wyverns, Gannets and Skyraider AEWs. Then the Gannets were flown home from Malta and R05 took part in Operation Musketeer in the end of October. Afterwards (somewhere in 1957) another Gannet flight is listed again as operating from the Eagle deck. My questions are: does anybody know the dates when the first Gannet flight (812 NAS) left the Eagle deck and when another (814 NAS) Gannet flight landed on the same deck after the Suez campaign?
  3. Here are my last kits completed in 2020. The first 2 from the Shelf of Doom and are the Revell (Zvezda) MiG-31 Foxhound and Sword Fairey Gannet AEW.3. The Gannet needs the aerial wires fitted but I am waiting on replacement decals. The last one is Airfix AV-8A Harrier with decals from Caracal of the first Marine AV-8A Harrier squadron to serve as part of a Carrier Air Wing (CVW-19) in 1976-77 Many thanks for looking.
  4. This is an old build but freshly repaired! If deemed inappropriate here mods please remove. This is the Dynavector Fairey Gannet kit which is 20 years old now, being a massive Gannetphile and with only the Frog (and derivatives) Gannet in 72nd available at the time, I had to build this one as soon as it came out. I had never made a vacform before (and this is still the only one) so I was a bit worried at first, however the build of this kit was actually pretty straightforward and really enjoyable. I added very little to the kit, just various aerials and probes etc, panel scribing, and weat
  5. Well, I've spent plenty of enjoyable hours reading and marveling at other members' WIP topics, so I thought it was about time that I put something back and did one of my own. I don't claim to be anything other than a mediocre modeller, and I don't have the literary skills of a Procopius, but I do have ... well, what do I have? A stash, some paint, some hairy sticks, and a love for building things out of plastic. Anyway, the title may just have included some spoilers, but I'm taking the plunge in partnership with Trumpeter's 1/72 Gannet. I've loved the Gannet for a long time, with its rather i
