Airfix have done well......at this rate they'll be the ruin of me.

Mind you, I'm still waiting for the Javelin to arrive down here.

And don't forget the future Red Arrows gift set combining the new Gnat with the old Hawk in the same scale.

Makes more sense in 48, it was a bit over-engineered in 1/72. I bought 2, built 1 and sold the other.

I may get one depending on the markings in the trainer boxing-Silver and yellow or the red and white schemes please Airfix, please no day-glo orange again

Brilliant news this. I am still eager to get on with the new 72nd scale one but 48th is a real treat.

Happy Happy Happy That's me. Hopefully Vampire next year.

Been thinking about the dayglo orange. Does anybody do a decal sheet of the stuff, anything would be easier than trying to paint it.....

The nose can be posed open too, for those who like to let it all hang out.

Wings tanks on an Arrows Gnat? Only in private hands.

No, we flew a few shows with the Slipper Tanks fitted in my time on the Team.

If we flew long distance - (fitting the Tanks gave us an extra 120 gallons of fuel), and had to do a 'Show on Arrival', we would just do it.

From the Flight Reference Cards of the Display Team Gnat A/C, there is no difference in the forward C of G with Slipper Tanks full or empty.

Can I have mine now please? :bounce:

This would be ideal for the Training Types GB which starts in 17 days.

The Gnat has always been a favorite, such a beautiful little beast. It would look good painted any colour and as well as having attractive schemes has great whiff potential too.

I would love to model the Gnats from Hot Shots, Love that film reminds me of my childhood and making kits in the 90s. I made many of the old Gnats back then.
