Oscar EW 5894 Phallus Lightweight Tactical Fighter Bomber 1/72

Recommended Posts

Oscar EW 5894 Phallus Lightweight Tactical Fighter Bomber (or Folland Gnat) from the film Hot Shots. Based on the carrier USS Essess. This is the special hobby kit which goes together really well, all apart from the canopy, the fit there was terrible, but might have been me?

Looks as if it built up well. One of my favourite scenes from the film is when Lloyd Bridges has his false teeth in upside down.

These markings are now available in the Airfix 1/72 Gnat kit as a factory option. Airfix must have some cool guys in marketing.

Excellent, I believe the original was very good at penetrating enemy defences......

Julian can you remember what colour you painted this model, FS No or the such? The reason I ask is that I am making one and the paints that are suggested on the instruction sheet are not the ones that I use.
