Airfix Red Arrows Gnat

Recommended Posts

Another finish from my Therapy Build Thread, 11th one for the year! Sweet little Airfix new tool, WIP here. Some fit issues but easily overcome, painted with Halfords Peugeot Cherry Red/Mr Leveling thinner. Kit decals behaved beautifully with solid whites, tail flashes a bit thick and with a made up colour that may or may not be Humbrol 25, not any version of BS110 roundel blue.  Nose light was Eduard landing light with 10 sec uv glue/resin built up, then added a 0.3mmtube/0.1mm rod pitot to test my sanity (failed).

 

If you've got one or more in the stash, get one out for a fun quick build, its tiny cute little plane as shown with the brute of an F-15C for comparison. Now take cover, this fella is comin' in low....

Lovely job! :yes:

I’ve happy memories of Gnats flying below me in the valleys in mid Wales on numerous occasions. You could see the nose light miles away as the plane jinked down between the mountains.
