Fairey Gannet AEW3 849NAS on board Ark Royal, 1/72 Sword

Recommended Posts

Good evening mates,

I hadn't posted any topic dedicated to the Gannet Ifinished recently in this section yet, thus here I am,so you may have the full picture of the actual statusof my project dedicated to the aircraft onboard Ark Royal during her last deployment.

 

This is the kit.

The kit included the resin operators' pit.

To the wheel bays I added various details from scratch.

By the way the main intervention on this kit was the modification to the wings to represent them folded. Here a few pictures of the process.

Another amazing model Massimo - the work on the wing fold is a work of art in itself!!!

Brilliant job on the Gannet! I do have to say that the Gannet looks rather alarming from the front with its wings folded. Somehow reminiscent of a spider about to strike.

Brilliant Gannet! It looks real. 

 

I have this kit in the stash so will be using yours for reference, it's definitely the benchmark for how good a Gannet can be made from that kit. Outstanding!

Hello Massimo,

The Sword model is an example, what can be done with it in the right professional modelers hand.

It looks superb. Needs to be stored behind glass or Plexiglass. To keep fingers and dust away.

Regards, Orion.
