Hi guys.

 

I just finished my latest modell, number six for this year. It´s the very nice molded Gnat kit from Special Hobby in 1/72 scale. Built without any problems except the camera lenses which didn't fit properly. I used Micro Kristal Klear instead of them.

Finland used the Gnat from 1958 to 1972, eleven F.1 and two FR.1 were flown by HävLLv 11 and HävLLv 21.

Lovely. Just a suggestion - put a figure with it. No-one believes how small they are...

Very nice build and display. Until I saw your model, I didn't know there was a reconnaissance Gnat, so I learned something!

Looks great! The bull from the squadron's coat of arms on the tarmac is a nice touch. Is it a home-made decal?

Very nice Gnat. Clean and delicate work! Never realised there was an FR version.

Yeah. I have a T.1 in my collection and its tiny even next to other trainer aircraft. And that is T.1 which is bigger than a fighter version!

Very nice indeed. I believe they were delivered in a glossy finish, was this replaced with a Matt finish later on?

You could be right, it´s hard to tell on the b&w pictures. Some pics of preserved Gnats show some semi gloss finish. Maybe I give it another coating with a mix of gloss and semi gloss.

The bull is spraypainted, I cut a mask with my Silhouette cutter.

Good idea, have to look for a mechanic or pilot in my stash.
