1/72 AIRFIX GNAT – RED ARROWS

March 2017 – Finished this quick build of the recent new tool version of the Red Arrows Gnat

I built the original crude Airfix version back in the 1970s a few times as a kid;modern kit is nicely done but fiddly around the intakes and panel lines are a little deep

Paint is Tamiya Gloss Red acrylic airbrushed on then sealed with Tamiya Gloss after the decals had been applied

Stand is a coffee lid with a piece of acrylic rod (bent over a candle) hot glued in a hole drilled in the top. Some coins were hot glued inside to add weight to the stand.

Bit scrappy in places but had fun building it
