Airfix 1/48th scale Folland Gnat T.1
I've waited 40 years for a mainstream kit of the Gnat in 1/48th scale, but with this new kit from Airfix, the wait was worth it ! A beautifully produced kit, with exceptionally fine surface detail, which really captures the 'look' of this attractive, diminutive jet trainer. The optional open or closed canopy mouldings are a bonus, ensuring a good fit in the 'closed' position, and the overall detail throughout is very well done, with even the ejector seats assembled from finely detailed parts, with optional seat-backs for use with, or without, the pilot figures. Yes, there are one or two very minor inaccuracies on the instrument panels, but these are easily rectified if desired, especially if the instrument decals are not used, and they can hardly be noticed anyway, especially with the canopy closed. This is possibly the best 1/48th scale kit to date from Airfix, and it's good to see the company back at the forefront of model production, whilst maintaining, by today's standards, reasonable prices - something certain other manufacturers should seriously consider reviewing ! Very well done, and many thanks Airfix !
