Airfix 1/72 Red Arrows Gnat Starter Set
Model Number: A55105
The Airfix Red Arrows Gnat Starter Set in 1/72 scale from the Starter Set range accurately recreates the real life aircraft flown by the famous Royal Air Force aerobatic display team.
This plastic aircraft kit comes with all the paint and glue required to complete the model.
For this model we recommend using paints from the following ranges.
We also highly recommend the following ranges for tools and accessories.
The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team (RAFAT), the formal name of the Red Arrows, began life at RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire in 1965. Initially there were seven display pilots and ten Gnat jet trainers. The name Red Arrows was chosen to combine the appeal and expertise of two earlier teams, the Black Arrows and the Red Pelicans.

Bought 2 of these as birthday presents for young modelers Terrific starter kit to get them interested in model building . Easy to follow instructions and easy to build . Beautiful little kit .

Sound though with flaws
Reliable airfix model. Good detailing and some skill required, particularly wheel assembly and engine intakes. There are some issues: 1. wing tanks included but not covered in instructions, presumably an optional extra in the non-Red Arrow version; 2. red paint included is more pink than red. I used an alternative paint.
