Ten years of design and development led to the adoption of the Fairey Gannet, a highly successful three-man aircraft built around a most unusual engine. The Armstrong-Siddeley Double Mamba coupled turboprop engine boasted two independent power sections driving separate propellers. Additionally.

Fully ten years after the initial specification, the Fairey Gannet reached the active fleet, in service with HMS Illustrious, HMS Ark Royal and HMS Eagle. Eventually, 255 of the up-rated version (Gannet AS Mk4) satisfied the Fleet. Air Arms' need to replace aging Fireflies and Avengers. Wing Span: 54ft. 4in. Length: 43ft. Height: 13ft. 8.5in.

    Having worked on the real thing this kit is very accurate. I like the fact that there are conversion kits available to convert this kit into a folding version or an AEW3. As this model has been around for a while the conversion kits are hard to come by, but well worth the search for the serious hobbyist.
