  1. Fantastic result out of the challenging Classic Airframes kit, Martin!

  2. I love what you accomplished here. Can you post some comments about how easy/ difficult this build was, and which paints you used.

  3. Great looking Gannet, Martin @Matra
    A not so often seen model.

  4. Wow, great work there Martin

  5. Looks awesome, @Matra. This is a large model, and I know this particular kit can be a challenge. Well done.

  6. Nice work on this one. That kit is getting scarce.

  7. So many cool aircraft came out in the 50s and 60s, many doing fantastic service even if they never had the glamour as the jet fighters. The Gannet always was a fav of mine, not least because it looks so...ugly. Seems like it was fairly agile and really built for the mission. Nice model, love the colours.

  8. Great job! Are running low on the Model Masters paint? @Matra
