Classic Airframes 1/48 Fairey Gannet
A limited run kit with resin parts is a sure sign of ample dry fitting. Classic Airframes' Gannet is no exception. Yet. I like the looks of this big and rugged naval aircraft. The mold of plastic parts is basic. To add insult, the kit price was sky high. I waited several years until the opportunity to buy the two kits came. In case you wonder, it was Hannants re-issue auctioned in Ebay after the initial rush.
Fortunately, the limited number of parts allows you to concentrate on cutting the resin blocks and adding the balance weight. You will need almost more space than what the front fuselage cavities offer.
The complex wing fold mechanism is represented by the Airwaves PE set. Unfortunately, it is the only game in town. Not only that the detailing is limited, but also the wing profile is far bigger than the model's wing. Nonetheless, when all put together, the unique aircraft type and wing fold mechanism distract from the imperfections in the build.
