Royal Navy "Suez Crisis" 

Bought this kit due to the wing-fold mechanism during when i got bitten by the "wing-fold-bug". 

During this period, all the kit i bough would have a wing-fold capabilities Out-of-the-box.

Such kit includes the Wyvern and the Gannet (with a very unique and funky looking wing fold)

The build again was a straight-forward venture with a very minimal usage of putty.

If looking through my WIP, might notice that my initial attempt to spray the campaign stripes failed miserabily and in the end end-up using the supplied decal instead.

Weathering was minimal as i like my plane clean.
