Fairey Gannet

 Header intro

When i bpught this kit i planned to have it in its full wing-fold-glory (who can resist the unique+weird wing fold mechanism) on this aircraft. But when i have it in my hand, i realized i need to invest on some resin etc. As i'm not really a fan of resin, so i just forget the "awesome" idea and just go with an OOB build.

The box-art is as below (from internet)

Header overview

1/72 Trumpeter British "Gannet" AS.MK 1/4

The build went on smoothly for an OOB build. I made a critical error (in my view) of not properly measure the downward camera (at the center of the fuselage) to realized that it is longer than the landing gear. Thus if look very closely will be able to see the camera actually supporting the model now. This is entirely my bad for not properly inspect the parts

Very minor weathering was applied to the model, as i loved a clean looking aircraft.
