    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    With the still growing threat from Soviet submarines in the 1950s, the Royal Navy urgently needed suitable anti-submarine aircraft. The development of the Fairey Gannet was delayed, and so a new version of the Firefly fighter and ground-attack aircraft was ordered. This new version, known as the AS Mk.7, was to be manned by a crew of three, because two operators were needed for the anti-sub missions. The aircraft was produced in two versions, for combat and also for training purposes. In comparison with the earlier versions, the AS Mk.7 was equipped with a larger wing and tailfin.

    The model consists of six sprues with grey plastic parts, one sprue of clear parts, you can find there also a optional vac-formed bulged canopy of the operators cockpit, undercarriage bay resin parts, exhausts and air intakes. The decals come with four options, all of them in post-war RN camouflage scheme. The machines depicted there are in fact only three, but one of them is in two various schemes known from contemporary photographs.
