Airfix’s 1/72nd Folland Gnat T.1 is a new tooled kit, which Tim Hatton reviewed here
, has replaced the original release that has been doing the rounds since 1964. Pavla have released a vac form canopy for the newer release.
In the bag
The clear bag holds 1 vac form canopy. The canopy is blemish free and thinner then the kit offering.
The Airfix canopy although pretty clear does have a little distortion due to the thickness of the plastic, so Pavla’s replacement does alleviate that problem.
The vac form canopy is in one piece and will need to be cut out of the moulding, and trimmed to size, which will need to be done with care as only one canopy is supplied.
