Fairey must have made ugly aircraft their speciality.

I don't think France or India flew the Gannet Ulises. It served with the Royal Navy, Australian Navy, the German and Indonesian Navy. The French had the Breguet Alizé, which was a little more prettier than the Gannet!

The Alize always reminded me of a Gannet that could do with a few good meals! Neither of them the prettiest of craft, but the Gannet looked, well, steadfast and functional. Would love to do one in 48th scale, but Mrs WRK might rebel at the cost...
