Developed as a very small, lightweight, manoeuvrable fighter, in an era where fighter designs seemed to be on an inexorable rise in size, the Folland Gnat found fame and service with the RAF as a jet trainer. A tiny aircraft in comparison to its contemporaries, the Gnat was used as the mount for a number of aerobatic teams, from the Yellow Jacks to the Red Arrows. Serving until 1979, the Gnat proved to be a capable and much loved trainer. British swept-wing subsonic advanced jet trainer. Features engraved panel lines, well appointed tandem cockpits, 2 seated aircrew, detailed optional position undercarraige and wheel wells, weighted tires, wing tanks and 1-piece canopy. Decals and color painting reference for a single RAF aircraft: XP530 of the Central Flying School, RAf Rissington, Gloucestershire, England, 1964.
