What did they call the formation team, the Red Darts perhaps?  ;D

Love the look of it, excellent work Jim.  :thumbsup: :bow:

So, what if the Sea Gnat did go into production, and who would have operated it?

Simple: The Navy!



OK Rattie,

I have been having a bit of a think about that, and the answer is definitely "not a cat's hope in He11".

Reasons :

The photo shows a T2.
The other version of the Special Hobby kit gives markings for one of the aircraft in the film, see here:





That was an Ajeet by the way not a real Gnat.

Both the T2 and the Ajeet that appeared in the film are therefore REAL WORLD, and are therefore not eligible here.


Jim

Jim, you surely realize that any connection between Carlos Estevez, ah,  I mean, Charlie Sheen & "REAL WORLD" are..
.. purely coincidental.. & do not represent anything else but a  'whiff' of 'snow' ( actually, more of a 'blizzard', but - you get the drift)..
