Are there meant to be stickers in this set as my son has not got any in his and the instructions refer to decals. Thanks?

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got this kit a bit ago to to make a red arrows now and then diorama. I still haven't got the hawk but the gnat I've got is great. It went together really well, just a bit of trouble with the noes undercarriage but it doesn't look wrong if you give it a quick glance. The only thing is the gloss 19 it doesn't go on really well but i had some enamel of that colour in stock so i fixed it with that. The tail decals were a bit of a fiddle and so were the ejector seat decals. I like the option of having the extra gas tanks on the wings. i put them to but i would recommend pre painting them and putting them on after the model is painted and the under wing decals have been put on. on the whole it is a great kit so 5 out of 5 for airfix...

Some bits did not fit

I had to use my pen knife to help make bits fit but it looked good other wise.

RAF Red Arrows Gnat Starter Set 1:72

Great new tool compared to the old Gnat I had before, the only problem was the two fuselage halves didn't fit together too well so I had to use some filler. Other than that a great first Red arrows kit!
