The Gnat was an Advanced trainer with a secondary light fighter role. It served as the RAF's advanced trainer from 1959 to 1979 when it was replaced by the BAe Hawk. During that time it was used by the Red Arrows as their display aircraft. Gnat's were used with some success as a fighter by the Indian Air Force, often getting the better of the F-86 Sabre in dogfights. The FR.1 had nose mounted cameras for the reconnaisance role.

Special Hobby is a Czech based manufacturer and this is their 1/72 Gnat kit.  This is an injection moulded plastic kit with a detail level that matches and possibly surpasses the Airfix Gnat. As a bonus this kit comes with different types of rocket pods and also drop tanks and individual rockets along with several different types of spare nosecones.

Markings are provided for 2 Finnish aircraft.
