Eagle Configuration and Air Group
The Fujimi kit represents Eagle as fitted after her 1954-55 refit (with minor inaccuracies). After her major modernisation which began in 1959 she looked very different. Her air group comprised Gannet AS (not Gannet AEW), Seahawk, Wyvern and Skyraider AEW aircraft, plus (from 1956) Sea Venoms. The last Wyvern squadron disbanded in April 1958. Sadly only the Gannets are provided by Fujimi!
I know this is an old kit, but can someone suggest the era depicted by the model, and what would have been a typical air group for that time.
