Sorry to report, the Gladiator was shot down….
August 10, 2014 in Aviation
Some of you might remember I was building a 1/32 Sea Gladiator for the Nats, thanks to all who wished me well but ’twas not to be. The competition was pretty intense, including several Wingnut Wings thingies. (That’s my excuse, and I’m sticking to it). But at least it got built, without the impetus of the deadline, it would still be in the closet, and I am very happy with it.
Surprisingly, my 1/32 Fiat G-50 also in 1/32, did bring in a second place award, despite the flaws I knew all about. One never knows. Also, the recently posted here Mad Max Police Interceptor brung a third. So not so shabby.
It was a great show, had a great time, and thanks again guys. I am posting pics here if you’re interested.
