1/32 Scale Silver Wings Gloster Gladiator Mk 2, SAAF, 1940
October 19, 2016 in Aviation
This is a kit that I have wanted to build for a long time, I want to try and build as many 1/32 SAAF Aircraft as I can, so this Gladiator was one kit that I had to have, I was busy building the Vampire T Mk 55 when this kit arrived, and try as I may, I could not resist starting the build.
What an amazing resin kit, one of the best I have built ( this is the second one), the guys from Silver Wings really know what they are doing.
The only extra bits I used were Gas Path turn buckles, and EZ Line.
The Sutton Harness’s were scratch built using lead strip.
I hope you all enjoy the pictures, I have tried to take better pictures this time (My Daughter helped)
This particular Gladiator was flown by Capt B.J.L ”Piggy” Boyle, 1 Squadron, Sudan, 1940.
