Gloster Gladiator

ICM 1/32 Gloster Gladiator II

A nice kit by ICM. I chose to build the Malta Gladiator "Charity." The fit of parts is good, but the attachment of fuselage halves requires test fitting. The cockpit does not give a realistic impression. Probably, because of the [...]

Gloster Gladiator 1:72a little Matchbox nostalgia

I started it about two years ago as a joy model (Matchbox Gloster Gladiator), then it ended up in a box, because the Alclad primer didn't want to bind, I still don't know why. Even after two years it was still a bit tacky (!). I had some [...]

Valeriy Grygorenko's 1/48 Gladiator Mk.I

Developed privately as the Gloster SS.37, the Gladiator was RAF's last biplane fighter. Already rendered obsolete by newer monoplane designs even as it was being introduced, it nevertheless saw action in almost all theaters during the [...]

1/32 ICM Gloster Gladiator Mk.1 (32040)

This is a beautiful kit in some ways and a bit of a pain in the wahoo in others. The surface detail is first rate as is the detail in the cockpit. I ran into a lot of trouble with the fit of the fuselage halves. Perhaps it was my fault; [...]

Gloster Gladiator Mk.I Hellenic Air Force 1938

It's an 1/48 Roden kit. It is a very good kit with the exelent fit, enough detail for anyone who wants to make a OOB. On the contrary, the decals had a big problem, since they were dissolved in water. Fortunately from the beginning I had [...]

Review: ICM 1/32 Gloster Gladiator MK.I Review

ICM's new 1/32 Gladiator

I usually play safe and wait for a kit to be reviewed before buying, but having seen reviews of (or purchased) some of ICM's recent kits, I thought I'd take the plunge. The kit is presented in the usual ICM top-opening box with its [...]

Roden 1/48 Gladiator I

By the early 1930s, it was apparent to any aircraft designer that the day of the biplane was over: the inherent drag of the layout could not be overcome by any increase in performance, and the layout prevented the airplane from carrying a [...]

South African Nationals 2018: Aircraft

These aircraft were just some of the many models entered in the 1/72 - 1/32 scale classes. My Westland Wyvern 1/48 Trumpeter was awarded the best in show for 1/48 scale and my Huey Hog Gunship 1/35 Academy MRC for Rotorcraft. Jets best in [...]

Blackadder Goes to War

Away from my normal focus on the BoB, I made this 1/48 Roden kit some time back after meeting the son of William Francis Blackadder, who joined the Auxiliary air Force in 1937 and in mid November 1939 flew with 607 (County of Durham) [...]
