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 [...]
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; [...]
Hi guys! This is the Gloster Meteor Mk4 Fuerza Aérea Argentina. Represented as it was on March 1959, from the Grupo 2 de Caza Interceptora.

Here’s my version of the Airfix Gloster Meteor F. 8. Much has been written about this kit so I won’t bore you with more of the same. This makes kit number four for the year.
In his "On This Day" blog, David has recently shown a picture of a Gloster Typhoon, taken at Gloster Factory in 1944. Having a special remembrance to this place, I thought I could show some of my pictures from a UK [...]
