Gloster Gladiator Mk I Silver Wings 32-008

Recommended Posts

Hello to everybody.

Thank you Ron and Phil for the nice commentes and for the pictures.

As I have not much time left for modelling for the moment, this is just a little UP!

I almost finished the exhaust. This is how they are for the moment:

I also painted the interior of the cover in H58 from Gunze, with a little pre shading. You don't see it very well here.

I also give a first coat on the dashboard:

Further on the engine. I put the ignition on it, using copper wire, and painted the engine semi gloss:

I then put a really light wash on it. When dry, I dry brushed the engine with oilpaints and finished with really light oil with Rose powder:

That's all for the moment, sorry, but I'm not one of the fastest....

Critics and comments are always welcome, of course!

Cheers,

Jamme

Very nice, as usual!

 

About the engine...the exhausts are the two pins on the front of each cylinder (which you have cut) connecting to the collector ring at the front of the cowling, not the Y shaped pipes on the back.

Nice engine there Jamme. Does it fit inside the cowels?I do like the extra details you fixed, they relly pops up when painted.

Looks great. I would suggest picking out all your nice bolts and nuts in a silvery gold color. Just a suggestion that would be more toward artistic opinion than historical fact (I think :shrug: ). It would look good?

Hello Everybody.

Thank you Kagemusha, Larsa and Ron for looking and for the nice comments.

 

For Larsa:

Yes the engine fits in the cowl. You don't have that many space, but it fits.

 

For Ron:

I already picked the Bolts and nuts out in silver, as I will put a last wash with Burnt Umber / Brown when the engine is dry.

I did made a picture but this will be with the next UP

 

Thank you once again.

Cheers,

Jamme

Hello to everybody.

I have not much time for modelling for the moment, but I had enough time to make a little UP!

So i worked a little bit further on the engine.

I remade the exhaust, in lead wire, placed them on the cylinders, painted them black and "rusted" them a bit.

I also paintesd the bolts silver.

Pictures:

It now needs a light Burnt sienna wash.

I also worked on the front crown.

"rusted" it, made holes to fit the exhaust.

Here is a picture:

I made a dryfit of everything together and here are the pics.

That's all for the moments.

What do you think about it?

Comments, critics and questions always welcome!

Cheers,

Jamme
