Gloster Gladiator.....finished :)

Recommended Posts

The dampers are just sitting there Brian, I guess they should be "clamped" onto the bracing but too difficult at this scale.  Anyhow, apart from the aerial and a little bit of tidying up...........she's finished!! :frantic:  A few rough and ready pictures but RFI in a few days time.  I was looking at my Bulldog last night..........daunting! :o

Absolutely beautiful job Max, how did you manage to fill and paint the holes where the rigging went through the wings with the paintwork already completed, or did I miss that bit, I certainly cannot see any blemishes.

 

Cheers

Two methods Dennis; firstly I drilled the holes to slightly larger than the size of the micro tube so that it fitted quite snugly and secondly I carefully placed a precise amount of CA into the hole to hold the tube. They are not perfect by any means, I will be doing a little tidying up but it’s not too bad.

Cracking job on your Gladbag Max. She's very inspirational.

I like the second image with the pilot looking straight into the camera. He's a very well painted figure. 

Good job.

 

Cheers.
