Gloster Gladiator.....finished :)

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I saw this model last night in the flesh and its a beauty!  Max's rigging and painting is first class, a nice touch being the home made markings from masks he made on his Silhouette cutter.  I was well impressed.

 

Regards,

Thank you all for your very kind comments! ICM are to be applauded for having produced such a beautifully buildable kit, the fact that it only took me a month to get from “go to whoa” is testament to how well thought out the kit is. Hopefully it will encourage modellers to have a stab at the black art of rigging, and believe me I’m still learning!

That was a fantastic journey you took us on Max, a pleasure to follow from start to finish and as

most others already said - a stunner :bow:

Thanks chaps! :blush:  It was worth taking a few liberties with 56 squadron’s eye catching markings, silver is lovely but those red and white chequers are something else.  When my father was a trainee pilot in S Rhodesia in 1943 there were Tiger Moths buzzing all over the sky from several neighbouring EFTSs. So it was decided to paint a chequerboard band on the rear fuselage of Dad’s EFTS (No. 28) because one of their mechanics was ex-56 squadron!
