Gloster Gauntlet II


Recommended Posts

Thanks Iain, she’s not a natural beauty, not sleek and streamlined even, but she has so much charisma! I hope calling the Gauntlet a “she” doesn’t offend any sensitive snowflakes…..I’m sure we’re all too grounded for that sort of c**p! :D

I can't think of a kit that has given me more satisfaction than Silver Wings Gauntlet:

Build thread and lots of lovely period photos:


My thanks to all those who helped me along the way, it certainly wasn't a straightforward build and it had its "moments" but the end result is satisfying.

Beauty of a build, Max!

May I post it on the website?

Photorealism at its best:bow::bow::bow:

Please share with us: how did you do the sky? :hmmm:

Thank you old chum, the sky is just as it was.  I had been waiting for nearly a fortnight for the right light conditions so "carpe diem"!  The HDR process helped to define and sharpen the lighting slightly.


Buy one, get one free:

Never heard of the Gauntlet before! What a pretty plane! Great rigging and decals. 

Thank you, she’s just one of many beautiful planes produced during the golden era of the 1930s, there were a few ugly sisters too though!
