  1. Silver Wings have recently confirmed that the next kit in their Interwar series of aircraft will be a Gloster Gauntlet. Anticipated December release date. Happy Christmas!
  2. Great to see a RATG Hurricane modelled (I have a 1/32 one planned), she looks gorgeous in the silver livery, though in truth it was a quick re-spray over the previous camo. Lovely build CC, many congratulations!
  3. Agree 100% with previous comments, ICM’s Gladiator was one of the most enjoyable kits that I’ve built in a long while. I’m contemplating getting another and converting it to a Gauntlet, an interesting challenge. You’ve made a very good job of yours Dave, many congratulations. Max
  4. There are some builds of the Dragon Bf110 on Large Scale Planes that are worth looking at and will help avoid some of the potential pitfalls in the terrible instructions! Beautiful kit, as Carl said it goes together pretty well.
  5. Most definitely of interest Chris, you're doing a stellar job in my opinion. I get the impression that this forum is more about 1/72 and 1/48 models so 1/32 is a poor relation....others may think differently of course.
  6. The pictures have gone AWOL, or is it my device?
  7. Yep, Bob’s Buckles micro-tubing is my go-to representation of turnbuckles Chris, not strictly accurate of course unlike the Gaspatch ones, but I have found them impossible to use. I’d strongly recommend just resting the dampers on the rigging, it looks fine on the model! Good luck which ever you choose to do.
  8. Looks very good Chris, well done. Are you going to add the "dampers" in the "V" of the rigging, I just used a piece of thin plastic rod roughly rounded at each end when I did my Gladiator. Each one just rests on the rigging.
  9. I admire your tenacity Chris, the old British bulldog spirit! I still have my (uncompleted) Tiger Moth too but with the Silver Wings kits and rumours of ones from Special Hobby and ICM all in 1/32 scale in the pipeline I don’t think it’ll see the light of day again other than as a practice mule. Keep going with yours, it looks splendid!
  10. Yes Paul, my canopy is yellowed too. I've been given a spare Trumpeter one which I may use if I have to, opened up the difference in width shouldn't be too obvious, though I'm hoping a friend may mould a new one for me, watch this space - I'll keep you informed if he's open to doing a couple. I've used the Aires wheel wells (they don't fit without lots of work), cockpit (ok but needs lots of fiddling) and exhausts (easy fit). Max
  11. I’m building the Echelon Lightning F6 right now, just got her on her wheels, a really fun and splendid “kit”. At pretty much the same stage is an Airfix 1/48 F2A, very simple but effective.
  12. Thank you both. I know it doesn’t suit everybody but I find 1/32 scale perfect for my love of detailing and my old eyes! My future project is to turn one of these into a Gauntlet.
  13. Here Michael https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/82902-gloster-gladiatorfinished/
  14. Let's hope Dora Wings do a 1/32 scale version of the kit now that John has helped them so much. Their Dewoitine D500 looks very tasty in that scale.
