Eduard 1/48 Limited edition Gladiator

Recommended Posts

I'm planning a 1/48 Gladiator Mk II based on the Eduard ex Roden edtion.

The decal sheet gives markings for N2308 615 Squadron, Merville, France 1939. However I have my doubts that the instructions which show the squadron code being on the starboard side as T - KW.  I think it was KW - T?

I've found a photograph which seems to bear out my doubts.

Also what is the line on the propeller about a third of the way in from the tip?

Just a tip when building the Roden Gladiator.....Be very careful with the instrument panel....if you build the kit as per the instructions, the fuselage halves WON'T close, for the IP is too wide for the inner spacing.

Ask me why I know it.....:swear:

Best regards

Thanks for the reminder, a number of reviewers have made the same observation.

If I were you I'd be following the photograph - you can't get a better reference than that - and putting the squadron codes aft of the roundel on the starboard side. We all know how accurate kit instructions can be sometimes!

Thanks for all of the input I'm going to proceed as per the photograph i.e. squadron codes aft of the roundel on the starboard side .

Thanks to all
