Second Sino-Japanese War...1/48 Gloster Gladiator Mk.I Chinese Airforce

Recommended Posts

#5/2019

And my dad finished another one.
Initially he wanted to build a shiny pre-war RAF bird, but due to some (self-inflicted) setbacks it became a green Chinese one in the end.
Merit (Trumpeter) kit, Fine Molds seatbelts, rigging with elastic thread.

In October 1937 the Chinese ordered 36 Gladiator Mk.Is which then were used in the war against Japan. At the end of August 1938 most of the Gladiators had been lost or were unserviceable due to combat damage.

Looks fantastic! Nice to see one of these in a different scheme than RAF

Nicely done. I've got the Eduard re-pop of the Roden kit on the go, the plan is to do it in a Latvian scheme. Building it is proving to be character building. 😞

Thank you! Yes, Roden is always a challenge 💪

Very nice Gladiator.

I especially like the way the collector ring colour varies with the angle and light - your dad got that spot on, imho.
