First completed kit in months: Airfix 1:72 Gloster Gladiator

Recommended Posts

This was meant to be a quick out of the box build - which then sat on my bench for months. With the start of the holidays I managed to get it finished - my first completed kit since February 🥺 Completed straight from the box with the kit decals, brush painted with Tamiya acrylics. Minimal weathering as I gather they kept these aircraft very clean in the 1930’s. Thanks for looking.

Lovely neat looking aircraft. Well done. Worth the wait for us.

I wasn’t aware of that Steve....and now I need one and it’s been superceded 😩

you don’t have a spare do you?😂


No, sorry Tania, though I think from memory the Matchbox Gladiator had the same markings, you'd be welcome to those if I can find them, from the builds in the MB group build a year or so back, the decals seem to work ok after all this time with sensible precautions.
