Correct antenna for a Gloster Gladiator, Mk. I


Recommended Posts

Good morning,

I am about to finish the Gladiator from Airfix, and I'm a bit stuck about the correct antenna. The airplane will be K8027 from 87 squadron (with the blue fin, wheel discs and stabilizer, but silver hump). I have seen cases of Mk I where the antenna was a straight line from the fin to the middle of the upper wing, and connected to the radio by a cable though the hump behind the cockpit. On other versions, I have seen a Y-shaped antenna, which was attached on the fin and two wing points just close to the aileron inner edges. So, both seem to exist, but has anyone a hint on which version would be correct for a interwar-Gladiator?


Thanks and have a nice weekend!
