Airfix A02052 Gloster Gladiator Mk.I 1/72
Airfix Model Kit
The Gloster Gladiator occupies an important place within history
of the RAF. The last of the RAF’s biplane fighters, the Gladiator had
some modern features, such as an enclosed cockpit, a first for a RAF
fighter, as well as an armament of four machine guns. Still in service
at the outbreak of war, the Gladiator proved to be a capable biplane
fighter, but was outclassed against modern monoplane opposition.
The mount of some of the RAF’s most famous pilots, such as Pat
Pattle and Roald Dahl, preserved Gladiators can still be seen flying
today at Duxford and Old Warden air displays.
