Airfix A02063 Gloster J-A/Gladiator Mk.II 1/72
Airfix Model Kit
The Gloster Gladiator occupies an important place within the history
of the RAF. The last of the RAF’s biplane fighters, the Gladiator had
some modern features, such as enclosed cockpit, a first for a RAF
fighter, as well as an armament of four machine guns. Still in service
at the outbreak of WW2, the Gladiator proved to be a capable biplane
fighter, but was outclassed against the modern monoplane opposition.
Te mount of some of the RAF’s most famous pilots, such as Pat Pattle
and Ronald Dahl, preserved Gladiators can still be seen flying today
at Duxford and Old Warden air displays.
