Again a biplane left my workbench.  The base kit was the Eduard / Roden Gloster Sea Gladiator, built OOB.

Unfortunately the quality of the re-issue is not the best, and contrary to the original kit Roden much rework necessary.  Real problems with the fit there was at the pulpit.

Many ridges and shape offset were a real shortcoming and have the fun bit troubled.

Bracing completely sec with EZ Line and Tamiya Glue (For me the best combination for tension).

The painting was done with Model Master paints.
