These new tool Airfix kits are great...Very detailed!
This one is painted in the default kit colours of the Shuttleworth Collection aircraft (I saw the real thing in action in September), originally it may have been in 'Cobber Kain's colours. Lots of stenciling & inspection panels in the decals.
Kit comes with detailed rigging instructions

The colours on the Shuttleworth Gladiator at the moment, and on this kit, are for a No. 73 Squadron RAF aircraft that was not only flown by Edgar "Cobber" Kain regularly, but also by his kiwi Flight Commander and friend, Dereck "Bill" Kain (who went on to become a Wing Commander, and later lived here in Cambridge).
Very nicely done; thanks for sharing with us. As I haven't seen the kit in its latest upgrade, can anyone tell me if Airfix have provided the necessary 'bits' (ie, a 3-bladed propeller etc.) to enable a WW II-era 'combat' Glad' to be modelled? Thanks.
