In Progress: Eduard’s 1/48 Gloster Gladiator

This is the 1/48 Eduard kit, a rebox of the Roden kit. It’s my first Roden kit, and I’m not terribly impressed. I’d rank it higher than Special Hobby, but not quite up to the standard of Zvezda or Airfix. It should end up looking OK though.

The interior detail is OK, even with al the Eduard photoetch additions. If you build it, be prepared to wrestle mightily with getting the IP in place. In fact, all the interior parts take a little work to get nestled in the fuselage halves.

I am not looking forward to the wing alignment or rigging.

Still, I like the look of the Gladiator, so I’m pressing ahead.
