Gloster Sea Gladiator

by Hubert Ortinger


Gloster Sea Gladiator


Roden's 1/48 scale Sea Gladiator is available online from Squadron




Here are some images of my Roden 1/48 scale Sea Gladiator.

When Italy went to war on 1 September1939 there were only a couple of Gladiators for use on Malta. For the next month they were Malta's only hope against the Reggie Aeronautica. This period of war becomes a example for heroic and sacrifice and makes the Gladiator as famous as the Spitfire and Hurricane.



One of these unofficial trio called "Faith", "Hope" and "Charity" was N5519/R flown by Flt. Lt. George Burgess.

I used Eduard photo-etched accessories to enhance Roden's 1/48 scale Sea Gladiators
