Full Description

This aeroplane is designed to be powered by two-stroke or four-stroke engines, but experienced modellers should be able to convert it to electric power (details not supplied, so please send us information if you make a successful EP version!) It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying. The model is of conventional all-wood construction but a moulded plastic cockpit canopy, engine cowling and metal spinner are available. A laser-cut wood pack and additional wood pack are also available.

The Full Size: The Gloster Gladiator entered service with the RAF in 1937 and was both the last biplane fighter and the first with an enclosed cockpit. It was almost immediately made obsolete by the much faster monoplane fighters being developed by Britain and Germany but gave valuable service in a number of peripheral actions where the opposition was weaker. It was also sold to a number of overseas air forces, so there are lots of different colour schemes and markings to choose from when painting your Gladiator model!

What’s in an Additional Wood Pack? – Our Additional Wood Packs contain MOST of the necessary sheet and strip wood needed to complete a model being built from a Sarik Hobbies plan and using the associated laser cut wood pack, if available. We stock a wide range of balsa, ply and spruce in popular sheet and strip sizes but even so we cannot guarantee to be able to supply all the wood necessary to complete each model. So some additional purchases may be required from other modelling wood stockists if not available from Sarik Hobbies. Our Additional Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and spruce wood in the stock sizes as used by our suppliers and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheet.
