Hi Guys.

Just to show you how far I have to go to get a working RS model, out of Jan's original model.

This is how it started off.



After I debugged the model. The mirrored sides a not present, as at this stage it's not worth making R/H side copies.



From the above model, I can start to rebuild Jan's Gladiator, but I'm not sure how it will turn out texture wise yet, as I have to rebuild the wings in a different way to the originals.

That's plainly a lot of work. I salute you for doing it.

And not only because I have a vested interest with Gladiators on both sides in Iraq.

First bit done the upper wing L/H.



The skin is thanks to a card model I found, and adapted. wink

Hi Guys.

I've rebuilt the centre section and hung the bits together to see how it looks. The tail needs remapping, but it's starting to look like a real restoration project. biggrin

Wings are nearly ready to mirror, to make the right side.

Still some mapping to finish off, but for now I'm going to get the motor section done, so the model will only need the gear adding.

Engine nearly finished, and now it's time to add the landing gear.
