You taking lessons from Dizzy, Fred? :unsure:


Not really.  I deliberately used mostly good fitting new era Airfix parts with minimal modification and avoided major PSR.  I have no idea how DIzz can produce his PSR heavy builds in such short time.
I find painting takes me most of the week and so aimed to get the building finished as quickly as possible.

Yes.  I'm thinking how a Hercules powered Gladiator monoplane with Hurricane rag-wings would look.

That's looking suitably awesome already, without ANY paint!
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

A bit like their F5/34 ? Which I've built the Magna kit of.

Can you flip the engine, so that teh exhaust is on the port side and the intake underneath?  I've a feeling it'll block the pilot view.

Gladiator based and on skis.  Did Farley ever sell any to the Finns?  It's looking extremely interesting, whoever owns it.  Another Zenrat Industries triumph.........and I'm waiting for the backstory on this one, too.

I could, that would put the exhaust high on the left and it would probably foul the rotor head supports.  But would Farley have considered such trivialities as pilot view?
TBH I made the intake too large when I scratched it up.  I would make a much more slimline version next time.

There is a clue as to the end user in the thread title.

Here's some paint.

Why not rotate the engine 90⁰ clockwise (pilot's view) & have the intake on the starboard side & the exhaust underneath? :unsure:

From what I can gather Farley wouldn't be overly concerned with things like "gravity-feed" or "oil drainage" or "fouling", either. :angel:



NB: No, I don't expect you to come to a screeching halt & redo what's been done. Mk.II, perchance? ;)

Thought of that.  The Gladiator fuselage is deeper than it is wide and if the engine is mounted centered as the original was then the Beaufighter's hedgehog exhaust fouls the planes belly.

A simple solution would be to move the intake to a position opposite the exhaust.  Just make new cooling flaps to fill the gap where the Beau one was.

All will be revealed.   :-X

I lost my morning session at the bench today due to being called into work early  :banghead:
However, I got another coat of white on when I got home.
Only upper surfaces will be white.  Sides and underside will be RLM shades.

I've painted the skis and rotors silver and added a coat of hairspray to them,  I've also painted the prop and the pilot and started painting a pair of missiles.

Decals will be from my stash and will tie in with the movie's subject and with three previous builds.   ;)
