GLOSTER GLADIATOR PROGRESS

Post by Molyned » 25 Nov 2018, 13:33

I'm still working on my offering of the Gladiator MK1. So here's a shot of the w.i.p. cockpit interior. -

Still plenty to do including the all-important aircraft.cfg work. And no, I don't know why the boost gauge was so big. :S
At this stage in its career it had not been fitted with the standard RAF basic six instruments layout. This was introduced not long afterwards on the MK2 version together with a 3-bladed prop.
Cheers :cheers:

Looking very nice Dave, Boost gauges seemed to be big at that time, my K2 Vega Gull with a VP prop had one of similar size!

Thanks for the update, Dave!
Very recognisable instruments, even though they're in the "wrong" places! ;)
Excellent work :welldone:
