AIMS has released a photo-etched landing flap set for ICM's new 1/32 scale Gloster Gladiator.

The set comprises one photo-etched fret and illustrated instructions on a single-sided A5 sheet.

 

 

The photo-etched fret contains the lower landing flaps, the upper flap well, supports and other detail parts. You will need to source a 0.8mm x 44mm plastic or metal rod for the hinge on each side.

 

 

The instructions are illustrated with two museum photos of open flap bays and include reference to the part numbers.

There are lots of teeny weeny detail parts in this comprehensive flap bay set, making it best suited to experienced modellers.

This is a nice update to ICM's 1/32 scale Gladiator and a nice way to customise your kit.

Thanks to AIMS for the sample
