Airfix - JU87 / Gloster Gladiator Dog Fight Double Gift Set - 1:72 (A50179)

Airfix - JU87 / Gloster Gladiator Dog Fight Double Gift Set - 1:72 (A50179)

 

The Gloster Gladiator represented the pinnacle of biplane fighter design, but despite its undoubted pedigree, it was almost obsolete as soon as it entered RAF service. With both the Hurricane and Spitfire already in development, RAF Gladiator Squadrons saw little service with home based units during WWII. Two Squadrons of Gladiators did take part in the Battle of France, where they managed to inflict surprisingly heavy losses on superior German aircraft types.
During the early air engagements of the Second World War, RAF Gloster Gladiators were thrust into battle against significantly superior Axis forces. In the hands of an experienced pilot, the Gladiator was easily capable of destroying most German aircraft types, with the exception of the feared Messereschmitt Bf 109. The Ju87 Stuka proved to be particularly vulnerable to fighter attack and if a Gladiator could catch a Stuka as it pulled out of its dive-bombing attack, the Gladiator pilot would be hopeful of gaining an easy victory.
