    Battle Of Malta - SPIT NEXT! 440458_zps72bf98e8

    I'm setting my mind to start the Gladiator. Now the kit come with a two-bladed prop..... Malta Glosters had a three-bladed prop... right?  What am I going to do??  Shocked   Can I get a three bladed prop from an aftermarket company? Or do I have to scratch it which will be a daunting task!!!??

    Progress on the Gloster.  I found a spinner with 3 Blades in my Spitfire sprue.... I guess it's good and I'm using it for the Gloster  Rolling Eyes

    I'm getting ready to start painting and I need HELP PLEASE!!!
    questions:

    1) Was the bottom underside half black and half gull grey? I don't think so ... so I'm painting all one colour if you agree.
    2) There are three colours... What were they please? A colour plate suggested Slate grey and Darker Slate Grey?

    Thanks

    Yes, Marco....... and for the Gloster as well in this thread I suppose.

    Mobile photos... so not very good quality

    Anyway... Gloster is slowly progressing. I need to fill that gap on the cowling and prepare it for painting.

    He111 H-6 Italeri do make one , and it's very good.. but you have to change the prop blades because He111 that came over Malta nearly  all were early H-6 with early blades...... cheers

    For a 72nd scale He-111H-6 get the Revell kit which is an excellent Hasegawa mould, should be the best in 72nd scale there is.
