I generally hate photo-etch.  However, I love the Gladiator and am a huge fan of SBS, the eastern European model company.  So, this is one my list to acquire.

Time:  10:30 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. (Time: 1.5 hrs)

Yearly total: 29.54 hrs

I am filling in a few posts that I didn’t get posted when I modeled.  I’ll be posting them over the next few days.

I worked on the SBS Gladiator engine.  It is as awesome a piece of aftermarket resin that I’ve ever come across.  I also did some work on the “Battle of the Barristers” Hurricane.  This is a very nice kit, but Airfix put fabric effect where the panels were actually metal.  Therefore, I had to do some scraping and sanding and then coating the area with Mr. Surfacer 1500 black.

Airfix has released a new Gladiator in 72nd scale.  It is awesome.  Here is a fantastic build.
