Airfix Swedish Volunteer Gloster Gladiator Mk.I in 1/72 Scale

Here is a Gloster Gladiator Mk. I of Flygflottilj 19 (Swedish Voluntary Air Force) at Kemi, Northern Finland, 1940.  The ski boxing also contains all the parts needed for wheeled versions, and both two- and three-bladed props.  The cowl assembly was a bit fiddly, and I had to fill gaps there on my build.  Removing the seams while preserving the details is a challenge.  The second issue is one I’ve found on all the new Airfix kits I’ve built so far – the raised canopy framing is far overscale and detracts from what are otherwise outstanding kits.  I filed the frames off of mine and used them as masters for plunge molded replacements.
