HAFS Gladiator

This is a build of the Wave release of the HAFS Gladiator. Built mostly OOB with a few add ons.

 

 

The model was weathered with enamels, oil paints and pigments.

 

 


The build was pretty easy. The fit is good with no real alignment or fit issues. It required a little putty to smooth up the seams on the nose/cockpit section but that's too be expected on such complex shapes.

 

I played around with some stowage I had left over from the Hexamodel 223 build.

 

The model was hand painted with Tamiya and Gunze paints thinned with Tamiya laq. thinner. Some of the brush marks were sanded out with 2000 grit and a top coat was applied from Vallejo Acrylics. The stowage basket was made from brass strip. I need to apply markings and start weathering next.
