Book Cover

The Top Drawings series specializes in line drawings of a given subject in each booklet. The 94th installment in this series is devoted to the Gloster Gladiator or J8 as was known in Swedish service.

This booklet has line drawings (front, back, left, right, top, bottom, plus fuselage contours) for the Gloster Gladiator Mk I, MkII, Sea Gladiator, Mk II Meteo, Mk I Trop, J-8, plus Norwegian and Finnish ski types for the Mk I.

In addition to the B&W line drawings, you also get 10 color profiles, in some cases with multiple views (left side, right side, etc.) of the same aircraft. Markings are for British and Finnish service.

The booklet also includes a brief description on the overall history of the aircraft and each line drawing has an explanation as to what was modified from the previous block series. Scale of the drawings is 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32, in a pull-out sheet.

If you are looking for detailed drawings of the Gladiator, this book is the answer.

Highly recommended.

I would like to thank Casemate Publishers and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
