Model Background

Air forces of the Royal Navy at the beginning of World War II consisted of 20 squadrons with a total of 232 aircraft. The tasks of naval aviation included reconnaissance, spotting for battleships, offensive operations against enemy warships and merchant vessels, and protection against submarines and enemy aircraft. Squadrons typically had 9-12 aircraft of the same type, although sometimes their composition was mixed. A notable feature of British naval aviation before World War II was the significant number of biplane aircraft. This was due to their superior flying characteristics for deck landings in open seas. The single-seat biplane fighter, Gloster Sea Gladiator, was produced from 1938 and was a naval version of the land-based Gladiator fighter. The deck variant differed from the land-based one with a reinforced lower wing, modified equipment, a tailhook for landing, and a life raft housed beneath the fuselage. Between December 1938 and February 1939, 60 Gloster Sea Gladiators were produced, with an additional 38 aircraft obtained by converting land-based Gladiator Mk.II fighters.

Understanding Scale

The scale of a model is its size as a proportion to the real-life item. For instance, a 1:18 scale model means that every 1 unit of measurement on the model equals 18 units on the real item. If you divide the real item's size by 18, you'd get the size of the 1:18 model. Please note that models can vary slightly in size, as not all real-life items, like cars or planes, have the same dimensions.
