ICM's Gloster Gladiator is a very nice kit but the upper centre aileron hinge is overly wide.

AIMS has released a simple correction for this error.

 

 

The set comprise a resin replacement pair of upper ailerons with the correct narrow recessed for the centre hinges.

Casting quality is perfect and the fabric surface texture matches that of the plastic kit parts.

 

 

The cover sheet notes that you will have to modify the upper wing hinge to match the resin part's recess.

Thanks to AIMS for the sample
