A British-built biplane fighter, introduced in the 1930's and used by the RAF during the early days of WWII. It fought against stronger foes during the early days of the WW2, but it acquitted itself reasonably well in combat.
This is a model of the aircraft flown by Dag Krohn of the Norwegian Fighter Wing (Jagevingen). On 9 April 1940, the first day of the invasion of Norway, the Jagevingen pilots managed to shoot down five German aircraft: two Messerschmitt Bf 110 fighters, two He 111 bombers and one Fallschirmjäger-laden Ju 52 transport. Flying the Gladiator n.423 that day, Lieutenant Krohn scored two victories and reported to have damaged an enemy bomber.
