IT at home

January has been all about the Internet and the computer. A new wireless network with mesh router had to come, the Mac finally needed a current operating system and my various websites a new host.

This is now done and I can return to my other hobbies.

AIRFIX Gloster Gladiator, 1:72

over the Christmas holidays, I finished a scale model of a Gloster Gladiator. It is a new AIRFIX kit in 1:72. Inspired by a picture of Aviation artist Mark Postlethwaite "Oslo Defender" I finally found the right accessories and above all the right decals to do this particular model.

This Gloster Gladiator has been involved in the first dogfight during operation „Weserübung“. The German Wehrmacht raid on Norway. Sersjant Kristian Fredrik Schye scored the first aerial victory over a Bf 110 on April 9, 1940 near Oslo. There are a few photos of the model on the Flickr album.
