Hello Jo Walton,
I`m trying attach my painting of the Gloster VI. It is in acrylic. The geometry of the aircraft is correct as it is enlarged from a photograph. The picture is 70 x 38cm in frame. If you want it, I propose the price of Euro220 or £200 plus postage.The colour scheme is based on descriptions relating to the `Golden Arrow`. Other schemes were used on the two aircraft built. Regards, Mike

Please send me your email and I`ll send you the photo of my painting

Hi Mike, I know this is a very old post so not likely to work, but I am trying to track down a painting of a Gloster VI! Jo Walton

In the end, they weren't up to scratch and were used only as 'reserves, hacks and backup trainers';

Gloster V I distinguishing features
wing roots slender, three bank Napier Lion engine not Rolls Royce V 12
vertical fin and rudder not as tall as S6 - S6A -S6B
I am looking for color pictures (paintings)

Yep, I have a shot of this in the water with handling crew. Always thought it was a Supermarine but i guess not.

"are you aware......?" and is 25ft 12in equal to 26ft!

Does anyone have ANY interior info or drawings on either the VI or IV??


David Cooper, e-mail, 21.12.2008 18:16

I am very interested in the Gloster VI color schemes. Are there color prints of both the Old Gold, and Cambridge Blue/Old Gold schemes?


Brian O'Loughlin, e-mail, 17.12.2008 17:48

Are there any decent blueprints available of this aircraft? I think its one of the most beautiful ever and would like to build a model someday. I'd like to see the painting too.

I have now painted a picture of the Gloster VI in flight. email me for a copy

This aircraft had thicker wings at 2/3 span than at roots, which was claimed to improve the low speed handling. Failure of the fuel supply in turns prevented racing use, but world speed record set 9th Sept 1929 of 336mph.

The top photo on this article seems to show a Supermarine S-6B, not a Gloster VI

Two aircraft, belonging to High Speed Flight of RAF, were built as potential Schneider Trophy contestants in the 1929 event. They were registered N249 & N250 by RAF. In the end, they weren't up to scratch and were used only as 'reserves, hacks and backup trainers';

Are you aware that the picture you have for the Gloster VI is in fact a Supermarine racer instead?
