Eswube, my dear friend, excellent work on those Gladiators! One small nitpick, though, SAAF roundels were blue, white and orange.
Oh, and dibs on Faith, Hope, and Charity!

@Gollevainen
Picture updated (refresh/F5 might be needed to see it).

@Nightunter
I know that SAAF roundel should have orange instead of red, but my sources were showing that particular one as very obviously red. Still, I've changed it to orange for the sake of historical clarity.

As for the Faith, Hope and Charity, the Sea Gladiator from Malta Fighter Flight (in the lower right corner, with "R" on fuselage) supposedly is supposedly Charity, although:

And here's more "Polish Wings"-related stuff.

Arguably the best French fighter in 1940, the Dewoitine D.520 was first flown in 1938, it begun entering service in January 1940. Although only relatively limited number of them were delivered before the fall of France, they had a significant combat career, beginning in the Air Force of the French Republic, through the Vichy France to Free French Forces in 1944-1945. Number of these aircraft were captured by Germans and used as fighter trainers, with certain amount taken over by Italy and Bulgaria which used them for air defence.
After the war 13 D.520's were converted to two-seat advanced trainers designated D.520DC. Other versions included D.520Z with new engine, development of which started already before the war, was interrupted by it, resumed in 1945 only to be cancelled some time afterwards. Two naval versions were planned: HD.780 seaplane, one prototype of which was built but apparently never flew, and HD.790 carrier-borne fighter for planned new Joffre and Painlevé aircraft carriers - which never progressed beyond the drawing board (so these two - or at least HD.790 should be in other thread, but I'm posting it here and hope it will be forgiven as an exception ;) )

France (Bulgaria, Germany, Italy), Dewoitine D.520

Nice! Do you plan to draw the Dewoitine D.550/551 as well?

No, not really. Was thinking of it, but ultimately I have already too much to do. Feel free to do them if You like.

Eswube, several sources of the Malta Flight Sea Gladiators, that I have seen, have those sea Gladiators in the Mediterranean Blue Scheme.
