Just the fuel tanks left - when I know exactly where they go.

Excellent Tim!

Don't forget the small ariels (can't remember what they are at the moment) on top of each wing...a quick google wh364 meteor 85 will show a good shot of this when she was a gate guardian at Kemble.

Has to be done matey!

edit : oh, and the cartridge ejector chutes!

Drove past the real wh364 last night.

She's looking a bit more tatty now - the front undercarriage door is hanging off. Very sad :weep:

Very nicely done, just goes to show that vacforms aren't too scary thet just need a different approach. Where is WH364 now? I remember it being on the gate at Kemble but that was a long time ago.

Try one! When you've finished it you will feel much more pleasure than after doing an injection moulded kit.
