Yes another 1/48th Gloster (Sea) Meteor F.Mk.3.

I know, it's not original but OzH and richc post attract my eyes.

Another build of the same aircraft : http://zeke21.zero-city.com/model/metrh.html

As I never resist to the EDSG/Sky scheme I've decided to build - just like richc - the EE337/FD/051 as on strength with 703 NAS at RNAS Ford in the early 50s .

The 1/48th Gloster Meteor F.3 Tamiya kit is very well engineered and need hardly any filler. It took me only one day to build the complete airframe. Uncredible but true.

I scratch built cockpit extra details with plastic rods and strips, put fairings over the cannons apertures, closed the belly gun ejector ports, shortened the engines exhausts and put underfuselage attachments for the arrester hook.

I've got one in the stash also. Been looking at the Sea Meteors and they are growing on me. I like the scheme.

Very inspiring! ;)

Are you going to use decals for the roundels, or are you going to paint them like on your Hunter GA11?

Best regards,

Guillaume

That is superb! the paint and weathering is really excellent and who cares if it's another Sea Meteor! I'm sure with yours you've also inspired more to come along too! Including me...
