  1. Don't know which mark of Meteor NF you are doing but the instructions you posted above are very wrong relating to the nose. The NF 11 and 13 Have the same length nose and the NF12 and 14 have the same length nose. the NF 14 did not have "a even Longer Nose" as stated, so Check your dimensions, the nose of this kit as originally molded as a NF 14 may because of this have too long a nose.

  2. It would never happen. Afterburner is used to produce more thrust; i.e. make the aircraft go faster. Thrust reverser buckets are deployed to make the aircraft slow down (on landing). Two completely opposite conditions, There would be no occasion you would need to use both together. Selwyn
  3. Eduard 49007 Seat belts RAF Late. Selwyn
  4. Just picked up the AZ Martlet 1 kit, looks quite nice, but the Decal sheet looks to be an absolute dogs breakfast. It would have you modelling BJ 561 S7L with grey codes on one side and red on the other, not that it matters as the decal sheet presents the "Grey" S7L side in white decals anyway! The other two schemes for 802 and 804 NAS show them having white code letters "Q" and "A" respectively in white, again not sure about this, should surely be in grey? can anyone confirm as i am finding online profiles in both colours.

  5. The T shaped antennas are Rad Alt found on lots of RAF aircraft Such as Meteor Nightfighters. Selwyn
  6. Guys you might find this interesting? American fighters for the RAF 1941 Selwyn
  7. Finally got time for a quick in progress! After sanding and priming managed to get the top coat on and things are looking OK. This Weekend job is to get the decals on and a varnish topcoat. The finishing line is looming! Selwyn
  8. Yes these were delivered post war, but the question is about Possible operation of RAF operated canberras from Chile during the war. Selwyn
  9. Looks great! But for me you could take it to the next level by some detail work on the Sparrow missiles. Those fins must be about 3 scale inches thick! Selwyn
  10. Been looking at the ex French contract Martlet 1 images from the FAA museum exhibit and the unusual "FAA equivalent" camouflage colour scheme. I then saw this image posted on the web and something occurred to me. so this is my question, is it actually a FAA equivalent Scheme, or is it the colour scheme originally specified by the French? Taking into account it still has the modified French style tail stripes although with French roundels painted over with British markings could this be possible? As stated in the thread above Grumman's Equivalent colours were reputed very good matches to the FAA colours, but strangely not so in this case. Selwyn
  11. There was not a defect in the fuzes, The fuzes were set with too short arming times in mission requirements by aircrew. They were made aware of the danger by the armourers but chose to ignore the advice, it resulted in the loss of an aircraft, as a bomb after release when it armed, its proximity sensor detected the next bomb in the stick in front of it instead of the ground and detonated behind the aircraft. Selwyn
  12. Surprisingly enough I have no products in my inventory to deal with conventional decals, no setting solutions or whatever. never had a use for them. I'd suggest that you quit thinking of them as decals? Why? They are marketed as 3D decals. Ergo they must be decals! Or should we invoke the trade descriptions act 1968? Selwyn
