Finished this one last weekend so I thought I would add to the shower of Meteor builds on BM lately (did you see what I did there...lol) This is the first of two I intend to build, sort of a trial run. Pretty much oob apart from Xtradecal sheet X48-043. 74 sqdn "as it may have looked after the introduction of sqdn markings" to quote the placement sheet! Paint is decanted Tamiya mixed with some other stuff broadly based on Jonners mix and thanks also for the hints and tips Jonners as I followed your build on BM. Next one is going to be camo scheme and will have detailed engine and gun bays and probably a resin seat (although the kit version aint half bad) All the best and thanks for looking in, Steve.
My first build will be MPM F.8 Prone. Ever since I saw it at RAF Cosford I have want to build one, as I like odd looking experimental planes. Will post the sprue shots when I start, as they are still sealed in the plastic bag.
