  5. Gloster Gladiator Mk.I with British Pilots Tropical Uniform (32043) 1:32 ICM The Gladiator was the last biplane fighter used by the RAF due to the introduction of more modern monoplanes. The Gladiator was designed in response to an Air Ministry requirements for an aircraft capable of 250mph armed with at least four machines guns. Gloster decided that rather than developing a brand new fighter they could capitalise on their Gauntlet design. This modified design would dispense with a pair of interplane struts to reduce drag and follow a wing design developed by Ha

  7. Meteor Nightfighter NF.14 (SW48011) 1:48 Sword Models The Gloster Meteor was the RAF’s first front-line jet, and although it wasn’t all that good initially, it was developed over a number of years and found its niches before its straight wings and centrifugal engines consigned it other jobs away from the front-line and eventually to history. In the meantime it had gathered a substantial following from aviation buffs that lingers even today, judging by the comments here on the forum. The Nightfighter was a good role for the Meatbox, as its relatively outdated tec

The Gladiator was designed in response to an Air Ministry requirements for an aircraft capable of 250mph armed with at least four machines guns. Gloster decided that rather than developing a brand new fighter they could capitalise on their Gauntlet design. This modified design would dispense with a pair of interplane struts to reduce drag and follow a wing design developed by Hawkers. The "new" aircraft would use
  11. For quite a while I have been intrigued by thoughts of a Gloster Gladiator Monoplane a whatif model thrown together by Glosters when a small foreign power asks for a cheap monoplane because all its neighbours are getting shiny new 300mph fighters. Glosters were still building Gladiators so using as many parts from stock as possible a cheap and cheerful mono is produced. Unfortunately War were declared and Ruritania is invaded and cannot pay or receive the order so the Fleet Air Arm takes on the finished planes. Last night I was in my local Hobby Craft to buy some paints and I also

  14. The Meteor PR.5 has been a footnote in the Meteor's history: the prototype, VT347, crashed on its first flight, killing Gloster test pilot Rodney Dryland. As a result, no official photographs were taken of the PR.5 and it has faded into obscurity, receiving mention only as a one-off. Thanks to this excellent forum, I asked several weeks ago whether there did happen to be a photograph of the PR.5 and, as is the way of this excellent forum, I came-up trumps. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235044487-the-longest-of-long-shots-the-meteor-fr5/
  15. I think I know the answer to this before I ask, but if you don't ask, you don't get. Has ANYBODY ever seen a picture of the single Meteor FR.5? I have a drawing from Edward Shacklady's book buy I have never seen a photograph. In case you weren't aware, the FR.5 was the intended fighter reconnaissance version of the F.4, similar to how the FR.9 was to the F.8. The prototype, VT347 was a converted F.4 but crashed on its first flight on 15th June 1949, very sadly killing its pilot Rodney Dryland. I cannot imagine it was never photographed but perhaps it would

This kit is from the Wiener Modellbau Manifaktur Gloster VI how to buy It is resin with etched parts. Nice made and a unique model too. Happy modelling

  20. This is the *finally* completed Airfix 1/48th Gloster Meteor F.8 marked as WH364 believed operated by Royal Air Force No.85 Squadron out of RAF Binbrook in 1948. Supplied by the always reliable MJW Models May last year, built Out of Box and airbrushed in Humbrol Metalcote 'Aluminium'. I did use Humbrol Dark Grey Wash in the gun bays and the engine nacelle. Quite a few mistakes and some parts missing however I am impressed with this kit, a bit different from the Airfix of my very young days! What was good? I loved the detail in the cockpit, the gun bay, and the jet engines. Superb d
  21. Hi all, Is there anyone out there who has a good knowledge of the Argentine Meteors an their colours? I'm writing because I'm sceptical, but open to be wrong! My question is about the multitude (seemingly) of highly coloured HSS Meteors, many with cheguerboards, stripes and/or large panels of red, yellow or black .... and more. My scepticism comes from the fact that while I the decal producers show these in their offerings I can only find artificial images on line, most of which are from SimPC users. The only true images I can find on line show either HSSS or the later camouflage. I have to
  22. Hi, I finished this one a couple of weeks back. Finally got her into the photo booth. Xtradecals leave a lot to be desired, with mis numbering, brittleness etc to deal with, but gentle coaxing with X-20A did the trick... 1:48 Airfix meteor F8 NEW TOOL Paints used: Gunze Light Aircraft Grey, Tamiya XF-3 Flat yellow, XF-69 NATO Black Extras: Pavla Mk 4 Seat, Albion Alloys telescopic Aluminium tube for Pitot Decals: Xtradecal X48160 Cheers Chris

  24. Hello all One of my recent completions, the marvellous Gloster Javelin from Airfix. I did this one in the scheme of XH903, which is on display at the Jet Age Museum not far from me, here in Gloucestershire. I did offer to donate this to the museum to sit alongside some of the other models they have on display there, but no response at all from them, which was disappointing. Anyhow, this beast just manages to squeeze onto my display shelf, so at least it's on display somewhere. This is quite a heavy kit when done, with a fair bit of nose weight required, so I thought it was worth getting a me
