  1. Here are two photos I took while I was going back to MDQ´s airport for my return trip to Buenos Aires. Translated from this link: First flown in England on April 4th 1948. Assigned to the 4th Interceptor-Fighter Regiment (Regimiento de Caza Interceptora) as I-073. Flight of acceptance in Argentina on September 19th 1949. Transferred to the 3rd Interceptor-Fighter group and re-registered as C-073. Discharged on December 30th 1970 due to flying hours limit, being the Gloster with most flight hours on the Air Force. It´s now a gate guardian on the entrance to the BAM MDQ with the fictional registration of I-071.

    Airfix 1/48 Gloster Meteor F.8 Korea

    The new Airfix 1/48 Gloster Meteor F.8 is now in stock and available to order. The kit has marking options for two 77 Squadron RAAF Meteors based at Kimpo, Korea in 1953 and a 327 Squadron aircraft of Royal Netherlands Air Force Diamond Four display team
  3. The Dual-Build Diaries - A Meatbox Apocalypse! 1/48 Edition. Before I commence with this new WIP I will explain the strange course of events that lead me to build this my next bench time beauty. A Tamiya Gloster Meteor F.1. Stick with me it’s going somewhere I promise. During the build of my first WIP a few months ago a 1/48 Tamiya Swordfish I came along a BM member, Tony, aka “The Baron” building the same plane albeit at 1/72 and Matchbox. We built along in tandem sharing advice and tips along the way, great fun! This was all very coincidental but the banter kept the momentum of both builds going strong. So to cut a long and convoluted story short we mailed each other and decided to do it again but this time on purpose. Two different blokes, Two different Countries, Two different scales but the same plane, well almost. As I said Mine will be a Tamiya Gloster Meteor F.1 1/48 and Tony’s will be a Meteor NF.14 1/72. You can find “The Dual-Build Diaries - A Meatbox Apocalypse! 1/72 Edition.” here. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235002360-the-dual-build-diaries-a-meatbox-apocalypse-172-edition/ I/we hope you find this Duel WIP thread interesting and fun, I know I’m going to have a blast. Here goes. Wish us luck. Tony and John. Here is the obligatory box shot with a few little extras I couldn’t help but add to the shopping list. And here are are the sprues. I have some early start posts to add tonight but I need to go bath the kids, not a euphemism. So you will have to excuse me for a little while. but before I go a question..........
  4. With a disaster befalling my Mig-23 in the From Russia With Love GB I would like to join this GB with a 1/72 Revell Gloster Meteor. I have already build this kit in an MPM guise but this time it will be in NMF and hopefully I will avoid some of my mistakes from last time. The kit is quite nicely laid out but lots of flash. As always all comments very welcome. Dave
  5. Hello, one more from my production line, this is the 1/72 Dragon/Cyber Hobby kit of the Gloster Meteor F3. I used Eduard photo etch set for detailling. The model was painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Decals from the box, representing a machine of 616. Squadron in early 1945. I replaced the kit's roundels with aftermarket items for more accurate colors. Photographs by Mr. Wolfgang Rabel, my "camera wizard"! Thanks for your interest, have a joyful christmas time!
  6. Finished at last! I present the Cyberhobby (Dragon) 1/72 Gloster Meteor F3 completed as Australia's first Meteor A77-1. This aircraft was delivered in June 1946, but it didn't have a long career being written off after a heavy landing in February 1947. Some nice photos can be found here: http://www.adf-gallery.com.au/gallery/Meteor-A77-1. The boxing I had came with the extra RAAF decals, and I made some minor modifications to the basic kit to better represent the Australian airframe (spade grip joystick and some etched seatbelts scavenged off some long gone Spitfire, and modifications to the exhaust pipes to represent the shorter exhaust Derwent engines). The build thread can be found here. Finished with brush painted Tamiya acrylics as always. Thanks for looking. And here it is paired with the CMR resin DH Vampire F1 A78-1, Australia's first Vampire which I finished earlier in the year.
  7. Hi all, as the title says I like to contribute with the Meteor EE455 "Yellow Peril" (also called "Forever Amber") in 1:48 scale. EE455 was one of two F.3 Meteors which were modified on production line for a speed record attempt (the other was EE454 called "Britania"). Both got the F.4 Rolls-Royce Derwent engines but otherwise kept the F.3 wings. with rounded and longer wing tips. Guns and other equipment were removed, both jets got modifications on the canopy and so on. On November 7 1945 EE455 broke the world speed record (966 km/h) but within the same day EE454 set the mark to 976 km/h. EE455 was the Gloster aircraft in a bright Trainer Yellow livery with Union Jack on the nose sides, while EE454 was the RAF machine in standard camouflage ( ). The only thing which was a bit more interesting on EE454 was the canopy. Here is a pic of EE455 and what areas need attention (well - what I spotted so far): And here is what I like to throw in: So the kit is started but I think it should be within the rules. Please let me know if it does not. Other than the Classic Airframes kit there are Baracuda cast small bore intakes, Dutch Decals (IIRC including the Yellow Peril) and a yellowed Aeroclub canopy. I am not sure if the latter one will be used. I will try to get rid of the yellow tint but have no clue yet how. Rene
  8. Hi, first post and first completed model in around 25 years. I have a blog here documenting my return to the hobby rather than filling up this forum with my inane ramblings. I have a few models on the go that I pick at as and when the mood takes me. I intended to complete a classic aircraft – a Spitfire – as a gentle re-introduction to all things plastic and to practice all these new-fangled ideas that had passed me by. Also, to be honest, something to take me away from my first kit bought during a particularly boring day at work ‘checking emails’ – a 1/72 Airfix Concorde. No sniggering at the back. Thank you. Unfortunately the only Spit in the shop was the Airfix 1/48 MkIXc, which is fine but involved a lot more work than I was expecting. I certainly had many opportunities to practice sanding and filling but it wasn’t the steady build to completion that I needed for encouragement. Hence, I present my 1/48 Tamiya Gloster Meteor F.1. Nothing too demanding yet enough to keep me interested and, most importantly, I finished it! I’d like to thank my airbrush for making it what it is. I could have spent much longer fettling this and that but it’s served its purpose and I’m encouraged to tackle something else from the ever growing stash. Xtracrylix throughout except for wheel wells for which I used Rub'n'Buff. Citadel matte varnish to finish. Micro tubing for gun barrels and other details Generally pleased with it (mainly because it’s my first for a while), had a few issues with decals and setting solution, but we’re friends now; canopy looks really thick, but didn’t want to go down the route of thinning that on this occasion; a bit of over-spray here and there and I’m not sure about the weathering – I switch from thinking too much to too little. I also want to say what an inspiration and source of knowledge this forum is. I’ve spent far too many hours looking through posts and galleries here, but what a resource. Thanks to all who contribute! So there we are, be as nice or scathing as you like. Maybe I’ll finish another… Cheers, Carl
