1/48 - Gloster Meteor F.Mk.4 & T.Mk.7 (and NF. ?) resin conversion sets from Alley Cat - release in 2018 ?

Recommended Posts

A2Zee is preparing in the Alley Cat range (?) 1/48th Gloster Meteor F.Mk.4 and T.Mk.7 resin conversion sets.

NF. variants being also looked at. 

Conversion sets for Tamiya Meteor F.Mk.III or Airfix F.Mk.8?

Source: http://www.alleycatmodels.co.uk/

To be followed

It says "the new Meteor" so has to be the Airfix F.8. No-one would call the Tamiya kit "new".

Furthermore, if the F.4 conversion contains clear parts that proves it's for the Airfix kit because an F.4 has the same canopy as an F.3, but a different one from an F.8

Good news! A T.7 has been on my "want" list for quite some time - there are a few aeroplanes I think look (even) better as two-seaters and the Meteor is one of them.

The Classic Airframes kit is old and rare and therefore in my opinion way too expensive for what you get compared to today's standard. I was actually starting to think about making a T.7 myself someday...

I like the T.7 too. Might leave the 8 tail on it because the late tail variant, sometimes known as the T.7.5 , is the Meteor project I would have if I were a Euromillions winner.

I'll tell you what, with the PR9 nose the Alleycat F4 tail and the easy addition of a couple of rounded wingtips  you are more than well on your way to a PR10!

Did this set ever get released?

I'm probably going to sound like a broken record now, but it amazes me what isn't available for some kits.

It's on his website to order but without a price. Just sent them a message to see if it's available yet.

"The Meteor Mk4 and Spitfire PR4 conversions for the Airfix Meteor Mk8 and Spitfire Vb will be live in the next couple of weeks, as cast up and just awaiting the final instruction writing...."
 
From their homepage...

Oh dear, just after I finished converting the Classic Airframes F.4 to a U.15 ... Now he needs to get cracking on the T.7!

Just been ploughing through my notebooks of things to remember. No reply from Alleycat. Which is a tad annoying.

 

Has anybody got an F.4 conversion yet? There's a GB that I can put an Argentine F4 into IF I get the conversion :)

It's still showing on the website, and still without a price. I take it from that that it's a way off yet (SOB!).

 

And Selwyn, that's exactly what I had in mind for one of mine ...
