Gloster Meteor F.Mk.8 WF677 1/48 Airfix

Recommended Posts

I'm quite happy with the resilt, although the Airfix kit can be pain in the (...) :wall: sometimes. But in the end it's a beautiful bird..

 

Cheers from Czech rep.

Sweet.

And an excellent job on the nose fit. If you don't mind my asking, did you follow the instructions there, or did you attach each half of the nose cone to the respective fuselage half?

Now that's a stunner!! I especially like the first picture, and that despite the fact I'm not a fan of intake plugs...

Thanks for posting.

I wander in and out of wingey things every so often, and it's always a pleasant experience to see a model like this. Absolutely stunning. It almost tempts me into building aircraft again.......no...No...NO! get thee behind me Satan!

I can't answer for the builder although I am of the opinion that anytime a kit has a plug to install on a fueselage it is best to deviate from the instructions and line those halves up with the fuselage.

 

The seam in the middle is always easier to eliminate.

Beautiful in every way. The overall smooth finish is perfect. Very tempted to crack open my kit now after seeing this. 

 

Cheers.. Dave

It would by much easier to attach each half of the nose cone to the fuselage first, but I've lost the attention there and did follow the instructions to the letter. Bad idea..

It's a mixture of Semi Matt Aluminium, Light Grey and White.

 

Thanks for the comments!

Best Meteor I've seen. Excellent work there and very well photographed. Makes me want to get one, immediately.
