Hi all

 

Here is my recently completed Special Hobby 1/72 Meteor T.7.5

 

I usually model in 48th but having modellers block I decided to do something a bit different and was attracted to this colour scheme, there is something about a military aircraft in civi clothing that I like

 

took my around 5 days to complete and I'm reasonably happy with it so thought id share it with you all.

Hi Scott,

this is truly a magnificent paint scheme, and your build is damn excellent!

Five days to build this little gem?!! That's about the time it takes me to remove the see-through wrapping, read the instructions and destroy the first piece of plastic I try to remove from the sprue... So your labor of love is impressive. And it is a Meteor!

A very handsome effort and nice to see a civil Meteor! Perhaps next, the carmine red F4 demonstrator?

Excellent job! I can see why the colour scheme attracted you - looks great.

I too have this kit Scott, your 5 day marathon was well worth the effort😉 and your paint job is superb, a very attractive scheme to choose and hopefully the mojo reviver you were looking for.

Excellent job! She does look rather nice in that blue scheme.

And I will echo what the others said.

A lovely job, Scott.

The glass table makes it look like it's on a wet dispersal.

Yes, the red F 4 would be welcome, especially if it's as good as this one.

I'll concur with my colleagues that this is a nice job done on this kit.

 

I see mention of a red F4 demo. Is this on a particular decal sheet or kit boxing? I don't remember having seen anything of this description in my internet travels. Any info appreciated!

I agree, the Meteor looks very nice in civvies.

An absolute beauty.  I totally agree, a great colour scheme.  I wish Special Hobby would release this kit with the parts to build it as Martin Baker's 'Asterix'.

Thanks for all the great comments folks I'm thinking of doing the yellow world speed record F.4 now to go with it :D

Fab job - I have this in my stash hoping to do Asterix one day - I doubt I'll do as good a job as this

Very nice. I think this is the first Meteor 7.5 I've seen built up. What colour did you use for the blue?

Looks great!  A nice break from military camouflage. :winkgrin:

So, has it convinced you to drop 1/48 in favour of 1/72?  😁
