Lovely Chris! I don't think I have seen those before

I hadn't seen them for a long time either! I seem to remember bringing them along to a club meeting a long time ago.....but maybe not!

A beautiful collection of Meatboxes from a time when there weren't many decent kits of the type. There's some great conversion and re-scribing work on display here. Thankfully, for me at least, it is a lot easier to build a Meteor these days.

Now that's what I call a Meteor shower!

Every single one is a stunner, although I do admit to having a soft spot for both the T7 and the NF14 types.

Thank you for them all here.

Great work! May I ask which brand of dayglo you used on the T7. Thanks.

The dayglo was good old Humbrol Fire Orange, applied over firstly white, then a coat of matt orange before the dayglo.
