Meteor F8, WK803/V, No. 56 Sqn, RAF Waterbeach, 1953


Recommended Posts

It's a nice little kit this, fits together well - just remember to add plenty of noseweight!

 

WK803 was one of the Meteors that took part in the 1953 Queen's Coronation flypast. This is how she appeared around this time, with the metal on the rear canopy, high speed silver paint and smaller diameter intakes. 

 

Meteor F8s flew with 56 Sqn from Waterbeach in Cambridgeshire until being replaced by Swifts in 1955.

There is a conversion by Freightdog that gives you everything you need, including decals for 56. I think it is still available. I did one last year for the Year I Was Born
