Possibly my favourite variant of the iconic Gloster Meteor jet fighter – no, definitely my favourite! I mean… just look at those lines? How cool is that? Check out the video link above for any further inspiration you may want, plus several others that you’ll find at YT.
The MPM kit
As a package this is probably about as good as it gets in 1:72 scale: injected, well-moulded pain components; resin ejection seat and underwing rockets (particularly applicable to the RAAF No.77 Squadron aircraft included on the decal sheet); quality decals and colour photo-etch fret for the main instrument panel and template for locating the rockets. Impressive indeed! The panel line detail is first class in this scale – very restrained, yet clean and precise so that it will just be visible when the model is fully painted and weathered. Looking forward to that stage…
Great box art too and a super-sturdy box to protect all the delicate parts – nice.
