This is an excellent title and my only slight reservation is the fact that the HKM 1:32 Gloster Meteor doesn’t feature as a build. A bit of a missed opportunity this and that would have been the icing on the cake.
Having said that… I can strongly recommend this title to you all – it’s a wonderful one-stop-shop reference to the famous Gloster Meteor fighter.
