Revell (X MPM) Meteor F4
March 22, 2014 in Aviation
Hi All, Another oldie i built this last year its the Revell (X MPM) Meteor F4 or as we brits call
it The Meat Box.
Not a bad kit, nice surface detail the cockpit isn’t great but a perfect candidate for fitting the Eduard Zoom Etch which i did it was for the Dragon kit ( at least i think its the Dragon kit i know i put one in it but not 100% on which kit it was originally meant for ) plenty of filler around the wing joints to the inner and outer joints to the engine nacelle’s and and around the engine intakes the joint to the fuselage wasn’t to bad,
Painted with Tamiya X11 Chrome Silver, even tough they kinda look like a natural metal finnish they were actually painted in a colour called High Speed Silver,the decals used are for No 600 Sqn Royal auxiliary Air Force RAF Biggin Hill 1951. As for the weathering it was done in the usual way for me i.e. the old Flory dark dirt Wash and the Tamiya Weathering pastels just to dirty it up here and there and give the gun ports a bit of sooting up.
Ok That pretty much sums it up sorry about one or two of the wonky pictures im still practicing,
