My poor wallet and bank account! Another must have, in all probability. My wife is gonna put my stuff on the lawn, I can see it coming…..

Remember though, you’re paying Airfix prices, not Tamiya/Hasegawa/Trumpeter prices. So, not so bad. probably around $30+ -.

It is such a right choice in 1/48 scale.
While the Tamiya has done a Meteor Mk. I, I haven’t seen very many of them built – believe that the Mk. 8 with its huge variety of marking options presents a real potential to sell in numbers. Go Airfix!

I truly believe we are in an amazing period for 1/48 aircraft modelers. I am having fun trying to keep up!

I hope Airfix has a 1/48 Supermarine Scimitar or Swift planned for the future. The Meteor night fighter variant would be a nicer option!

Awesome. Finally, the Meteor we’ve been wanting. Is it too much to ask for a Short Stirling while I’m at it? Lol. Or any British bomber of ww2 or before.

Italerei has just r eleased a Stirling Mk.I that has gotten decent notices.
Airfix released an excellent Lancaster that has just been re-released as the FE version with the .50 tail turret.
Later this year, Airfix is releasing a Whitley V that people who have seen the test shots rave about.
Given the quality of 1/72 nowadays, I’d take those over 1/48 kits you have nowhere to display the completed model.
Oh, and there is the Airfix Blenheim I and IV that I have that I can tell you are superb.

Last year I sold Classic airframe inventory and stash
for great money.
Now I will be able to invest in dozen new AIRFIX .but still remained Euros.
I believe that it will be accurate and buildable kit like all new Airfix
