  1. Very neat looking Meteor, especially good in 1/72 scale.

  2. Excellent build.

  3. A agree with my esteemed colleague, George...nice job in any scale, but impressive in 72nd (which I rarely do). You'd think think an aerobatic team would be a bit more "flashy" in appearance, but after all, they WERE British. lol

  4. Good looking Meteor!

  5. Allen, I must say, I really like it. Very attractive, very well done. I think this is a wonderful model to have in 1/72 scale.

  6. Allen, real pretty Meteor, in a scheme us gringos don't get to see.

  7. Hi Allan,
    I have just discovered this site and have been so pleased to find the Meteor featured. My father flew Meteors extensively, including 201 sorties in Korea. He actually flew '875' as well.
