Special Hobby 1/72 Gloster Meteor "World Speed Record"

August 26, 2020 · in Aviation · · 18 · 2K

Hi There,
A small diversion form building for Innis by sticking together one for myself.

Primed with Mr. Hobby Finishing Surfacer White,
Painted with Colourcoats RAF/FAA Yellow, Xtreme Metals Aluminium and rubber Black. Finished with Alclad Aqua Gloss.

This one isn't quite finished but I'm off on the Night Shift for a bit so I'll clean the gray wash off a bit more and touch up the canopy.

Thanks for looking,

  1. What a great paint scheme, Alistair (@alistairfgauld). It is nice to see a Meteor in something other than camouflage. Well done!

  2. Hi Alistair. That is a very nice paint scheme. It makes me want to paint the one is my stash in The colours of a Belgian Air Force target drone tug.
    Just do do something different besides the usual.
    Thank you.
