Gloster Meteor Mk4 Fuerza Aérea Argentina – MPM 1/72

August 19, 2021 · in Aviation · · 11 · 2.4K

Hi guys! This is the Mk4 Fuerza Aérea . Represented as it was on March 1959, from the Grupo 2 de Caza Interceptora.

The kit has some nice addings of PE and resin, but was at least difficult on the assembly. Was really hard to fit the resin panel on the cockpit and the wing roots, to fit the fuselage, had to bu cut and reshaped. Passed all that went really smooth.

Primed with gray, sprayed Alluminum from Vallejo all around as a base. Strips painted with Tamiya. Sealed everything with some Future and went with panel lines and decals. Sealed again and weathered with various oils. Went to represent a used aircraft without being too heavy. Matt varnish with a couple drops of Future.

Decent result after all, hope you like it!
