1/32 ICM Gloster Gladiator Mk.1 (32040)

This is a beautiful kit in some ways and a bit of a pain in the wahoo in others. The surface detail is first rate as is the detail in the cockpit. I ran into a lot of trouble with the fit of the fuselage halves. Perhaps it was my fault; [...]

Gloster Meteor Mk4 Fuerza Aérea Argentina – MPM 1/72

Hi guys! This is the Gloster Meteor Mk4 Fuerza Aérea Argentina. 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 [...]

Gloster Meteor, the nose job one.

What is it with Airfix and noses? Their Sea Fury i just completed recently is a bit of a shocker and now this. I suppose it keeps one busy instead of just stick part a to part b type of deal, but it is a tad annoying. Anyway, besides that [...]

Gloster Meteor F.8 at Försökscentralen

The Försökscentralen (Test & Evaluation squadron) is a lesser known part of the Swedish air force. It tests flying materiel, tactics and equipment. Although it probably got less money in the budge than Pentagon use for paperclips in [...]

Jet Age Museum in Gloucestershire part 2

Dear iModelers! I was thinking about continuing one of my last articles about the Jet Age Museum. During a wonderful road trip through the southwestern part of Britain in 2017, I got the chance to visit the Jet Age Museum in [...]

Airfix 1/48 Gloster Meteor F. 8

Here’s my version of the Airfix Gloster Meteor F. 8. Much has been written about this kit so I won’t bore you with more of the same. This makes kit number four for the year.

Jet Age Museum in Gloucestershire

In his "On This Day" blog, David has recently shown a picture of a Gloster Typhoon, taken at Gloster Factory in 1944. Having a special remembrance to this place, I thought I could show some of my pictures from a UK [...]

Airfix 1/48 Gloster Meteor F.8

Here's my contribution to the "100 Years of the Royal Air Force" Group build. The Airfix kit left me with somewhat mixed feelings - on one hand it is nicely detailed and goes together well for the most part, on the other hand it [...]
