1/48 Airfix Gloster Meteor F.8

I’ve had a great time building the last few years’ worth of 1/48th Airfix new tools, so I figured why not give their 2016 issue Gloster Meteor F.8 a go. I assumed this kit would live up to the ease of Airfix’s recent Spitfires, P-51D, Defiant, [...]

1/48 Gloster Meteor F.8

This is the second issue of the recent Airfix kit. It includes markings for two RAAF 77 Sq. Korean War veterans and a Dutch aerobatic team example. This issue also differs from the initial RAF release in that it includes eight 60lb. rockets. [...]

Tamiya Meteor and Doodlebug

This is the 1/48th scale Tamiya Gloster Meteor F1 & Fieseler Fi103 V-1 flying bomb mounted on a simple Perspex stand. Both models were built straight from the box. The only alteration is the pilot. His head was removed and turned to look to [...]

Gloster Meteor FR Mk 9 – 1/72 – MPM – Operation “Musketeer”

The MPM's Kit is not properly an high-tech kit, but it's easy to assembly and accurate. I immediately liked the colors of this plane used in the Operation Musketeer, 1956.

Second attempot on the Airfix 1/48 Meteor F. Mk. 8

Gloster NF 11 Meteor, A77-3, WRE RAAF Woomera SA 1954.

1/72 Matchbox, my second Meteor, I made a few small modifications, finished in MM enamels with Tamiya X22 over kit and Aussie decals from the spares box, flown by the Weapons Research Establishment RAAF between 1953 and 1955.

Airfix 1/48 Meteor F.8

By 1947, the Meteor fighter had been in production slightly more than four years, with an airframe that was much the same as the original prototype, other than extensions of the engine nacelles which had been accomplished with the F.Mk.4 and re[...]

RAAF Gloster Meteor F.8, 1/48 by Airfix

According to my references, A77-157 was delivered to the RAAF in Korea in February, 1952 & survived the conflict to meet its fate as a target drone in Woomera, South Australia in September 1969. Late production Meteors were equipped with ful[...]
