Well here we are with another rendition of Airfix's new Meteor this time as you can see in markings for an aircraft flown by the Israeli airforce.
It is nice to see another 1/48 Meteor available to us and I must admit to getting a little giddy w[...]
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 Gloucestershire wher[...]
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.
Here are a few photos of my final builds for the year (not strictly true but I cant show you the very last one yet!) which are the Airfix 1:48 Sea Fury and the Airfix 1:48 Gloster Meteor FR.9.
The Sea Fury has the Barracuda wheels and cockpit p[...]
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 suffers from a [...]

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, [...]
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. [...]
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 [...]
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.
