Scaled-Down Meteors

Various Meteor model options are discussed by editor Chris Clifford


If you’re a kit builder who’s short on display space, Miniwing’s 1/144 scale T.7 is a worthy option
Special Hobby from the Czech Republic has an excellent range of 1/72 Meteor kits, one of which is this eye-catching World Speed Record F.4.
Modellers who prefer larger scales have a decent option in Hong Kong Models’ 1/32 Meteor F.4.

As Great Britain’s first operational jet fighter, Gloster’s Meteor has attracted the attention of many kit manufacturers. Readers of a certain age may remember Airfix’s original 1/72 Meteor F.3 from 1970, which was re-boxed several times up to 2005.
