Gloster Meteor F.8

Scale: 1/48

Manufacturer: Airfix
Parts used: Out of The Box
Main paints used: Hobby Color, MRP

 In Part One we build cockpit and wing structure.
In part two we paint up the cockpit and then dry brush the details in. Next, we look at the sink marks in the wings.

In Part Three, we take care of the sink makes in the wings and replace the raised details lost in sanding. We also look at a simple fix for the wing seams.

In Part Four we work on the engines and then the problem nose before masking up.

In Part five we look at the re-riveting and use O Rings to give us the right curves. Then it’s off to the spray booth to prime up and start on the camo work.
