I've heard from someone (I really don't remember who) that you are working on a corrected Meteor F.4 windshield and canopy. Is that true? It would be tremendous news, since the kit canopy is too squat and it shows... Cheers, erik.
This is my present project, the HK Models Gloster Meteor Mk IV, with the addidtion of the Profimodeller engine set, fabric seatbelts and an Eduard photo etched cockpit set. I am presently well into the build, so for the moment, this will bring you you to date. I must also add that a 1/32 Meteor Mk IV is a kit I have wanted someone to do for about 45 years.

More on this build can be found under the "Works in Progress" forum. http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=62862 Cheer
