This is my HK Meteor F4 finished as VT413 of 56 squadron based at RAF Waterbeach in Cambridgeshire circa 1951. The AM bits used were the G-Force undercarriage (expensive but really worthwhile) along with the Brassin wheels, Fisher long chord nacelles to give the right shape at the front end, Profimodeller cockpit PE and Pheon decals. The trolley acc is by Iconicair. After fiddling about with two Tiger Moths for a few months (and not completing them!) this kit was a joy to build. It all went together fairly well with no major issues. I used Mr Paint white aluminium and duraluminium to get the finish that I wanted with Flory dark dirt to weather the plane in places. The sergeant ground crew figure is from the Wings Cockpit range, the pilot is adapted from a WW2 wireless operator, can't quite remember who produced it though. Hope you like it, the next Meteor will be the T7 . Max

Hi all, Having finished my Luftwaffe power generator (http://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?showtopic=47799&hl=) yesterday I am studying a comparable subject: Profimodeller's 2010 hand barrow nr. 32059. I'll describe the completion of the power generator tonight or later this week. I can't find any info about the real life example Profimodeller used (used all kinds of combinations of the terms 'Luftwaffe', 'cart', 'hand', 'barrow', 'Wehrmacht' and the german translations; can't find anything). Furthermore I can't find any build review or pictures of a finished model. Perhaps that's because of the less-than-clear instructions and/or faulty parts such as far too large tyres. All of this is curable though. So I have a few questions to you guys: 1) Does anyone have a pic or reference to a finished model or an 1:1 specimen? 2) Should the colour be the same as the power generator (XF60)? If you don't know and had to guess, what would you do? 3) Should both the woodwork and the metalwork be painted in that colour, or should the wood be left 'weathered wood'? If you don't know and had to guess, what would you do? 4) The stands and suspension look unrealistically thin (see second picture below), they're just single strips of photoetch. Does anyone know if this is indeed unrealistic? What to do? I look forward to your thoughts and ideas... Thanks Roy
