HK Models 1/32 Meteor Mk 4

Recommended Posts

This is a test shot of the HK Models Meteor Mk 4. I built the kit with preliminary instructions, test decals and no painting guide (build thread). I chose the included Argentinian scheme because the decals for the RAF options didn't seem quite right colour-wise. As it happens, the Argentinian roundels turned out to be too light. In any case, I thought it was quite a striking scheme!

 

Anyway, enough babbling, on with the photos:

In the next photo, you can see why I've chosen not to highlight the surface detail with any panel line washes:

So, that's it! A simple kit, but a very enjoyable build. The only real change I made to OOB is replacing the two blade aerials in the kit with a whip aerial as per profiles of this aircraft. I can only highly recommend this kit, so pick on up when you can!

 

Thanks everyone for looking in.

Really, really nice finish on what looks like a stunning kit.

 

Completely agree with your thoughts on the lack of panel line wash being required too - I've found the same with the B-17 in the fact HK have got their surface detail just deep enough to be noticed, but any enhancement would over-do the effect.

 

A really great build Kev; looks like another winner from HK.

excellent build Kev, looks very promising, gotta get me one of them for sure.

FMI, you didn´t use the Fisher replacement engine fronts did you? Because the original parts look very good to me (no offence Paul!!)
