HK Meteor F.4 in Canadian markings.

Recommended Posts

This is a what if build, had some markings from Leading Edge for a CT-33 from 414 Sq Black Knights. They look OK to me and add some color to the display case. Build itself was relatively straight forward. Paint was Tamiya spray bomb and Tamiya Acrylics, Florys wash.

I never saw this scheme before and did not ever know Canada used Meteors, but i definitely love it !

It's a very clean and beautiful model !

 

This build is a what-if, we never did use the Meteor operationally, but did evaluate them ( and broke most of them ).  It kinda looks like the old CF-100 Canuck, would be nice to be the Clunk done in 1/32.

I know that the CDN government has a really bad habit of using equipment until they fall apart but....We had 3 Meteors on evaluation and one, E311 was ditched in a lake in northern Ontario.  The pilot rode out the water landing and managed to walk out of the bush 28 days later.  The aircraft was salvaged with only minor damage.

 

And one shed some of the tail in a high speed dive

 

Very nice build by the way!

Hi Don,

 

well i have to say, i don't really like what-if builds, but this one just rocks it all the way.

 

To be honest, i like that color scheme a lot, and with the very nice and sharp precision of painting you got a winner Don :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:  :speak_cool:
