HK Models Meteor Mk 4 with Profimodeller Derwent Engine

Recommended Posts

Here is my rendition of Hong Kong Models Gloster to which I've also added a Profimodeller RR Derwent in the left wing, and a cockpit detail set from Eduard.  The model has taken me about 3 months to finish and I'm pleased with the result.  I hope HKM or another quality company will produce some more of these early jets as they are a fascinating subject and there are lots of gaps in available kits.

As I said in your WiP thread, Michael, I think it looks terrific! You've done a great job with this one, and I can't wait to see what you tackle next.

Thank you, gentlemen.  It's been an enjoyable build, with the possible exception of the engine, but that turned out well and I want another go at it.  So I am now rounding up all the components I want for me next Meteor build, which will probably be next year.

 

As for what I'll do next, I don't yet know.  I'm leaning towards a Tamiya kit, as I have 3 Spitfires and 2 Corsairs in my stash.  My new years resolution was to have less kits in my stash by this years end, but I'm not doing well with that.  I've completed 2 kits so far this year, but I have 2 on order, and I also want the SH Yak 3 when it's released.  But this is probably a familiar story....

 

 

Cheers,

Michael

Thanks.  I'm starting to assemble the components for the next Meteor.  The HKM kit has arrived (think I got the last one in Aus :) ) and I've just ordered a conversion kit from Fisher Model & Pattern.  I will also add the engine to this build, and I hope to get started on this in the new year.  My model building has been confined almost exclusively to WW2 piston engine fighters, but I'm finding these post war jets intriguing now.  Hope there are more releases!!

 

If I can get my fingers to warm up (hate winter, and this is a cold one this year), I'll get on with my next build.  I said in a previous post that I'd likely start on a Tamiya Spitfire or Corsair, but have decided on neither.  All will be revealed if I can get a bit more done before I start a new WIP thread.

 

 

Cheers,

Michael
