1/48 T.7 Meteor - Bull's Flagship

Postby AndrewDoppel » Fri Jun 14, 2019 12:05 am

I started this last November and finished it tonight. This is the 1/48 Classic Airframes Meteor T.7 with photo recon (PR9) nose done as A77-701 and as flown by Air Commodore William Henry 'Bull' Garing DFC at Woomera, SA circa 1963 whilst OIC at the Weapons Research Establishment. This was one of the most difficult kits I've ever built as it had badly fitting engines and nose. A big thanks to Antoney George Wilkinson for the Bull decals. I hope you like it.

Nice display of an unusual subject Andrew,really impressive result. Interesting to read your comments on the CA kit as I had planned to build several of them at some point, bought before the Airfix release.

Thanks guys. Dave, don't be disheartened by my comments. That's why we are modeller not assemblers! I've built four CA kits which have all turned out nice. They just need more time and patience.

Beautiful build Andrew...agree with your comments ref CA kits. I have built maybe 3 or 4 with heaps more to do and looking forward to each of them.

Did you use masks for the canopy?

Looks great AD. Personally, CA kits give me the poops, if only because others do it so much better. Even the ancient '70's Monogram kit I'm on atm had only one fit issue & that's only the 2nd fit issue I've EVER had with Monogram kits. I get tired of the "short-run" excuse.
