F-Toys 1/144 - Gloster Meteor F.1 - Completed -
The Royal Air Force's first operational jet fighter, modelled as the first Meteor to wing tip a V-1 Flying bomb, EE216 flown by Flying Officer Dean of 616 Squadron.
Re-modelled F-Toys gasphon using spare decals from some Sweet Hurricanes and the lettering which came with the toy which turned out to be really nice, originally thought they looked cheap but i was proven wrong. To make the black rectangles between the fuselage and jet engines i had to cut up the black border line from a decal sheet, only small black lines i could find.
Actual original tail tip...
Used the blu-tac but using white-tac to airbrush the camo-patten.
Used tamiya weathering master lightly along all the panel lines trying to get the 3D effect.
For a remodel of a "toy" im super happy with the result.
