Quote from: PR19_Kit on May 02, 2020, 07:15:16 AMOh yes, I DO like that Dave! Is it an F8 with an NF11 radome, or an NF11 with an F8 cockpit though?
Quote from: PR19_Kit on May 02, 2020, 07:25:04 AMHehehe, so you started with an NF11, converted it to an F8 and left the NF11 radome on it?
Quote from: Knightflyer on May 02, 2020, 08:30:05 AMA very smart looking finished product. Well done
Quote from: The Wooksta! on May 03, 2020, 07:42:11 AMA two seater in a training/development role isn't too much of a stretch either. Possibly NF14s but with bang seats too?

Possibly NF14s but with bang seats too?I'm sure the Meteor T7 must have been a cheap as chips to build and operate as I've wondered why an NF14-based trainer as described by Lee never happened?Now I've 2 Matchbox NFs in the stash (one as an 11, the other a 14), so if one were to be replaced by a Special Hobby NF.14, and assuming I can find a non-radar nose and get the right seats......

Quote from: The Wooksta! on May 03, 2020, 11:03:11 AMI meant a "straight" NF14, with the wingtip missiles and bang seats, possibly as a De Havilland development aircraft instead of the Venom that they did use.Dave, use the Matchbox ones for whiffing and just get the new Special Hobby one for the real thing. That's what I'd do. IIRC I might have the mould somewhere for a standard nose but I may have a gash fuselage kicking about too. Yours if and when you want it. Edit: found a cast resin fighter nose that's of no use to me. You may need to add a few shims of plastic card on the back but it's perfectly useable. I did find a gash Airfix Meteor nose, but only one half...
