Another excellent 'Should Have Been'.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Gloster Meteor F.4 - 'Drag?es', Aeron?utica Militar, 1951











I've been meaning to do a Portuguese Meteor for a few weeks now and this is the new Meteor F.4 that came out quite recently - a lovely 3D model and I've been given a blank silver skin and a blank camo skin to play with. The real Drag?es flight demonstration team didn't come into existence until 1956 by which time the Aeron?utica Militar had become the modern day Portuguese Air Force (For?a A?rea Portuguesa).
