414 EWU Meteor-Finished
« on: December 05, 2009, 07:35:44 am »
Hi guys,
    This is the first Meteor I've ever built. Neat aeroplane ! I decided to do her as an EWU bird, with that big fat beak, I could hardly resist ! Added the tip tanks from a T-bird, and some bits and bobs to simulate the way a Clunker looked in this role.







And here she is at Baden-Baden awaiting another sortie

Thanks guys ! I should take a pic of the underside....the tanks are modified to be chaff dispensers like the Clunk had.

The BUSINESS!  ;D

A Meteor is very much a smaller Canberra, you can do ANYTHING with it and it still looks right. RCAF colours really suit it for sure.
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! :)

Fantastic! Captures the look of the EW Clunk... but as a Meteor, absolutely perfectly.

It is so perfect it cannot be What-if creation at all but must be full JMN tedious work >:(
One of the pictures above is not scale model but true-life scale 1, and this has nothing to do in a what-if forum. I am going to complain, photographic evidence will decide: this is not Photoshop at all but real, yes! I swear and many visitors will confirm.
I know, I know, some advocate will show a listing "proving" (to naive believers) that Canada never operated Meteor. Bullshit: the answer is "top secret" evidence. Like the USAF listings "proved" the stealth did not exist (...before it became public)... I will win this trial. Canuck Meteor(s) did exist, and this above is the very proof.
(joke ;D )

I LOVE it!

I mean, it ain't a Clunk but it's still real cool!

Actually, Canada did operate Meteors; exactly four (three F3s and a T4), to be exact.

Is nice!!!  And such an obvious take on the Meatbox I'm surprised we've not seen one before (well, to the best of my knowledge, that is).  wish I'd thought of it - well done.   ;D ;D
