I bought one of those a long time ago --- is it a new re-release Harold ?

No idea - I just saw it on Hannants and thought some people might be interested.

They've been available direct from Brigade and on their stand at shows for years. Not sure if they have a website as if you Google "Brigade Models" you get a wargames trader. Their magazine adverts give an e-mail for orders.

They've advertised a prone Meteor conversion for ages, but I've yet to see one ?

It's rough but workable - the plastic has some bad flash but it's soft and workable.  The canopy is next best to useless and the fin will need a great deal of sanding to get it to scale thickness.  A lot of sanding will be needed to get any cockpit interior in. As for the donor kit... Do not get me started on the utter abortions that are Italeri's excreble attempts at a Spitfire.   It will take an 2009 Airfix mk IXc wing with some minor surgery. 

The decals are nice but left too long they are prone to cracking and breaking up, but that's common to all Fantasy Printshop decals.
