Swept Wing Meteor
« on: May 05, 2019, 02:56:35 am »



Rooting around, I've got together these components. The main parts are from a limited run Meteor 8 kit bought ages ago. The swept wings are the outer wing panels from a Frog Sea Vixen. After my enquiry about the Meteor F5, lets see what I can do with my limited skills! Progress will be slow owing to other commitments...….
If this is Upper Silesia, one can only wonder what Lower Silesia is like.

Dear god, that's the Merlin Meteor!  I've a feeling he may have copied the original Frog F8, which despite it's age and primitive rivettyness isn't that bad.

Probably the ideal basis for this type of thing as the plastic is THICK!
