Here are some pics of my latest, just finished today. The HK Models 1/32 Meteor Mk.4 converted to an F.Mk.8 with Fisher Models conversion set and Zotz decals for 117 Tayeset, Israeli Air Force, 1956.

Not what I'd call an easy one but pretty satisfying!

Nice clean build Michael, what paint did you use for the NMF?

Cheers, D

Actually the Israelis kept the Speed Silver finish. I used Floquil Old Silver for the painted on aluminum color. I generally use Floquil Bright Silver for BMF. Hopefully we'll see how that looks on an upcoming build I shall not mention at the moment.

Thanks D, from I really appreciate the complement from a great modeller like you!

Michael, that is really a beautiful build. Looks like it could fly off the table. Excellent finish indeed. Thanks for sharing.

Best wishes,

Fantastic looking Meteor Michael. The black and white trim around the engine air intakes is very striking.
