Tamiya 1:48 Gloster Meteor F.1 - SOLD
Professionally Built model of the Gloster Meteor F.1 (Tamiya 1/48)
The Meteor holds a very special place in the history of the RAF, as the first jet to enter squadron service. This particular example comes from the very first squadron to become active, 616 Squadron based at Manston in July 1944. Tasked with intercepting V-1 flying bombs, the aircraft proved reasonably successful though it was not as fast as the best piston-engine aircraft available at the time.
The 1/48 scale model shown here has been built from the Tamiya kit and painted in Xtracolour enamels. A similar model built with no further modifications would cost £90.00, plus the cost of the kit. Please contact us through the Commissions section if you are interested
