MPM 1/72 Meteor Mk 8 - A77-873 RAAF

For Shaun.

This is the 77 Sqn boxing.

In short, we poached a newer version canopy from another kit and separated windscreen from hood.

Used the excellent Red Roo Models data stencil sheet to add some interest to this plain jane.

The paint used is the same as the Vampire and Macchi - Tamiya rattle can AS-12 straight from the can. Works a treat and dries in minutes. It's also as touch as nails and shines up nicely with a coat of gloss for decals.

Not time to get it finished and on to the next one.

Trust this helps. Cheers,

AGW..

Using the Red Roo Models RAAF Mk8 Meteor ADF Fairing for this one. Much easier way to got than attempting to craft your own...

Couple of drill bits to hollow it out, a bit of orange paint, and apply to the model. Couldn't be easier.

Seat finished and cockpit suitably aged. On to the finish line...

Cheers,

AGW..
