Airfix Gloster Meteor F8 Korea 1/48 Scale

The Gloster Meteor was Britain's first jet fighter and the only Allied jet aircraft to see operational service during the Second World War. The post-war F.8 variant of the Meteor was fitted with new more powerful Derwent turbojet engines was perhaps the definitive incarnation of this famous aircraft and was the main RAF fighter throughout the 1950's, until superseded by the Hawker Hunter. A stable and reliable aircraft, the Meteor F.8 soon became outclassed as on air superiority fighter, but the effectiveness of the basic design allowed the aircraft to be used in a variety of other roles.
