The Gloster Meteor maintains a significant position in the history of the Royal Air Force, as it became Britain’s first operational jet aircraft. Not willing to risk this technology falling into the hands of the Germans, initial operations were confined to UK airspace, particularly in combatting the V-1 Doodlebug threat. Indeed, once Meteors were deployed to Europe in the latter stages of WWII, they were still forbidden to engage in combat with the Messerschmitt Me 262, so we will never know how these significant aircraft would have performed against each other.
In operation, the Meteor proved to be a delightful aircraft to fly and enabled pilots to make a relatively easy transition from piston-engined aircraft to jet-powered flight. Unlike the Messerschmitt Me 262, the Meteor also proved to be almost as reliable as the Spitfires and Tempests it was intended to replace and was even capable of being operated from relatively basic grass airstrips.
Continually developed throughout its service life, the Gloster Meteor would remain in RAF service for many years, with a handful of target towing aircraft still operating in the 1980s. Please note, box and model dimensions are shown as identical however only represent the box/package size.

Very efficient service from yachew, thanks
Amazing service, Yachew! I got a beautiful deckbox case from them — after some careful googling, they had the best price in the market. Buying in their site was very easy, they support Apple Pay if I remember well. Delivery was prompt. And I loved that little surprise: Yachew dropped a gift packet of Haribo next to the product, which was so sweet (you see what I did there?) :-) Will be checking your shop again in the future. Cheers guys!
Its a great model and will be fun to assemble and paint. Detail is nice and is a classic tank from the star wars universe that I couldn't miss out on getting. 🙂
