I'll take part with a Meteor F.4 from the (then) Dutch Air Forces, as they were still part of the Royal Army at that time. The Air Force only became the Royal (Netherlands') Air Force in 1953.... In any case, the Dutch Meteors weren't the most colorful variants to ever see the skies, but hey... There aren't many photos of the F.4 around on the internet either, so you have to make do with some early ones, BEFORE the introduction of squadron and base-colors. www.strijdbewijs.nl www.gahetna.nl / fotocollectie Anefo, J.D. Noske The second photo is from September 28th, 1949, showing a Meteor that made a crash-landing near the fishing town of Volendam, showing the squadron code "3P", meaning it was from 324 Sqn. The trigger to start the kit was a scale modeling day, organized by the Aviodrome Aircraft Museum on Lelystad Airport on June 20th. http://www.aviodrome.nl/dagje-uit-aviodrome?gclid=CjwKEAjwwZmsBRDOh7C6rKO8zkcSJABCusnbJ2GHPWa1iPn7Qk2rK6rPNFwMpY9N3MDpD_AI33QnFhoCtLTw_wcB The first thing to keep in mind is that the sprue attachments are on the contact surfaces of the fuselage halves and have to be carefully removed. If that is don, it's advisable to treat both contact surfaces to a little sanding with a sanding stick as there are some slight irregularities around the aligning pin holes, as you can see. To be continued.
