Arrived today and pleasantly surprised to find that it is nicer than expected. The Corgi publicity photo's whilst OK haven't done the model a great deal of favours and didn't tempt me to buy one at full price. For £20 delivered I'm very happy. Smile

Here's an illustration of six years of British aviation advances.





Both aircraft were flying operationally in 1945 not too far from each other. The Meteor over Belgium and the Swordfish hunting German mini subs in the English channel. The Swordfish was obsolete in 1939 but shown here carrying the latest ASV radar in 1945. The Meteor at the leading edge of the new jet technology and which had a good fews of service in front of it. I believe one is still flying with Mart Baker.?:unsure:

A colourised photo of the original aircraft I found on the WW2 Colourised Photos Facebook page.
