Airfix Releases New Gloster Meteor FR.9 Model Kit

Airfix has released their new Gloster Meteor FR.9 model kit in 1/48 scale.

The FR.9 was based on the F.8 fighter variant and served as an armed reconnaissance machine, equipped with an elongated nose housing a Williamson F.24 camera as well as external wing and ventral fuel tanks for increased range.

The new kit (A09188) is reportedly based on the new tool F.8 kit (A09182) released in 2016 and comes with two livery options representing WL263 of 208 Squadron and WB116/G of 2 squadron.
