Product Summary

This 1: 72 scale replica represents DG207/G which was intended to be the basis for the Meteor 2 and is decorated in the wartime grey and green camouflage scheme with yellow undersides.  Its number DG207 is printed towards the rear of the fuselage with the prototype P printed in yellow behind the RAF roundel on each side of the aircraft

The Gloster Meteor was the first British jet and the Allies’ first operational jet fighter during WWII.  The initial design saw the Meteor F.1 taking its first flight in 1943, entering service with the RAF in July 1944.

The Gloster Meteor F.2 was an alternative engine version with two Halford H1s installed for prototype and trial purposes although it was intended ultimately to use De Havilland engines upon production.  However, it was July 1945 before it actually flew, by which time the Meteor 3 was already in production, leading to the cancellation of the F.2.  It all goes to show how fast things moved at that time in order to be one step ahead of the airborne enemy.
