A.W. Meteor NF Mk.14 ‘The Last of Night Fighters’ 1/72Art.No.: 100-SH72364 Product number: 8594071087890
The Meteor NF Mk.14 night / all weather jet fighters were desingned as a rather urgently needed replacement of the piston-engine powered Mosquitoes. In the 1950s, the Soviet, nuclear weapons armed bombers posed a very real threat. The last versions of this all-wweather fighter, the Mk.14 introduced many improvements of its airframe based on experience gained by oprating the earlier Meteor versions. Comparing with them, the Mk.14 featured much simplified, rear-slid canopy hood with almost no framing. The RAF operated this final Meteor verison both from the home and overseas bases.
The kit offers five grey styrene sprues and a single clear parts sprue with two styles of the windshield. The decal sheet contains markings for four machines including a full set of the airframe stencilling. There are marking schemes for three RAF machines, one of which flew from Malaya-located bases, the other two were based in Britain. For local customers might be of great significance that onr of the British-based aiframes was flown by a Czech pilot S/L Miro Liškutín. The fourth colour option is a French machine used by the CEV test centre.
