Special Hobby 1/72 Gloster Meteor T Mk.7 (SH72468) + Masks (M72042)

Today we are going to talk about Special Hobby 1/72 Gloster Meteor T Mk.7 (SH72468) + Masks (M72042). Yes, this time we will check two products at once. Masks are sold separately, but should come handy for a nice paintwork on your model. As for the aircraft, it is the famous British jet, which is made in trainer version. Packaging is typical for this brand, so let's open the box and check everything together.

Watch this video where I show all parts even closer.

We are going to start with wing parts Note that you will have to glue two parts together, bit all mechanization bits are premolded.

Fuselage halves come on the second frame. Both are molded together with nose section and rudder. Such design will require careful assembly, I would prefer to have nose cone as one-piece element instead.

Clear frame is molded separately. Yes, you won't be able to open the cockpit, but in 1/72 scale this is not a huge problem in my opinion.

Decals sheet carries all necessary symbols for several markings. Printing quality looks great here.

For those who would like to have a nice paintwork on their model, I recommend to get masks set which is sold separately. Those stickers will cover not only clear parts, but also landing gear wheels.

Assembly manual is typical for this brand. You can check all pages in the video-review.

New trainer version should be already available. In my opinion it is a great choice for all fans of British aircraft in small scale. Yes, there are some elements which might require a bit of experience from you, but it is not a serious issue. Moreover, kit offers some space for adding more details with help of aftermarket. Of course, the final decision will be after you.
