Oxford Diecast Gloster Meteor F2 De Havilland Goblin Jet Test Aircraft AC068
1:72 scale diecast model.
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. This plane DG207/G, which was intended to be the basis for the Meteor 2, is decorated in wartime grey and green 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. However by the time it flew in July 1945 the Meteor 3 was already in production, leading to the cancellation of the F.2.
