In progress
1:48 Gloster Meteor F.4 (Classic Airframes 477)
 
21. May, 07:54
Boris Belay My first Classic Airframes kit, bought second-hand after the Airfix kit was released (so fairly cheap).
So far a lot of preparation work, as would be expected. But the confusing (wrong, actually) instructions for the cockpit and the silly mistakes on parts like the seat (combined with the scarcity of information on the F.4 model) makes for a laborious build at first. The detail on some of the resin is also poorer than the in-box reviews made me think.
Overall, it looks like it should be fine in the end, but I did not expect such slow progress...

Boris Belay Hi Alex, I'm uploading the most relevant pictures related to Hurricanes in Greece. Pictures of my build will follow, but it's less interesting...
14. May, 10:48
Alex K Interesting research - thanks for sharing, much appreciated
14. May, 21:43
Boris Belay Thanks. If you have anything to add, let me know. The build is finished, but i am still interested.
I was also tempted to build the crashed Me109 that Dahl photographed after it was shot down in Eleusis. But that's another project !
15. May, 09:37
Alex K I've already checked and the truth is that the totality of RAF-Hurricanes-in-Greece photos I know of / have copies of are of wrecked Hurricanes after the Luftwaffe attacks - you know the kind, the wrecks found at Argos etc... e.g. the famous V7773 "Surrey" etc. (btw, here's the 1/72 rendition of that one by a good friend [or rather: mentor...] of mine: ipernity.com/doc/elias_k/album/1245960 ) - so I don't know (also given the diversity of little details per each different example, as you pointed out) if these could be of any help for this particular project - but of course I will be happy to share, if you are interested!
15. May, 17:34
Alex K As for the Me 109 "Black Ten" brought down in Eleusis airfield, yes, that's a nice idea (I knew that the photo appeared in "Going Solo" - and there's a second one in Shores & Cull "Air war for... etc" - interestingly enough, they misidentify the example as the one shot in Larissa, while it is definitely the one shot down at Eleusis!). While I'm not a fan of Luftwaffe aircraft, such Me 109s shot down during the Greek campaign (the above Black 10 at Eleusis, White 5 at Larissa, Black 4 and Black 1 in Crete) are indeed interesting subjects... maybe I might me tempted some day... Needless to say, it is a real pleasure having a scale-mate interested and knowledgeable in the '40-'41 Greek campaign! :)

Boris Belay Hi Alex,
I have several pictures of Functional Hurricanes in Greece, in case you are interested :
V7288 with Cullen before his last flight
V7419 in Larissa with the pilots of 33 Sqn posing in front.
V7599 in Eleusis earlier, with a few pilots in front
V7804 (?) in Paramythia
And of course, the Megara Hurricane in Dahl's book labeled "My Hurricane" (whether correct of not). It's definitely not V7826, since it has exhaust light deflectors visible.

The pictures of the wrecked ACs at Argos were obviously taken by a German photographer. I'd love to see hi-quality versions of those photos from the Bundesarchiv and such !

Regarding the Me109, it is a far off project, and rather unlikely. Not a big fan of Axis airplanes either, and I would try to do it crashed, as in the pictures. There is a set of decals for it in 1/48 :

Alex K Two thumbs up! Nice to see someone pay tribute to Roald Dahl! I had noticed for some time, now, your two (Gladiator and Hurricane) Dahl projects. Being particularly interested in his case (thanks to both his service in Greece - and, of course, his books), I hope to some day immitate you in 1/72. Again, congrats!
11. May, 17:47
Boris Belay Hi Alex, Thanks for your message. I researched these planes extensively, and doing so discovered a lot about the British participation in the Greek defence.
Regarding the Squadron code (individual), I could not find anything definitive, so I used a letter that I knew was not used on any known Gladiator. I modified the Roden decals to make a 'T', which was easy enough (even though the Roden decals were very fragile and came apart).
If you need any info on Dahl in Greece, don't hesitateto ask. I tried to get as much as I could before the build.
13. May, 11:20
Alex K Hi again, Boris, much appreciated, I might just take you up on that offer! It was already very interesting to see, thanks to you, a photo of Hurricane V7826! Best of luck for your other projects as well, especially Saint-Ex's Lightning! :)
