Birth of the Jet Engine.
This 2006 version of Corgi's Meteor mold now shows its age, and
may have shown its age when first introduced. The main drawback
with the model, which was introduced during the first five years
of the millenium, is the deep panel lines around the fuselage, over
the wings, and around access doors. The panel lines seem especially
heavy on Corgi jets, such as the Hunter and Sabre.
But, whatever, as the current crop is fond of saying. I really like
the "toy soldier" paint job, meaning, of course, that
the paint is thick and shiny. Other than that, the only reason I
own the two Meteors shown here is that they were on sale at a price
I couldn't pass up. That's probably another sign of creeping...whatever.
