Hello,

Does anybody have any pictures of the Meteor that was flying with Metrovick F.2s in 1943?

I have a dying urge to fit Metrovick F.3s of 4300lb thrust ea and longer nacelles to the Meteor in order to combat Luft46.

Thanks
 
From James Goulding "Interceptor" ISBN 0 7110 1583 X (a masterpiece)

DG204 was the only F9/40 to fly with Metropolitan-Vickers F2 axial-flow gas-turbines, potencially the most advanced gas-turbines then under test.

Regards,

Antonio

Many thanks.

It might prove more problematic than I thought to use F.3s instead. Have to remodel the nacelles.

Thanks Overscan. The cutaways from Flight are great. IIRC they are putting their entire collection online, which is about 75% of all aircraft types in the world. It'll just take them time.

I'll see if this works, but this is my model of the F.2 MetroVick Meteor

That's got to be one of the first rear-fan turbofan designs. I wonder if the F2 nacelle could be modified or if a much modified "standard" Meteor nacelle would work? Personally, I consider the Beryl F.s-powered Meteor to be the most aesthetically appealing version.
 
Does anyone have a good quality three-view drawing about this plane?
