Title: 1/72 Gloster Peregrine PR.I
Post by: The Big Gimper on May 16, 2018, 01:34:43 AM
Today marks the anniversary of the first flight of Britain's first jet aircraft, the Gloster-Whittle E.28/39. See the aircraft (without engine) on display in our Flight gallery.

So today is a good day to take the wraps off my Gloster Peregrine PR.I. 

It is Eastern Express/Frog mold. All flying surfaces are from an Airfix P-80C. Recce pod is a modified drop tank.

A very convincing combination of parts that do go together very well.

Thats a great combination of components, looking really cool. A PRU blue finish would look great.

Nice one!

Wow - what a great idea! The P-80C flying surfaces are a perfect match! The required surgery looks far less extensive than I would have expected.
