These are all beautiful work Flitzer. I'm afraid I don't have time to post on all your threads but they're all much appreciated... 8)

It looks like someone just redrew the nose on a set of Meteor blueprints, added another engine to each wing, then changed the scale in the bottom right-hand corner of the plans.

Cheers,

The night fighter Reaper is a natural. :)

The Gloster Jet Bomber looks like a perfect candidate for a scratch build!

I think that Gloster jet bomber is one of your best yet, Flitzer.

How do you manage to keep topping yourself like that?

Incredible!

Gloster jet bomber is great looking.  Love front & side views.
By picking engines from late 40s to today it easily scales to about any size.  Even be big as today's heavies. 
Can be a 4th V-Bomber (first of four?).  B-29 style gun turrets?  Can be a tanker too.  Can be on GB side of Luft 46 scenario.
I would likely buy the kit if there was one.

Yeah, it's starting to remind me of Top Gear jokes about Porsche.

Your latest Gloster makes me think they got advance copies of the plans for the XB-46.
