Available via Fantasy Printshop, Euro Decals has released markings for Gloster Meteor FR.9s in 1/72 and 1/48 scales.

The former (ED-72116) would be ideal for Special Hobby’s kits, while the latter (ED-48116) are suitable for Airfix’s recently released quarter-scale offering and retail for £8.95 and 13.95 respectively. The high-quality markings feature strong colour density and sharp colour delineation, with separate red centres to the roundels to avoid any register issues. Each sheet contains sufficient items for eight schemes, offering a mixture of Dark Green/Dark Sea Grey/PRU Blue, overall High Speed Silver and Light Slate Grey/Medium Sea Grey/PRU Blue airframes:
