Gloster Meteor became the first combat jet fighter aircraft used by the Allies during the WWII. During the rapid development of the jet technology during the war and right after its end Meteor also served as a test bed for various jet engines trials. One of the Meteor versions that doesn't fit into the latter description is Meteor Trent, which was a propeller powered Meteor. Machine EE227 was converted from Meteor Mk.I; the turboprop Trent units driving five bladed propellers were installed in the wing. To ensure directional stability two small auxiliary fins towards the outboard ends of the tailplanes were installed, also the undercarriage was heightened. The World's first turboprop fighter aircraft took off for the first time on September 20, 1945. The kit contains three sprues with grey plastic parts, injected canopy and detailed resin parts. Decals included contain markings for EE227 prototype.
