The Gloster Meteor, Britain's first jet-powered fighter and the Allies' only operational jet aircraft during World War II, holds a special place in aviation history. First flown in 1943, it represented a significant leap in aviation technology with its twin jet engines. While it saw limited action in WWII, it gained prominence in the post-war years, particularly in the Korean War.

Notable variants of the Meteor include the F.3 (early operational version), F.8 (mainstay of RAF Fighter Command in the 1950s), and NF.11 (night fighter version). Each model of the Meteor showcases advancements in jet technology and its adaptability to various roles, from air defense to ground attack, making it a subject of great interest for aviation historians and model collectors.
