Please tell me

Hi there,

The moment I placed my Connie on the very last shelf of the display cabinet I promised myself it was the final one.
Now we are one month further in time and (blood is as thick as water) I sit down staring at six planes as the very first jet fighters at the end of WW2.
But, which one ?
Please give me a hand/hint...
Kind regards,

Gerard

I'd think the lower middle, the Capporoni. Most others are already well represented.

Start at upper left, work down and to the right. There are no bad choices in this lot!

Since my dad built aircraft for McDonnel, I lean toward the upper left. Is that Phantum 1 or Banshee?

Looks like a Banjo to me.

No need to decide. Just get six shoe boxes to hold parts, and build them all at the same time. If Paperfan can build 4 battleships simultaneously, you can do six planes!

Ummm? A little Brit. would appear to be missing from your picture.

Wikipedia ... The Gloster Meteor was the first British jet fighter and the Allies' only jet aircraft to achieve combat operations during the Second World War.

Apparently the DH Vampire didn't quite make it into "active combat" service.

My vote is the Caproni Campini N1. Hardly ever seen as a kit, and, like the Coanda, very little known.

Kind and Respectful Regards, Uyraell.
