Sea Meteor?

I've just been doing some research on a few Fleet Air Arm aircraft and have come across references to a "Sea Meteor".

Does anyone know anything about this? I can't seem to find any 1/72nd kits of it.

Guess it was just used as a trial or something?

Well I can't seem to find much info about it. Pretty sure it never made it into production otherwise there would be a lot more info on it.

Here's a nice pic of one:

From the web:


"Following deck handling trials with a Meteor prototype in 1945, two Meteor IIIs were fitted with an arresting hook and reinforced landing gear, and used for carrier trials in 1948. The two aircraft performed takeoffs and landings from the HMS Illustrious and HMS Implacable. The Royal Navy was impressed by the navalized Meteor, but decided to obtain the Supermarine Attacker instead."


Would be cool to see one done up in two tone gray of the FAA?
