Hi Everyone,

 

This is my first model after having bought so many and not building them over the years, i have alays been hesitant to assemble and paint them and finally decided to give it a go, if you look closely enough you will see several mistakes, I learnt alot with this model and it took longer than I thought it would, I have never filled and sanded before and I learnt what puttys I like and which ones I dont.

 

I didn't like the empty space behind the seat so I scratchbuilt several things based on 2 grainy pictures of that area something i thought i would surely stuff up. Masking was a disaster on several occasions the paint peeled off with the tape.

 

I could talk for ages on it.

I do love a Fury and your's looks particularly good, I like the subtle weathering i don't think they were in service loung enough to get too tired looking. Congratulations on a greart build and thanks for sharing it.

Lovely job. I did one a few years back and really enjoyed it, might do another in the future if the urge comes back.
