  1. Hello all, Today I've started on a new set of builds to add to my British collection while I wait for parts and paints to arrive for the Stranraer and a few other builds I have yet to post. Among others, I have a Persian Fury, Avro 504, and P-47 in the works. The classic Matchbox kits are some of my favorites, as they can produce a great model with little work, or can be upgraded as the builder wishes. The Siskin, Gladiator, and Fury have to be my favorites, and so armed with one each of the Gladiator and Fury and 2 of the Siskin, I've set out on a Triple Build.
  2. Good evening all, Today I have for your viewing another of the venerable Matchbox Hawker Fury's, built as the kit provided option of a Royal Yugoslavian Air Force machine. As typical of the kit, it built well. My only additions were some internal framing that is no longer particularly visible, and a fuselage number 81 as seen on a Kora decal sheet. Without an actual photo, it's accuracy is unknown, but I wanted to break up the flat silver finish. And yes, the Matchbox kit is accurate with these markings. While most Yugoslav Fury's had a different radiator and landing ge

  4. FJ-2 Fury Upgrade Set & Seatbelts (for KittyHawk kit) 1:48 Eduard The new FJ-2 Fury from Kitty Hawk is the first one in this scale, now Eduard are along with an update set and seatbelts for the kit. Update Set (491076) This set comprises two sheets of PE, one of which is nickel-plated and painted, the other bare brass. The first item is a complete make over for the kit seat with a new seat pan, foot rests, head area and various fittingsm, as well as new rails for the seat to sit on. There is also a new instrument panel, side consoles, and ca
  5. Hi, does anyone know if Iraqi Sea Furys carried underwing armament (RPs or bombs)? Perhaps unsurprisingly I am finding it difficult to find pics. Thanks
  6. Hi Chaps I dislike individual tracks on kits. Could I use the tracks off the 1/35 italeri fury on the Dragon Firefly because as I see it they are both the extended length tracks. The Fury kit has 2 sets of tracks so both kits can be built if I rob one set for the Firefly. Many thanks in advance Rodders
  7. Corrected & improved HobbyBoss kit with Aires cockpit, Eduard Bullpups and EagleStrike decals. Hope you like it Best regards from Czech. Andrew
  8. Hawker Fury and Nimrod Warpaint No.116 Guideline Publications Developed from the Hawker F.20/27 prototype the Fighter Fury would use the same Rolls-Royce Kestrel as fitted to the light Bomber the Hart. It was initially called the Hornet and was purchased by the Air Ministry in 1930, the later production aircraft would be called the Fury as the Air Ministry wanted aircraft names which reflected ferocity! Due to the depression only small numbers were ordered at first. The Fury was to be the first RAF Fighter to exceed 200mph in level flight. The aircraft was very ag

  10. Why build this? Basically it’s @Sabrejet fault because he asked 'why there were so few builds of the FJ-2, FJ-3 Furies' after all the hullabaloo, and my eyes got drawn towards the stash. Not a FJ-2 or -3 or a -3M but this: The plastic sprue was virtually free of any flash, had fine engraved panel lines and exquisite recessed riveting, I only hope I can keep the paint layers fine enough to see this detail. The PE is for the cockpit detail and parts of the undercarriage, and looks pretty good. The resin parts are the intake/ front wheel well combo, main
  11. Started to gather drawings and data for this a/c. The kit gives you the option for a canopy open but I read somewhere that some detail is missing with the rear of the canopy? Can anybody help? Does anybody any decals for the a/c as the kit I've got is a reserve unit and I would an operational unit? Thanks. Stuart
  12. Hi Guys, today a recent Build of this nice little Bird which was a real Pleasure to build. Superb Decals and a nice colourful Version Revell offered. Paints are Agama Silver and Alu from Model Master, done by Brush as allways. I hope you like this Bird. Kind Regards Stefan
  13. Any sign of one being produced? I don't really fancy starting my Falcon vacform .......Then again, maybe I should! It might urge somebody to produce one! It is the only member of the Sabre/Fury family not offered :(. Martin
  14. Hi all, It's been a while since I was last here posting, although I have been lurking. Life got in the way as is often the case, but thought I'd try and reinvigorate my interest in the hobby stuff with the Italeri M4A3E8 Sherman "Fury". Now, I've been thinking of doing a Sherman for sometime, but as my other armour has all been Op Telic British stuff and more recently the fantastic Tamiya MkI Male kit, I had wanted to do a British Sherman Firefly. However, one day in my local store I saw this kit, and in the absence of anything British I bought it. No research, nothing. Man, do I r
  15. OK it's time for one of "those" builds The NA FJ-3 Fury has long been a fave of mine - I mean effectively its a Navalised F-86, but it's got Gloss Sea Blue on it - so what is not to like??? Now when I say, "effectively it's a Navalised F-86", that's a little understatement, because actually there's a fair bit of work to do on Esci's 1980s era model to make it look right. Before I go further, I'm going to say this straight off: Without the excellent blog site of Tommy Thomason ( Tailspin Turtle on BM) this project would be a non-starter. Tommy provides free, modeller friendly info which en
  16. Hi Everyone, So today I'm starting my project log for my Fury inspired diorama build. This will be my first build in over 20 years so please go easy with me . I started the Sherman a few weeks ago and as such I have no photos from the start of the build, all I have is from the stages before primer and top coat, however the Tiger 1 only arrived today so hopefully I can give a build log for that at least. Anyways without further delay, onto the build log. So the two kits that I am using for this are as follows: Italeri M4A3E8 Sherman "Fury"
  17. Hi all, As quick post of my completed Fury. It has taken me a while and has been a pig to build, as those of you who have tried it will know. It is so fragile in places! But, of course, it is the only option in gentlemen's scale. I got the markings from a small shot of her in Steve Ginter's book and home printed them. I added a Pavla cockpit set and tail pipe. The only other addition was a set of canopy rails from Plastruct square rod.I started by attempting the machine depicted in the Print Scale set but gave up as they are atrocious and too large. So I went for a sis
  18. Hi all, An appeal to any builders of this kit to ask for any advice before I start the build. I have the Pavla cockpit set as well as the resin tail pipe. My area of concern is really the wheels. Is there an alternative? Has anyone found anything similar from another kit that could work? My first job is rescribing so I have time to pull together as much guidance as you can offer. thanks in advance. Martin Building Sabres one by one!
  19. Hi all, After my current set of builds I want to add a Fury to the collection of Sabres. I have just invested in the Falcon vacform kit to go with a Fujimi F-86F-30 (short 6-3 wing) but having received it I am tempted to try and blend the key parts to the Fujimi fuselage rather than simply using the entire vacform one. Any thoughts? It looks like the rear end at least of the FJ-3 was pretty much an F-86F? I'd appreciate your thoughts. Thanks. Martin
  20. Hi, Over the past few weeks I've put this little collection of 1/72 scale 1930's fighters of the RAF together. They are a mixed bag of Airfix and Matchbox kits, some old, and some new. I must admit, they have all been a pleasure to build. Some of the kit decals couldn't be rescued owing to their +40 years age, but on the whole they went on ok. Additional decals came from friends half-used sheets. Thank you John and Chris. These aircraft certainly add a little colour to the display shelf. I have a couple more to build, but so far the collection includes: Airfix - Demon, Bulldog, Gladiator
  21. Hi, Hawker Spanish Fury was a modification of Hawker Fury (I) . Out of planned production of about 50 only three of them saw combat in SCW. From outside it had different cooler and undercaridge adopted from Gloster Gladiator (I heard it that way - please corect if I am wrong). Now A-model is producing such kit, but mine is scratch converted from Matchbox kit - well ... - fourty years ago, in 1975.... I was 16. OK, still it was quartary... Markings are from 1938, where "4-1" was reconstructed by canibalization of wrecks of original "4-1" and "4-2". My original build was without
  22. Gee this GB came around a bit quicker than I had hoped/planned for! I had a hard time planning what I wanted to build, originally planned a Luftwaffe Sabre or Sabre Dog, Hartmann’s F-86 of JG 71 “Richthofen” does look fantastic!! Hmmmm a later project I think!!! But then I can across the Grand Phoenix FJ-4B Fury, looks cool and plenty of resin, I just had to build it. (I bet no one noticed I had the wrong box photo here!!!) Not sure which scheme yet, the grey one certainly looks interesting....but I have 5 lovely resin Bullpups! I have just about finally finished the Heinkel s

  25. Had this one on the on and off for a couple of weeks, Only the second biplane I have ever rigged and the first 1:72 This was mainly a test run to see what pitfalls lay ahead when I tackle Airfix's new 1:72 Gladiator. I'm not entirely happy with this one but at least I know what to do on the next. And finally one for scale Thanks for looking
