  1. 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 sister ship that had a slight different dayglo pattern on the wings. So she is a machine that was based at Glynco. I had to scribe the panels - my first attempt ever! Weathered with Flory Dirt. All paints are Humbrol enamel. Words of warning? 1. if you go for the Pavla set the canopy is out of scale and too large. I kept the front end from the kit and added the rear sliding portion from the Pavla. Not the best but hey ho! 2. the undercarriage legs are so, so fragile. For the nose gear I set the leg in a small block of sprue and then added the supporting strut from Plastruct round .8mm rod. 3. the wheels are from a F-86H (Special Hobby). Not completely accurate but better than the flimsy kit option. 4. change the nosewheel light within the door to the opposite side and at the bottom 5. open up the intake fully. I then used a modified inlet duct from a Heller F-86 to give it depth. Not my best. Martin
  2. 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!
