    Sword FJ-2 Fury

    Since I've been babbling on in other threads about the FJ Fury fighters and the odd bit about the new Sword kits, I thought I should put my money where my mouth is and post a WIP. So here it is - the FJ-2 kit for now. First off the box/marking options/sprues etc: There's been enough discussion about which wing it is, which F-86 aftermarket bits you can use (none) and so on, and a lot of it doesn't really matter: it looks like an FJ-2 and as I build it, I will be correcting and adding bits as I feel I want to. Yes there are a couple of clunky bits, but call me a masochist but I like doing a bit of fettling: it shouldn't be too easy after all! So no aftermarket bits (so far) - but that's mainly because as I write there are none. Here are the fuselage halves, which as you can see exhibit some strange lumps which shouldn't be there: Nothing that a scalpel and/or some 800-grit won't get rid of. So with that done, I opened out the tail hook, speed brakes and LH step/ammo door. Also chopped the wings because I thought it might look different with wings folded. I dare say the aftermarket will render these items in resin but I shall me scratch-building these bits. I then tacked the major bits together: This is where a couple of 'fettling' areas showed up - notably the wing trailing edges and the join between the aft centre wing and fuselage: But again, nothing major and with a similar (but lesser) step at the front end of the wing centre section I filed/scraped until I got a nice join, which will probably need no filler: And then a bit of work on the speed brake wells: You'll note that I've narrowed-down the hinge slots (compare to above) after I got a bit carried away with the file! Haven't decided what colour scheme to go with yet - I do fancy a dark blue or gull gray scheme but who knows? I've done a bit more than this but that's all the photos I have for now.
