Hello Here we go with another Airfix Sea Fury. I did consider purchasing another kit, but presently this is the only Hawker kit I have so I am being a good boy and not buying anything else. I am lucky that my kit appears to have none of the moulding faults of some kits. I am planning on doing a Canadian machine off HMCS Magnificent off the newly released Fundekals decal sheet, which I plan on ordering over the weekend. Some photos. http://www.fundekals.com/seaFury.html
Paul E posted a topic in Work in Progress - MaritimeThis is a procrastination project whilst I sum up the courage to make the PE for my model of HMS Somerset. It is also stage 1 in a stash reduction exercise and a refresher for working with resin, something which I have not done for a long time and want to be comfortable with before I build my Christmas present. The starting point for this is the Dodo Models kit which I ordered from E-bay: http://www.dodo-models.com/ and this is a photograph of the real thing; and links to the Royal Canadian Navy website: http://www.navy-marine.forces.gc.ca/en/fleet-units/mcdv-home.page There is even a paper model: http://www.navy-marine.forces.gc.ca/en/navy-life/youth-paper-models.page Going back to the Dodo Model, the kit is very comprehensive and highly detailed considering the scale of 1:700. This is going to be an entirely out of the box build (with probably one or two minor enhancements) which hopefully won’t take too long for me to do. The following photos show the model kit components: This is a 1:700 scale model so some of the parts are incredible small and it will be a challenge not to lose items to tweezer ping and the dreaded carpet monster. Update of progress to follow shortly:
