It has been in the works long enough. Resin, vacu canopy and decals from Miniwing. Cannon fairings courtesy of Master. Brass by Shelf Oddity, which means it is the test article for the brass parts - an awkward way to promote our product and equally awkward way to excuse imperfections. First two photos with my trusty companion, who did the part chopping: and lent a helping brush: Now, the Attacker himself: "We there yet?" For anyone still awake - few WIP photos, focusing on metal bits, because resin parts came together without any fuss: The one showing dorsal bleed doors and boundary layer vents: The one showing boundary layer ramp inside intake (that no one will ever notice): The one showing ventral boundary layer vents along gear struts locks in u/c bays. And the one showing tremendous effort on my part - making a cut through the middle of the tail wheel to make it a twin tail wheel.
I have been building a couple of 1/72nd Hawker Fury kits (Revell nee Matchbox) and am considering building the next one as a Trainer used in 1939/40. I have an old copy of SAM I acquired secondhand at the IPMS Nationals last year with Fury conversions in it - the previous owner had added a handwritten note saying - Fury Trainer - tail wheel from Hurricane - fatter main wheels needed perhaps AreoClub Hector? Looking through my other references I can see no confirmation of the above - can anyone help?
