Sea Fury x 2 1/48

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Been a long time since I posted here,

These 2 are my most recent completions.

First up is the Trumpeter kit, main wheels changed for resin aftermarket set, area by exhaust corrected with plastic card and filler.

Colour scheme based on early bay of pigs Cuban Sea Fury (based on one of the profiles in the Squadron series of books.) I changed the Airframe number but the rest of the markings follow the profile.

Next up, Hobbycraft with (what was left of !) PP Aerokits aftermarket set, replacement vacform canopy and metal undercarriage

And finally both together,

I originally started the Hobbycraft/ PPaerokits Sea Fury back in '95 but got overwhelmed and put it away. I found it a while ago but the canopy, some of the undercarriage, weapons and other fiddly bits were missing so I used what was left to finish it off,

All the best,

Gary

A lovely pair. Well done on both kits.

Great job on both models :goodjob: Interesting to note how a change of colour scheme can make two otherwise identical aircraft look different.

Two excellent models and clearly shows the dodgy upper forward-deck/nose contours of the Trumpeter kit.

Regards,

Andy

Both are very nicely done, my preference going to the yellow nosed version. I have never seen that set of markings before and I dare say they were ahead of their time! It looks to me like a futuristic USAF emblem.
