could do with a good 1/32 Sea Fury although the fisher one is great but a bit pricey so if we can get one for the same price as the Tempest put me down for one.

Since the Whirlwind is nearly there, perhaps Special Hobby will tackle the 1/32 version of the Sea Fury since they have the Tempest line already?

Thoughts?

It’s a nice thought, but I’m not sure the Sea Fury would end up with any parts in common with the Tempest kit, even the Tempest Mk. II.

Tempest and Sea Furies are very different aeroplanes that look similar.

I guess only Special Hobby can do that. But granted the Tempest is of course different from the Sea Fury, even though they "look" similar at first glance. The Whirlwind is of course a very special kit as well from what we've seen thus far. The Sea Fury appeals to me as the Dutch also flew it during the Golden Years  of Dutch Naval Aviation (with an Aircraft Carrier, HMS Karel Doorman), between 1948-1955. Then the Sea Hawk entered Dutch service (also a great topic to tackle by Special Hobby by the way in 1.32).
