Bay of Pigs...1/48 Hawker Sea Fury FB.II, Fuerza Aerea Revolucionaria

Recommended Posts

#26/2019

Some more Latin-American stuff from my father.
Airfix kit (export version), Quickboost gunsight (kit has none), Eduard Superfabric RAF seatbelts, Barracuda Studios replacement resin cowl, a scratch part for the missing headrest cushion.
Initially intended to use decals from Blackbird Models for the rudder, but the red triangle was too long  and you would have had to paint the blue and white stripes  anyway. So my dad decided to mask and paint the complete Cuban flag. Only the white stars are decals from a Microscale WW2 US vehicle markings sheet.
Gunze H309 FS34079 and AK Real Color US Interior Yellow-Green used for the camo.

After a bunch of Cuban aircraft were destroyed by airstrikes and an invasion became imminent, the FAR added additional field camo to their remaining aircraft for better ground coverage, each looked different. The colors used are subject of discussions, my dad chose the above ones.

Amazing job! Beautifully painted.

I didn't know that the Cuban's had Hawker Sea Fury aircraft.

A really nice Sea Fury!  One of my favorite piston-driven planes of all time, this one is very cool and somewhat unusual too. 😎 Bravo!  :clap:
