Airfix 1/48 Hawker Fury.

Hi all, hope you like. Sorry for the average pics. 1931 RAF Fury. I’m getting into inter war biplanes. Some lovely colourful types coming up soon, once I can find them on ebay etc. Lol. And again… The shot is upside down, and I can’t fix it. Time for aerobatics..,,:)

5 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  1. Can help a bit with the rotated picture. Just curious, is this the case of uploading the images from iPad/iPhone? Or else, curious to learn which camera and computer device(s) you were using.

  2. Nicely built Paul, Airfix have upped their game in recent years.

  3. I like this, Paul, in spite of your image issues (which no doubt Martin will help with). I can’t think of a single inter-War aircraft that isn’t appealing as a model, RAF that is, and I look forward to more in this style. I know these aircraft look more like WWI leftovers than anything ‘modern’, and were comically under-powered and under-armed, but that’s part of the appeal: scrappy and don’t know when to quit.

  4. That prop appears [strangely] out-of-scale….optical illusion? Nice paint job, btw.

  5. beautiful work, Paul! I especially like the propeller, it looks really good! i finished one of these this past january, i will have to post pictures of it soon! Yours looks magnificent!

  6. Love the Fury!. And it looks better in camo if you ask me. DID YOU KNOW these things had 3 credited kills in WW2? IIRC all Italian tri-motor types, including one in kenya, when 2 South African pilots sunning themselves got aloft in their shorts only and bought one down. Great model, got to get to mine.

  7. Great Fury! As Craig mentioned – the blades look out of scale on your pics, however the wood pattern on them is impressive. Very nice paint job.

  8. Paul,
    I would have commented on this sooner but I threw my back out looking at the photos. Aside from that, I love it. I think the Fury is a great looking airplane and I like it in camo. I like how you painted the prop.

  9. A very nice Fury, Paul. Its always good to see older kits, especially in this quality !

  10. It certainly has a charm all of its own, nice job, Paul.
