Hobbycraft 1/48 Hawker Sea Fury F.B.Mk. II
April 19, 2017 in Aviation
Everyone who has built this kit knows how basic it is. My first attempt ended up in the standard paint scheme of the period (grey, duck egg, w/stripes). I bought this kit already started, The fuselage halves, including the prop, were glued together. So much for any interior work. I had seen this “Australian” paint scheme at an air show some time back, and the scheme really appealed to me. I’m reasonably sure the scheme itself, is a “warbird” scheme, with the “polished metal” nose ring, and probably did not exist on actual “in service” aircraft. I had wanted to keep everything as simple as possible, so it was an easy solution. Unfortunately my kit did not have Australian decals. With help from my friend, and fellow iModeler, Jim Gordon, I was able to piece things together. What came out was a fair representation of what I had set out to do. It was a lot of fun, and a quick build.
