  1. I must admit I can't recall seeing that nomenclature before (Seafang?) - at any rate, you've done an outstanding job on this one...I really like the results.

  2. If Captain Brown found it dreadful, then it was. Plus, jets were coming, and prop fighters were fading. So, it became a footnote. Interesting looking aircraft. The Spitfire "look" was harder to see. The wing was used on the jet Attacker, which wasn't a worldbeater, either, but did see squadron service and export to Pakistan.

  3. Adilcan, Its always interesting to see something unusual and or different, and this is one of those. Personally I think its a very cool / tough looking airplane, that's success probably suffered more due to the jet age coming about than anything else.
    A very nice looking build you've done here on a very sporty looking airplane ! I like it !

  4. Very nice job done! Heavy weathering on top is great, I would do a bit more also at bottom surfaces.
    Inspiring build!

  5. Outstanding, Adilcan! Like you, I like the "unusual" types as well as the more famous planes.

  6. Very nice! Had never heard of the Seafang, but see that AZ Models makes one in 1/72, so I'll add to my stash soon! Love the weathering.

  7. Beauty. I love the finish. I did my Trumpeter Wyvern like this

  8. Adilcan, I missed this when you posted it. This is a beautifully presented build and I'd love you to post a WIP to follow your styling. Go on, do it, please.
