Final builds of the year – Airfix Sea Fury and Meteor FR9

December 31, 2018 · in Aviation · · 16 · 3.3K

Here are a few photos of my final builds for the year (not strictly true but I cant show you the very last one yet!) which are the 1:48 and the Airfix 1:48 Gloster FR.9.

The Sea Fury has the Barracuda wheels and cockpit plus I've added all the missing aerials and replaced the raised rivets with engraved ones. This will be appearing in Model Airplane International in the new year.

The Meteor has just been featured in Airfix Model World and I've used the Eduard photo etch for the cockpit and Eduard Brassin wheels on this one. Hope you enjoy the photos!
