1/48 Airfix Sea Fury

March 4, 2019 · in Aviation · · 24 · 2.9K

Hello everyone,
Just finished my first of this year, actually my only build since last summer, my first time adding anything to the site so I hope it all goes well. This is the kit, I added some steel belts and a new cowl from Aeroparts, paints are a mixture of Tamiya, Gunze, Vallejo and even the odd bit of Humbrol.
Thanks for looking.
