Airfix 1/48 Hawker Sea Fury FB.II, Fuerza Aerea Revolucionaria
Some more Latin-American stuff from my father.
Airfix kit (export version), Quickboost gunsight (kit has none), Eduard Superfabric RAF seatbelts, Barracuda Studios replacement resin cowl, a scratch part for the missing headrest cushion.
Initially intended to use decals from Blackbird Models for the rudder, but the red triangle was too long and you would have had to paint the blue and white stripes anyway. So my dad decided to mask and paint the complete Cuban flag. Only the white stars are decals from a Microscale WW2 US vehicle markings sheet.
Gunze H309 FS34079 and AK Real Color US Interior Yellow-Green used for the camo.
After a bunch of Cuban aircraft were destroyed by airstrikes and an invasion became imminent, the FAR added additional field camo to their remaining aircraft for better ground coverage, each looked different. The colors used are subject of discussions, my dad chose the above ones.
