Seafire FR.47 Airfix 1/48

November 27, 2020 · in Aviation · · 17 · 3.5K

Hello everyone,
Its been a while since my last post here. Here is my recently finished FR.47 with some aftermarket addons (engine and cockpit).
I rivetted the model, replaced the canopy (taurus) and did some other improvements. It is not an easy task to install all the additional parts, so i hope you like the final result.

Best regards,

  7. Wow! Spectacular work Igor.
    Fantastic, inside and out!

  8. That looks really good.

  9. What a build. Awesome - and the pictures are small pieces of art too. WELL DONE!

  10. Beautiful work!

    I've heard good things about Rob Taurus canopies. I just ordered two sets from the UK, one for my Ki-43, and one for my Ki-44.

  11. Amazing work. Beautiful attention to detail.

    What company does the Griffon engine?

    • Hello Tom, engine is part of a detail set for Seafire FR46/47 from AIRES (4338). Other parts are wing folds (not used), wheels (not used - to small) and cockpit. Whires and pipes around the engine are made from scratch. On the end, the engine is model for itself.

  12. Beautiful work - I especially like the paint and weathering work you achieved on this.

  13. Absolutely superb! I remember doing this kit many many years ago and to have achieved that result from such moulding is truly impressive!
