Airfix 1/48 Hawker Sea Fury FB.11 in Cuban Guise
I picked this up recently and got to building quite quickly.
It all fitted very well with very little filler used.
I fancied doing a Cuban version.
Would this version have had The Cuban Flag Tailplane, Bombs and the wing fold utilised.
Probably not but I wanted it this way.

Primed with Tamiya XF-53 Neutral Grey.
Painted with Tamiya XF -62 Olive Drab, X-18 Semi-Gloss Black, XF-85 Rubber Black, Colourcoats Buff masquerading as Hawker Yellow and Extreme Metals Aluminium.
