Hobby Craft 1/48th Hawker Sea Fury FB.Mk.11
I started this build probably near the end of 1989, the year this kit was released. I got as far as airbrushing the Sky Type S paint on to it but stopped and left it on my shelf. As time went by the box and the rest of the parts for this kit disappeared but I did saved the Almark decal sheet that was bought for this build.
Missing to complete this build were the undercarriage's main gear doors, wheels, rear wheel assembly and tail hook. I lucked out and found some parts on eBay. The resin parts (spinner/propeller, drop tanks and lower engine louvers) from Cooper Details, robbed wheels from the Eduard Tempest Mk. V, white metal tail wheel from who knows where and scratch building the main gear doors brought this kit back to live.
After being ignored close to 33 years sitting on a shelf in a dark corner of my basement, I call it done!
