New Review: Airfix Hawker Sea Fury FB.II

Recommended Posts

I've had a couple of Trumpeter and the Hobbycraft versions of the Hawker Sea Fury in my growing stash waiting for a rainy-day project to come around.  I really like the brutish appearance of this big five-bladed prop driven monster.  I purchased several Barracuda Studios aftermarket goodies for the Trumpy kit to do a colorful Canadian Navy Artic Research version.  So, when Airfix announced their version of this aircraft, and it came up for grabs from the kit review stash, I jumped at the chance to do a review build as a warm-up for and comparison to the others.  John Noack had been given the Fundekal's Sea Fury Pt. 2 decal sheet at last year's Phoenix Nationals for review.  He emailed an offer to use them as I was in the middle of the build. You can find my concurrent review of that sheet elsewhere on the IPMS Reviews website.  The Sea Fury's colorful history is well known and extensively documented, so let's get on with my build and impressions of this 1/48 scale plastic version.
