Airfix 1/48 Hawker Sea Fury

Yet another kit has found its way onto the bench as I’m keeping myself busy while I’m furloughed, this time it is the Airfix 1/48 Hawker Sea Fury and an aircraft I have been wanting to build for a long time.
There are other 1/48 Sea Furies available but they all have lots of issues so when Airfix released theirs a year or so ago I grabbed one and now seems a good time to start it.
So far I am just about to close up the fuselage. I used a Barracuda resin cockpit as the Airfix cockpit is OK but they missed out the gun sight and floor-mounted cockpit however as the cockpit colour is black, once the fuselage is joined together you won’t see much of it anyway.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
