Here are a few pictures of this "practice" Sea Fury. It was rather fun to construct but I would definitely add some aftermarket parts (cockpit, propeller and spinner etc.) for a more detailed machine.

I decided to decal this one in Pakistani markings for sentimental reasons. I used to work with a fellow whose father flew for the Pakistani Air Force. It was once mentioned that he had started out on Sea Fury equipment and then transitioned to jets. So, this one is built to the memory of my friend's father!

Thanks, friends. :-flo

With more effort than I expended a really nice representation of the Sea Fury can come from this kit. Next time I'll get some aftermarket goodies to add to one!

one of my favourite subjects,very nicely executed,well done SAF.Nevertheless, I would recomend a bit of weathering.It would highlight its nice painting you have done.

Thanks friends.

I neglected to weather this one (the only photos I could even find of these Pakistani airplanes were taken in England!) so I did it in "as delivered" condition. Really it was a practice build to see if I will do a better one someday. Funniest part of this build is that I didn't even know I owned the kit until I accidently found it in a moving box from when we relocated years ago.....
