Hobbycraft | HC1583 | 1:48 | Hawker Sea Fury F. B. Mk.II

Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by to view my latest build #12 the Hawker Sea Fury F. B. Mk.II.

I build straight 'out-of-the-box' endeavouring to show the build journey in as few photographs as possible - this is my reason for utilising montage imagery to help reduce the image count of an album.

I hope that the you find my build journey informative and helpful.

Thanks Nathan for your kind comment. Picked up on a known auction site for £5, hours of fun later, result as above! Love the old kits! ?

That's fantastic, and I built it when I was a teenager back in the day. It looked no-where near as good as this though!👍

Thanks James - I appreciate your kind comment and though was never aware of this kit - I am also reliving my youth in these vintage builds! Ha! Ha!

Hobbycraft tried hard to get some detail happening in their kits, and your rendition has done that attempt a great result in showing just how much 'grunt' these sea fury birds had. 👍
Your attention to detail is well noted and admired. 👍 🙂
Cheers. 👍

I tried building the Hobbycraft DO-17, gave up and almost threw it across the room. Nothing fit right and the landing gear was virtually impossible (for my abilities). I replaced all the Hobbycraft kits in my collection with newer ones. Hats off to you bro! Wonderful job!

Hi Rich K. Yeah, agreed they're not the best. Rather ridiculously maybe!? I've set myself the task of building; rather than collecting all these older kits out of the box... I must be a madman! Ha! Ha! Thanks very much for your comment ? very kind of you ?
