1/48 Airifix Sea Fury 808 Sqn RAN

Postby Calum » Thu Apr 11, 2019 12:56 pm

This was built for the 2019 NSW Scale Model Shows "Airfix Cup" .

I chose a aircraft operated by 808 Sqn Fleet Air Arm Royal Australian Navy during the Korean War. This particular aircraft was flown by a New Zealander Lieutenant Guy A Beange . You can read about him here. It damaged by Typhoon Ruth in 1951 and was ditched overboard.

Markings are a combination or masks, kit decals , home made decals and from the Barracuda sheet.

There's more on the build and what I thought of the kit along with more photos over at my blog for those interested. Otherwise here are some photos

Great looking Sea Fury Calum. The base sets it off well too.
