Super Sea Fury Racer
1/48 scale Sea Fury is available online from Squadron
This time I present my next
Racer. This is a highly modified Sea Fury with the name Dreadnought.
The plane was fitted with
the powerful R-4360 Corncob-engine from P&W, housed in a longer nose and a
4 blade prop from a Skyraider with big spinner. A higher tailplane and a
second air inlet in the wing root completed the modification.
I started with the 1/48 kit
scale kit from Hobbycraft and combined it with the conversion kit from
I added landing gear legs in
white metal from Aeroclub and wheels from True Details. The wheel plates
are scratchbuilt from 0,15 mm plastic. I also refined the tail gear.
The most challenging aspect
was the decals. I painted the plane's name with black ink on a decal film
and sealed it with liquid decal film from Microscale. All other markings
are spares, airbrushed or hand painted.
