Introduction

The release of the 1/48 Airfix Sea Fury has brought out a number of update sets, photoetch and decals sheets. BarracudaCast has joined in this with a few sets including an updated cockpit, updated metal undercarriage and this set - the engine cowling.

The resin

This is a small set comprising the cowling and the exhaust for the 1/48 Airfix Sea Fury. The cowling is a straight fit of the kit cowling and looks much better. I conducted a trial fit on to the Sea Fury kit I have in the stash and it fits extremely well, unlike the kit parts that needed some trimming and filing. On the first kit I built I needed to trim and file the ends of the cowling to make them fit the fuselage and front end of the cowl.

 

 

Recomendation

I highly recommend this set as it is a straight fit for the kit parts and looks good.
