A48005 / A72008 SEAFURY
I made the Hobby Craft 1/48 Sea Fury a few years ago
straight from the box with the Aeromaster decals. Recently I purchased
another Sea Fury and rather than making another Oxford Blue aircraft
I thought I would go for the standard camouflage scheme. I visited
Snowy Mountain Models and had a look around and stumbled over the Aussie
Decals set. The set contains markings for the following Sea Fury's:
a. Sea Fury VW632/108K 805 SQN 1950, Extra Dark Sea Grey
/ Sky scheme (EDSG/Sky).
b. Sea Fury VX730/109K 805 SQN, HMAS Sydney, Korea, 1951.
c. Sea Fury WH587/105K 805 SQN, EDSG/Sky.
d. Sea Fury WZ646/103K 805 SQN, EDSG/Sky.
e.Sea Fury WH588/114NW 724 SQN, allover Oxford Blue.
f. Sea Fury WH589/115NW 724 SQN, allover Oxford Blue.
g. Sea Fury 253K 'Magnificent Obsession' Australian Warbird,
h. Sea Fury 308K of Guido Zuccoli, Australian Warbird
The set also contains decals to do the canopy lines as
well as some instructions/hints on how to paint the stripes on the
wings and fueslage.
From the Aeromaster set I used the markings to make WH589/115
in all over Oxford Blue. At the time I ran into discrepancies between
wahat was on the instruction sheet and what my references showed as
the paint scheme for the Oxford Blue aircraft. The Aussie Decals set
seems to have no problems with this as they match the pictures from
my references very well. I have used a number of Aussie Decals sets
and they have proved to be good quality and I have had no drama in
applying them to a model.
With the variety supplied on this set I can only recommend
that if you intend to make a Sea Fury in the future that you purchase
them while you still can.
