MiG Alley Sea Furies and Firefies Finished





I finally wrapped up the 1/600th scale Tumbling Dice Hawker Sea Furies and Fairey Fireflies this afternoon, using a combination of Dom's Decal roundels and I-94 lettering. They are marked up as aircraft flying of 825 Squadron (Fireflies) and 802 Squadron (Hawker Sea Furies) flying from HMS Ocean c1952-53. I am quite pleased with the end result overall, especially as I thought I'd stuffed up the ID bands, so I may well add some more Fleet Air Arm planes to the mix at a later date including some of the short lived Supermarine Sea Fires. I've also got a plastic injection kit of HMS Ocean herself to assemble in 1/1600th scale.

  3. Thanks chaps,

    In the end they didn't turn out to be as fiddly to paint as I thought.

    B29's next...then I'm pretty much done and dusted?
