Hawker Sea Fury

Ed Kinney’s 1/32nd scale Fisher Models Hawker Sea Fury.  Ed constructed the resin kit out-of-the-box, and finished it using Model Master enamels.  It’s displayed on a custom made Royal Navy aircraft carrier deck display base, along with a tow tractor and ordnance.

The FB.11 served throughout the Korean War as a ground-attack aircraft, flying from the Royal Navy light fleet carriers HMS Glory, HMS Ocean, HMS Theseus, and the Australian carrier HMAS Sydney. On 8 August 1952, FAA pilot Lieutenant Peter “Hoagy” Carmichael RN downed a MiG-15 jet fighter in air-to-air combat, making the Sea Fury one of the few prop-driven fighter aircraft to shoot down a jet-powered fighter.
