First Among Furies

The Unsung Mk X

Hawker Sea Fury F.Mk 10

Kit No: 48001

Scale: 1/48

Type: Injection Moulded Plastic

Manufacturer: AMG Hannants/Stevens International

The Hawker Sea Fury was the very last in the line of the Hawker piston engine fighter family, being a development of the well regarded Tempest. Introduced in 1947, the Sea Fury went on to see combat during the Korean War as the FB.11, and in turn became the last piston engine fighter in Fleet Air Arm service. Although long since retired from frontline service, the Sea Fury still has a presence within the Fleet Air Arm, with two examples operated by Navy Wings on behalf of the Royal Navy at RNAS Yeovilton.

For many years the Hawker Sea Fury as a 1/48 subject was bypassed by the model industry, with only Hobbycraft producing a kit, which was a little lacking in detail, hence the PP Aeroparts upgrade set, later released by Flightpath. Then Trumpeter produced a kit, which has since disappeared from the market. It is against this background that Ukrainian manufacturers AMG present us with their series of 1/48 Sea Furies, including the Iraqi and associated two seat versions, the first of which is the Mk X.
