What a treat to finally see aircraft from the RAF’s ‘Silver Period’ in diecast form. The Fury, one of the most handsome fighters of its time, has been honoured well by Hobbymaster, with a wonderful silver dope paint scheme, and trademark black and white cheques of the RAF’s 43 Squadron. Very fine wire portrays rigging, and the metal-edged wood-effect prop is a gem. Superb!
