MF's Hawker Fury Mk1

Recommended Posts

Another job I was avoiding tackled today - cutting the exhaust stub holes in the cowl.

First the holes are marked out using a vinyl mask

Then cut away - 1mm chain drilled first then opened up with permagrit files. Finished with 600 grit paper fixed on a length of dowel

Not as difficult as I had first thought it would be

Now where's my thin lithoplate wink

A quick update - exhausts in progress.

Followed same procedure as Danny, former made up from 2 lengths of dowl seperated by a hardwood strip then filled and sanded smooth. The formed strips of lithoplate were treated to a coat of Alclad exhaust manifold colour.


And installed - I fixed a small balsa clock on the cowl inside for the exhaust stub to sit on. Stubs fixed with a blob of silicon sealant.

What a wonderfull model. You are to be congratulated on the level detail acheived. Words not good enough.

Could you tell me what MR foam is, as refered to in the construction of the wheels/tyres please.

I am really envious. I wish I had your skills and patience.

Hi Basil, thanks for the kind words.

The foam used for the wheels is from Mick Reeves.

You can find it on his website in the accessories section.



Really great service and advise from Mick and Jim.


Hope this helps

Tackled the markings. Roundels use warbirds color paint. probably not the correct shade as I have used matt. Quite please, not too much colour bleed.

The underwing identification markings are Tamiya acrylic flat black.

Not very glamorous shots but show the effect.
