Xtradecal has recently released a 1/48 scale decal sheet for the Hawker Sea Fury FB.11, which will be suitable for either the new Trumpeter kit or the older Hobbycraft offering.

A nice selection of markings and colour schemes are included for British, Australian and Canadian Sea Furies. Three of the four subjects are finished in standard Sky lower surfaces and Exra Dark Sea Grey on the top of the wings, tailplane and aircraft spine.

Specifically, the subjects are:

  • Sea Fury FB.11 WZ632/155 804 NAS British Fleet Air Arm 1953

  • Sea Fury FB.11 WH587/105 805 NAS Royal Australian Navy, Nowra NSW, 1950

  • Sea Fury FB.11 VW225/117 870 Sqn. Royal Canadian Navy, Dartmouth 1950s. This Sea Fury is finished in the unique Canadian scheme of Light Grey lower surfaces and Dark Grey uppers. It also features a white star outlined in black on the spinner. There are no decals or guides for this star, so it will just be you, your masking tape and a steady hand to see you through! Very attractive scheme though.

  • Sea Fury FB.11 VX688 AA-A 883 Sqn. Royal Canadian Navy, Dartmouth 1950s

Sufficient national markings are supplied for both Canadian machines and one of the RAF and FAA Sea Furies. Stencil markings are not provided.

The colours of the markings look spot on, as does registration on my sample. Decal film is nice and thin, and my previous experience with Xtradecals is that they are trouble free in application and quite opaque even over dark paint.

Instructions are in full colour with large side profiles plus smaller top plan and bottom views of each aircraft. Colour notes are also supplied, along with model paint callouts for Xtracolor enamels and Xtracrylix acrylics.

Whether you have an old Hobycraft kit in your stash (probably still a worthy contender), or you have bought the new Trumpeter kit with its bells and whistles, Xtradecal's new Sea Fury decal sheet will help individualise your kit on the competition tables or your display shelf.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Hannants for the review sample

Xtradecals are available online from Hannants' website
