Hawker Sea Fury - Furias

In the world of madly modifed air racers I present you Furias, a Sea Fury reengined with a R-4360 Wasp Major (28 Cylinders !) Currently owned by Sanders family.

The paint scheme is the one she wore at Reno 2011.

Unfortunately it's right main gear collapsed at Reno 2012 preventing her from racing.

    

I'm on this since mid-August, and I'm glad I'm finally done with it because I need the parts for another project. This was quite a difficult build for me as I had to start with Blind man's Bluff and then rework the parts that are different. Furias is around half a plate longer due to it's bigger engine... And this eventually led to further improvments on BMB.

I like how it turned out yet I don't consider it my best work.

    

Hope you'll enjoy.
