Airfix Sea Fury FB. 11 - HMS Glory Korean War scheme, Sea Fury reference walkaround action shots Flying Legends -build review part 3

..painting the new-tool 48th Airfix Sea Fury ..and some stills from archive footage taken on board HMS Glory off Korea. This post is completed with some nice reference'action' shots from a Flying Legends air display back in 2006, especially useful for the oil streaking on the lower surfaces..

This British Pathe newsreel looks to be taken from the same Korean War cruise as per the kit decals HMS Glory Korean War scheme as shown on the box top. A single click to view here. Now the kit instructions have the spinner in black - the more I look at this footage the 'less' black it appears...
