Airifix A04103 Hawker Fury 1/48

Airfix Model Kit




Bearing the distinction of being of being the first RAF fighter to exceed 200mph in level
flight, the Hawker Fury was one of the most capable fighters of the era until surpassed,
first by the Gloster Gladiator and then by the monoplane Hawker Hurricane and
Supermarine Spitfire. While beatiful and fast, the Fury was also much more expensive
to produce compared to its contemporaries, such as the Bristol Bulldog, resulting in it
seeing only limited frontline service. By the outbreak of World War two, the Fury only
served with the South African Air Force as a front line fighter, the RAF examples having
all been retired to second line duties.
