War Aircraft Replicas Hawker Sea Fury
The scale Hawker Sea Fury is built around a plywood box core and covered with styrofoam and fiberglass. Plans have been produced for this and two other ½-scale World War II replicas by War Aircraft Replicas. All use the same common wooden fuselage box and wing spar construction in order to duplicate the various fighters aircraft. Polyurethane foam is shaped and covered with high-strength fiberglass cloth and laminating epoxy resin to form a rigid, yet light structure. Landing gears are of air/oil oleo type, with either electrical or manual retract and have a built-in emergency release. Engines vary from 65 hp to 125 hp, which accounts for variations in performance. Authentic three and four bladed props are available.
Features fully retractable landing gear, sliding canopy, and detachable wings.
The first, G-BLTG, flew on 24 February 1986.
