    1/48th scale Hawker Sea Fury FBII, 807 Naval Air Sqn, Fleet Air Arm, HMS Theseus, Korea, 1951.

    Username: Airframes.
    Name: Terrius Lethargicus.
    Category: Judge- non competing.
    Kit. Hobbycraft
    Scale: 1/48th.
    Accessories: True Details resin wheels, Falcon vac-form canopy, Airwaves pe wing fold, RPs from spares box, scratch-built cockpit detail and seat harness, other scratch-built bits and pieces.

    At last, after nearly two months of lethargy, stiff hands and lack of motivation, I've managed to finish the Sea Fury.
    I had a bit of trouble with 'lumpy' paint when finishing the drop tanks, and then a dust problem with the clear coat on the tanks, prop and spinner, but these can be rectified at a later date.
    I'm afraid the photos aren't up to standard, as my hands, neck and shoulders are so stiff I was having difficulty holding the camera, but at least it's finished (for now), and I can now move on to concentrating on the commission build, and getting some of the initial work done on the 1/32nd scale Hawk.
    Thanks for all your encouragement and interest during this prolonged build. Here's the six mandatory shots, and some 'messing about' pics.

    What a beaut Terry! Nice to see this one finally done and to such good quality. And those pics are great too, despite your misgivings!

    Thanks very much indeed chaps. It's not as good as it could be in the final areas built, and I'm not completely happy with it. I'm going to remove the tanks and prop and re-do them, when my hands are working better!

    Thanks very much for the kind words chaps, it's very much appreciated. Hopefully I can now get back in the groove and get down to some more modelling.
    Vaughan, the photos of the sunsets etc were done the old fashioned way - posed against suitable pics on my monitor screen, with a small, hooded 'key light' off to one side, at an angle. I should have really used a tripod, rather than hand held, but my hands were so stiff I couldn't operate the tripod head release catch!
    Forgot to add - my part of the judging is part way through; with a bit of luck, we might have the results in the next couple of weeks, when all returns to normal.

    Terry that's a great system using a monitor screen is very effective.

    I did not know the last shot was a photo. I thought it was a painting and you posed your model to match it.

    I see you have done it again Terry, an absolute stunner and great sunset adaptation.

    Happy New Year to you mate, I hope you get a better one this time round.
