For those of us who've seen the Fisher Model and Pattern release of the 1/32 Hawker Sea Fury (reviewed here), it didn't take much convincing for me to buy one. The model is absolutely gorgeous out of the box.
One of the eye-catching features of the Fisher kit is that five-bladed propeller. Not only is this superbly rendered, Paul Fisher hints at his engineering roots with the jig that he also included in the kit. Jig? Heck yes, could you imagine trying to properly place those five blades in three dimensions AND get the propeller pitch correct too?
Well if you're a Hobbycraft 1/32 Sea Fury owner, you're in luck! Fisher Models has released their propeller set for the Hobbycraft kit and provide that nicely shaped spinner, simple prop hub, five individually-cast propeller blades, and that masterful jig.
So now instead of trying to tweak the kit parts, you can simply plug the hub onto the jig, place the blades, hit the hub with a little cyano and Zip Kicker, paint, install the spinner, and move on to the next step.
My sincere thanks to Fisher Model and Pattern for this review sample!
