Readers’ Gallery: Gil Hodges’ 1/48 Collectaire FJ-3 Fury

Agape forums member Gil Hodges shared this great looking resin Fury. His results were outstanding, despite a few challenges.

First of the year! CollectAire resin kit, OOTB. The kit decals, and their MicroScale backups (VF-173 Rams) were an EPIC FAIL (shattered); so I painted the checks and the blue flash on the fuselage. The rest of the markings are all from the spares box; a combo of regular decals and dry transfers. Ended up being a different scheme than I started out  with, but I like it better I think.
