Sea Fury model. Commander Peter 'Hoagy' Carmichael. 802 NAS, 1952, Korea
Commander Peter 'Hoagy' Carmichael was leader of a flight of Sea Fury's that was bounced by a larger flight of MiG 15's while on patrol over Pyongyang. Although theoretically outclassed (certainly outpaced) by the jets, the piston engined Sea Fury's put up a good fight, saw them off and Schmoo Ellis claimed a rare 'piston engine beats jet' victory.
This is a very detailed diecast model of an aircraft which, had it been in production a few years earlier, would no doubt have achieved legendary status.
