As part of The Abyssinian Crisis project one of its draw cards was the chance to field (fly) some interwar aircraft in their prime.

No other aircraft IMHO epitomises this era more than the slippery sliver Hawker Fury. Sleek lines in classic silver it is one of the nicest aircraft of the era.

This one had to be in and provides the British forces with some airpower to take on the froggies and italians over Ethiopia….

Here's the my post on the construction along with some pics of the beast…

Very nice model and great report. Your terrain is very impressive also. I've always liked the line of the Hawker Fury.

Which 'froggies' would you expect to encounter over Ethiopia? Just visited the place again in November.

I agree whole-heartedly about the Fury.

How did you model the spinner-disk shadow? Looks great.

Those froggies that decided to side with the Italians in The Abyssinian Crisis…


"How did you model the spinner-disk shadow"

…played around with a photo editor. …kind of blurred the prop edge and dropped a transparent disk shade for effect…worked well for the pic I think. ;-) The model just has the prop as you can see in the post.

Can we get a picture of a Wellesley on a low-level strafing run please?

All the best

The French had Djibouti, which is just adjacent to Abyssinia/Ethiopia. link
