A dramatic part of British aviation history mounted on a handmade wooden plinth.

This is a very rare, substantial and unusual statement piece for the home or office. 

The Sea Fury was the pinnacle of piston powered Royal Naval aviation and traced it's lineage back through the Typhoon and Tempest. A 2500hp power house, multi-purpose aircraft that was as capable as a fighter with four 20mm cannon as it was as a bomber carrying up to two 1000lb bombs or a complement of up to 16 rockets.

Although the Sea Fury first flew in 1945, it had the misfortune to be introduced into squadron service in 1947 at a time when jet technology was coming of age. Its service life was consequently brief. It was retired from the Fleet Air Arm in 1953, but not before it had played a noteworthy role in Korea where one aircraft shot down a MiG15 jet fighter.

With a maximum speed of c.460mph and superb all-round performance, this sleek and eye catching aircraft has become an icon.

A very few remaining airworthy examples are on the display circuit or are used for racing at Reno.

615 were produced for the Fleet Air Arm with c. 250 more providing good service for the navies of  Canada, Australia and the Netherlands.
