Hawker Fury Mk.I – K5674, Historic Aircraft Collection, 2013
1:72 Scale. Length: 4.5”. Wingspan: 5”
The only known surviving Hawker Fury in the world, K5674 is a superb example of what is often called the most beautiful biplane ever. The Fury was as deadly as it was beautiful and became one of the most potent fighters of its day. Capable of over 200 mph, and very maneuverable, the Fury saw service right up to the first few years of World War II. This particular aircraft was sent to South Africa after its service with the Royal Air Force ended in 1940 and was found there by the Historic Aircraft Collection. Painstakingly restored, it once again graced the skies of Great Britain on July 30, 2012.Die-cast metal body

The Hawker Fury was a British biplane fighter used by the Royal Air Force in the 1930s. It was originally named the Hornet and was the counterpart to the Hawker Hart light bomber. The Fury was a fast, agile aircraft and holds the distinction of being the RAFs first operational fighter able to exceed 200 mph in level flight. First flown on March 25, 1931, the Fury I entered service with No. 43 Squadron in May 1931. But, because of the Depression, only a small number of Fury Is were ordered, equipping two more squadrons. The Fury II entered service in 1937 and increased the total number of squadrons to six. The Fury remained in service with RAF Fighter Command until January 1939, by which time it had been largely replaced with Gloster Gladiators and other types, such as the Hawker Hurricane.
