No takers for my story above - not really on point and not edited by the moderators - result.

Martin my mate has noticed that we made the North Wales Pioneer, and sent the story round my rugby chums who commented I was in fancy dress? Something to do with my "pink" shorts. I pointed out, of course, they were peach melba.

Anyway here is the link to the online story **LINK**

I'm not sure how an inflatable sheep relates to PSS? unless you use it for Pneumatic Sheep Soaring (badum-tish etc).

Anybody got any gen on the Hawker Fury prototype and Hawker Iraqi Fury next to it in the picture from the newspaper article? They look tasty smile p

Alan - the models are by Gordon Studley and Martin Gay, a few details and photos on the PSSA Gallery pages - I placed them in the Sea Fury collection as they are so closely related...(I thought the Iraqi one WAS a Sea Fury?!)

Thanks for that Phil.

I suppose technically the Iraqi one is a de-navalised Sea Fury in that they were bought back from the FAA, de-navalised and refurbed before being sold to Iraq. So, they were built as Se Furies but I've mostly seen then referrred to as Iraqi or Baghdadi Furies.

Two smashing models anyway!

Both models were built by Gordon Studley and modified from the original plan with the addition of flaps which gives the option of CROW braking during landing.

The prototype Sea Fury has not yet flown, hopefully during the September meet!

The Iraqi Sea Fury has flown, and it does it very well. It has a huge speed range and tracks through the turns as if it is on rails.

Thanks Martin, that's of interest.

I'll keep an eye out for them in September.
