I think just about everyone remembers that scheme from the only FS9 model around for years. Glad to see someone put brush to texture and brought it back. . .nicely done!!
Here's my contribution - WH589 as she was when last operated from RANAS Nowra. This dark blue livery appears to have only been used by the RAN on some remaining Sea Furies for a short time in the early 1960's, yet two or three survivors have appeared wearing it. It looks impressive though; maybe I should put stars and bars on it as a fictional US Navy paint.....!!
Still a WIP - may put it out next week sometime.
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.
That is awesome! Through the three examples in the last two screenshots, the repaints I had in mind for this product are almost completely settled for. : )
I'm looking forward to all of them, thank you Allan and Dave! And thank you too, to the 'other' Dave, for the prototype repaint! ; )
Nice work Dave!!
It's great to see the schemes beyond the common RN, RCN, etc.

Well I'm really liking these!:
Not yet John, but I hope Huub Vink will upload them soon!
This aircraft is just so much fun throwing about the sky, as you can tell from many of the screenshots in this thread.
G-CBEL is almost there
The Royal Netherlands Naval Air Service had several SeaFury squadrons, which rotated over the land based stations and our only aircraft carrier the Karel Doorman. The first series aircraft were constructed by Hawker, by the majority was licence built by Fokker.
The 10-10 in the early scheme as it was delivered by Hawker in May 1948. This aircraft was demolished in January 1956.
The 10-20 in pattern 2 scheme as it flew from NAS Valkenburg in 1950. The white spinner shows this aircraft belongs to VSQ 3. The aircraft belonged to the second batch delivered by Hawker in July 1950 and was demolished in Juni 1956.
The 6-26 from VSQ860 flying over the Waddenzee. This aircraft was flown by LtZ K. den Hamer in 1956. During his conversion to the Fairey Firefly this pilot was killed in a crash close to NAS Valkenburg in February 1957.
I will make a package containing all repaints and upload it as soon as possible. The images above are all work in progress and the final repaints are different in details.
As I know John (Bomber) loves repaints from aircraft which still exist, I will do the 6-43 specially for him. After it became obsolete this aircraft has been given to the Technical University in Delft and survived. It has been preserved and is currently on display in the Military Aviation Museum .
