About this Plan

Hawker Sea Fury Mk11. Radio control scale model fighter. Scale is 1/7.

Discontinued kit from Top Flite. For a snapshot of the old listing for this kit on the (now-defunct) Top Flite website, see: https://web.archive.org/web/201109... which also links to a kit review from RC Excellence.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Hello, Maybe someone will see the photos and post a better pdf of the plans? This is just something I created to have on file for the model. Best wishes & please be safe,"

Note manual includes vector drawings of the kit plan sheets, on pages 69 and 70. Presumably these could be scaled up to full size.

Quote: "Congratulations and thank you for purchasing the Top Flite Gold Edition Hawker Sea Fury. The Sea Fury is the type of plane that makes an ideal scale model no matter what the size (we can’t take all the credit for a great-flying model!). Because of its large wing area and long tail moment, you’ll find that the Sea Fury is stable and predictable in the air. Additionally, this Top Flite Gold kit incorporates airfoils specially designed for Top Flite’s warbirds (S8036 at the root and S8037 at the tip). These airfoils provide slower stall speeds and gentle stall characteristics making Gold Edition kits among the friendliest flying warbirds around!

When it comes to construction, the high number of die-cut parts minimizes carving and fitting, while complete instructions guide you through every detail. Without adding any additional scale details you’ll end up with a model that very much represents a Hawker Sea Fury. With a little research and some scale documentation you can go 'all-out' and make your Sea Fury a show-winning model.

Decsisions you must make: This is a list of items required to finish the Sea Fury that must be purchased separately and require a bit of decision making ahead of time. Order numbers (in parentheses) are provided for your convenience.

ENGINE RECOMMENDATIONS: The official engine size recommendation range for the Sea Fury is .61 to .91 cu. in. [10.0 to 15.0cc] two-stroke or .91 to 1.2 cu. in. [10.0 to 19.8cc] fourstroke. Our first Sea Fury prototype was flown with an O.S.® FS-.91 Surpass™ II (OSMG0896) which was more than enough power. Our second prototype (and the model featured in this instruction manual and on the kit box cover–weighing-in at eleven pounds) was flown with an O.S. .61 FX (OSMG0561). Please take this advice:

The Sea Fury does not need to be overpowered. Even 'all-up' with flaps, retracts, cockpit kit and pilot, the .61-powered model flew best at about half to three-quarters throttle and had plenty of reserve power for scale maneuvers such as loops, chandelles and steep climb-outs. If you already happen to have a larger engine, it could be used in this model (as long as it is within the size recommendation). But, if you are still deciding which engine to purchase, a strong .61 two-stroke or a .91 four-stroke is highly recommended. Flying the Sea Fury with a 1.20 may be within the size recommendation, but an engine of this size does approach overkill, so prudent throttle management must be exercised. Remember, this is a scale model that is intended to fly in a scale-like manner.

If using a .61 to .75 two-stroke engine, the Top Flite in-cowl Warbird muffler (TOPQ7915) is recommended because it may be fully concealed inside the cowl. The correct header is also required to connect the muffler to the engine. For the O.S. .61 FX or SF order TOPQ7920. For the Super Tigre® .61 to .75 G-series (muffler bolts go through the engine and screw into the muffler) order TOPQ7926. For the Super Tigre .61 to .75 K-series (muffler bolts go through the muffler and screw into the engine) order TOPQ7925. Additionally, a long silicone tube will be required to connect the Top Flite in-cowl muffler to the header. Aerotrend 3/4 in [19.1mm] inside diameter silicone tubing was used on this model (AERG2220).

Note: The Top Flite in-cowl muffler is not recommended for engines over .75 cu in. Refer to the engine manufacturer’s recommendations for selecting the correct propellers.

FLAPS: The Sea Fury may be built either with or without flaps. Flaps are not necessary for an enjoyable flying experience, but they do add greatly to scale realism. Landing with flaps is a blast (and can be safer) because the model is able to fly at reduced speeds. Full instructions are included for building the Sea Fury with flaps, but a little extra craftsmanship and skill (not to mention a little extra time) will be required.

LANDING GEAR OPTIONS: The Sea Fury may be built with either fixed or retractable landing gear. The pre bent fixed landing gear wires are included with this kit, so the only additional item required to build the Sea Fury with fixed gear is 4 inch [100mm] wheels. If installing retracts, there are two recommended options: The kit may be built to accommodate Robart #605 HD retracts with 3/6 [4.8mm] wire struts (ROBQ0005) or Century Jet Models #32425 Top Flite Sea Fury system with scale struts (CJMQ4150). Instructions and are provided for installation of either gear (see page 18 for additional, important information on selecting retracts).

If installing the Century Jet Models #3235 Top Flite System with 1/2 in [13mm] diameter struts (CJMQ4100) or any other system, the landing gear rail spacing and/or position may require modification to accommodate the gear.

Both Century Jet systems include all required components including retracts, struts, air lines, fittings, air control valve and air tank (some modelers prefer to replace CJM’s air filler valve with Robart's air filler valve). Whichever retract system is installed, an additional servo will be required to operate the air control valve.

COCKPIT AND PILOT: Your Sea Fury won't be complete unless a Top Flite Sea Fury Cockpit Kit (TOPQ8412) and Top Flite 1/7 scale WW II Full Body Pilot (TOPQ9000) are installed. The cockpit kit includes the floor, side panels, instrument panel, seat, headrest and accessories. It may be installed after the fuselage is completed, but is easier to fit during construction. The Top Flite pilot is the correct size for this model and fits perfectly in the cockpit.

TRIM SCHEME: The trim scheme on the model on the kit box was selected from a photo found on the Internet. It’s a trim scheme of a racing plane, though it has a military appearance. To duplicate the trim scheme with MonoKote, two 6 ftrolls of dove gray (TOPQ0211) and one 6 ft roll of insignia blue (TOPQ0207) are required. Additionally, a few feet of black and white MonoKote are required for the invasion stripes, and Top Flite LustreKote® white primer (TOPR7801), dove gray (TOPR7211), insignia blue (TOPR7207) and crystal clear (TOPR7200) are required for painting (see FINISHING beginning on page 56 for full details on painting and covering).

SCALE COMPETITION: The outline of the Top Flite Gold Edition Sea Fury was derived from three-view drawings, photos and highly detailed plastic model kits. Some areas of the outline have been slightly changed to improve flight characteristics. Notably, the area of the tail feathers has been slightly increased to improve directional stability and control. The scale of this model is 1:7 (or 1:7.07 to be more precise) which was derived by averaging the scale wingspan and the scale length.

If you plan to enter the Sea Fury in scale competition (it's lots of fun, and the runways are usually paved!) this kit may be entered in Fun Scale, Sportsman Scale and Expert Scale classes in AMA competition. All classes have the same flight requirements in which you must perform ten maneuvers, five of which are mandatory..."

    ScaleType: This (oz13609) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawker_Sea_Fury
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

Notes

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.

Scaling

This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
