I must first say that the kit is looking very good.  Secondly I must admit that your "update" is extremely disappointing.  This article is rambling on about develoment and in service use of the Sea Fury.  Better and more complete background of the Sea Fury is easily available in a number of formats. What I and I expect a number of your readers would like to know is what is going on with the kit. What equipment will be included? Will closed landing gear option be available? What new design or production techniques were employed? How many parts are in the kit? Will the canopy be able to be displayed open?   That would be an update on the new kit rather than rehashing old information with spelling errors and repetitive paragraphs. Lastly while the built up model shown is absolutely beautifully done it is extremely strange that it has been finished in a scheme not included in the kit release.  I will state again, however, that the kit looks very good so far and I will be building at least a couple of these models. But please in the future write your "kit updates" about the kit.
