Ag1 for flaps, Ag2 to fold wings, Ag3 for arrestor hook (not advisable to use it other than for aeithetics), Ag4 for drop tanks. Thanks to Tang0five for his suggestion and patience.

Now for the wiki bit: The Hawker Sea Fury is a British fighter aircraft designed and manufactured by Hawker. It was the last propeller-driven fighter to serve with the Royal Navy, and one of the fastest production single-seat reciprocating engine aircraft ever built.[2] Developed during the Second World War, the Sea Fury entered service two years after the war ended. The Sea Fury proved to be a popular aircraft with a number of overseas militaries, and was used during the Korean War in the early 1950s, as well as against the 1961 Bay of Pigs Invasion of Cuba. The Sea Fury's development was formally initiated in 1943 in response to a wartime requirement of the RAF, thus the aircraft was initially named Fury. As the Second World War drew to a close, the RAF cancelled their order for the aircraft; however, the Royal Navy saw the type as a suitable carrier aircraft to replace a range of increasingly obsolete or poorly suited aircraft being operated by the Fleet Air Arm. Development of the Sea Fury proceeded, and the type began entering operational service in 1947. The Sea Fury has many design similarities to Hawker's preceding Tempest fighter, having originated from a requirement for a "Light Tempest Fighter"; both the Sea Fury's wings and fuselage originate from the Tempest but were significantly modified. Production Sea Furies were fitted with the powerful Bristol Centaurus engine, and armed with four wing-mounted Hispano V cannons. While originally developed as a pure aerial fighter aircraft, the definitive Sea Fury FB 11 was a fighter-bomber, the design having been found suitable for this mission as well. The Sea Fury attracted international orders as both a carrier and land-based aircraft; it was operated by countries including Australia, Burma, Canada, Cuba, Egypt, West Germany

    @ChiChiWerx yeah, quality build, really, really good, your best so far. Lands easily, as well (I.e., not impossible).

    @ChiChiWerx about the same, its meant to have a max speed of 460ish at 18k but if i give it enough power to do that it takes off in 10ft =) My next build im going to work on that drag = false/0 on all the parts then add it at the end so i can control the power better (if i remember, old dog new tricks etc).

    Great build, flies very realistically. How fast have you gotten this? I can get to 400 mph at around 10,000' or so.

    @CRJ900Pilot @Tang0five @GhostHTX thanks for the comments and votes, note im not massively happy with the wing so might re-build with better trailing edges and dihedral when i get a chance =)
