    It's supposed to be a Fury and it is not very old. There was a foundry churning out these crude copies a few years ago.I seem to recall thinking that the original masters were nothing more than badly assembled commercial plastic kits They are not even lost wax castings.

    Oh yes , I know it's not " old"...up in the loft I have a Spitfire-ish(if you see what I mean) one bought at a car boot sale back in the 90s.....still worth the £1 I paid I guess.

    I'd have paid £1 just for the prop. I've a few ornament/mascots that lack a good one
