Matt, I'm not suggesting I know any better
, but a lot of folk seem to finish Sea Fury wells in a silver. Most of the kits built are Brit or Commonwealth builds, I thought the painting for the Iraqi aircraft would mainly be in Brit colours and so the wheel wells are silver on mine.
You've given me an idea. If you were to get the standard PM Sea Fury, you could use the decals from the trainer to make an Iraqi front Line fighter? Looking on Wings Palette you'd be able to use the serial number for the trainer to make up the number for a fighter. Here is are the Arabic numerals 0 to 9 ٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩, if you used ٢٣٦ this would make '236' and the serials for the Iraqi Sea Furys were numbered 231 to 237! Sorted! Just a thought.
By the way, all this info was gleaned from Wings Pallete, not from any real research on my part.
