This is one of my favorite models also! I was thinking of converting the T-28 wing for mine since they are very close in outline. This fury shares the wing design of its piston powered cousin the Mustang. The actual plane used a unique nose wheel in that it would "kneel" down for stowage on board and aircraft carrier since the wings don't fold like other navy jets. I always thought it looked funky with the wheel folded. You willl usually see these with tape over the gun barrel ports in photos because pilots complained of the noise they made while flying!
Great Job Steve, you really captured the look of the plane. I had to check the photos and it's really very good.
Good luck on your model.
