Default E-flite hawker Sea fury?

Hello everyone,
Alot of you know im building the AT-6 Texan, but i dont think im ready yet. Behind me is only experience with a super cub and a phase 3 p-38 lightining. I was wondering, i only have 110$ left of Christmas money. Should i go ahead and buy the Sea fury so ill be ready for the texan? Or should i invest the money into finishing up the texan?
At this point, i cant decide, your advice would be helpfull

If you're flying the P38 well, then I'd imagine the AT-6 would even be easier.
I have the Sea Fury and it's a nice flyer, but built fully loaded with retracts, it's not light. I wouldn't be certain again that it would be any easier than the AT-6.

I would not use a foam plane to get yourself ready for the E-Flite T6. A foam plane flys completely different than a wood built up model and the T6 flys more like a large gas plane than what you fly now. Most people fly foam plane with hard turns and pull them hard off the ground on takeoff, but thats the nice part about foamies, they can handle it and most seem to like it. If you try any of the typical foamie takeoff or turns with the T6 you will be taking home a pile of wood.

It sounds like your cash is limited so what I would do is fly the p-38 but fly it like it is twice the size it is now. Make longer takeoffs and pratice smooth wide turns and when you fly the T6 for the first time go with someone who can help you with the first couple of flights. You will keep your T6 around for a long time if you do.
