  1. 1:32 WWII Bristol Centaurus engine Designed for Special Hobby Tempest Mk.II Catalogue # 129-5129 Available from Special Hobby for €52,92 The Centaurus was the final development of the Bristol Engine Company's series of sleeve valve radial aircraft engines. The Centaurus is an 18-cylinder, two-row design that eventually delivered over 3,000 hp (2,200 kW). The engine was introduced into service late in the Second World War and was one of the most powerful aircraft piston engines to see service. Like most Bristol Engines designs, the Centaurus was based on the mechanicals
  2. 1:48 Tempest Mk.V Series 1 Eduard Catalogue # 82121 Available SOON from Eduard In March of 1940, Hawker initiated a number of design studies aimed at improving the Typhoon. Among these studies were ways of improving the Typhoon's high-altitude performance. These involved the use of a new wing design that featured a thinner wing section and a reduced wing area. The new wing had an elliptical planform and showed a great potential for increasing performance at altitude while reducing the tendency of the original Typhoon wing to buffet at speeds around 500 mph. The m
  3. Hello, I started new build. It will be OOB. I added some details and wires into the cockpit.
  4. 1/32 Tempest Mk.VI Special Hobby Catalogue # SH32055 Available from Special Hobby for 1.053 Kč (approx. £36) Unlike Spitfire development, where even major airframe revisions saw the type keep its original name, Hawker’s Typhoon project was different. The Typhoon wasn’t without its problems, such as a seemingly unstoppable leaking of carbon monoxide gas into the cockpit, and of course that tail unit which had broken away completely on some aircraft, ending with a series of reinforcement straps that were designed as a simple fix for this. Like the Hurricane, the Ty
  5. 1/32 Tempest Mk.V – Engine Cover Panels (for Special Hobby kit) CMK Catalogue # 5111 Available from Special Hobby for 801 Kč (approx. £28 in EU. Other countries may vary) If you’ve not already taken a look at our review of the Tempest V Engine Set, designed for Special Hobby’s rather sweet kit, then click HERE to get an idea of what this set should accompany. Whilst it’s entirely feasible to build the engine and Tempest without the cowl parts, you will of course need the engine if you plan to buy this product. As far as I know, Special Hobby has no plans (as yet)
  6. 1/32 RP-3 60lb SAP/HE British WWII Rocket Projectile Special Hobby Catalogue # SH32075 Available from Special Hobby for 267 Kč (approx. £10) The RP-3 (from Rocket Projectile 3 inch) was a British rocket projectile used during and after the Second World War. Though primarily an air-to-ground weapon, it saw limited use in other roles. Its 60 lb (27kg) warhead gave rise to the alternative name of the "60 lb rocket"; the 25 lb (11.3kg) solid-shot armour-piercing variant was referred to as the "25 lb rocket". They were generally used by British fighter-bomber aircraft
  7. 1/32 Hawker Tempest Mk.V – Engine Set (for Special Hobby kit) CMK Catalogue # 5110 Available from Special Hobby for 1.964 Kč (approx. £68 in EU. Other countries may vary) The Napier Sabre was a British H-24-cylinder, liquid-cooled, sleeve valve, piston aero engine, designed by Major Frank Halford and built by D. Napier & Son during World War II. The engine evolved to become one of the most powerful inline piston aircraft engines in the world, developing from 2,200hp in its earlier versions to 3,500hp in late-model prototypes.
  8. 1/32 Tempest Mk.V “HI-TECH 2” Special Hobby Catalogue # SH32070 Available from Special Hobby for approx. 79,00€ Unlike Spitfire development, where even major airframe revisions saw the type keep its original name, Hawker’s Typhoon project was different. The Typhoon wasn’t without its problems, such as a seemingly unstoppable leaking of carbon monoxide gas into the cockpit, and of course that tail unit which had broken away completely on some aircraft, ending with a series of reinforcement straps that were designed as a simple fix for this.

  10. 1:32 Tempest Mk.V Special Hobby Catalogue # 100-32049 Available from Special Hobby for € 52,10 Finally it’s here. The kit Special Hobby has had us waiting for! To be more specific: Special Hobby shared their first rough impression and intention in May 2013. I myself have been eye-balling the first sprues at several hobby shows over the last few years at the Special Hobby stall and could tell this was going to be good. It is true that Pacific Coast Models (PCM) was first on the scene with a limited run kit. Come to think of it Cees Broere and myself also reviewed this kit back
  11. Evenin' all, I recently started the new 1/32 Special Hobby Tempest MK.V for publication in Military Illustrated Modeller, but thought I'd post an annotated build of it here too. This one will be finished as JN751 (R- , the mount of Wing Commander Roland Beamont. The kit itself has five different schemes, but this one is the only one that has any invasion stripes, so I really couldn't not do it The model will be entirely out of box except for a little lead wire in the wheel bays. The kit is supplied with resin and PE parts as a Hi-Tech edition, and some nice HGW seatbelts too. Check out m
  12. Hi all, Here is the completed Tempest which as a sample was reviewed by Jeroen Peters and me Here on LSM ( and LSP) Last year. Although a great kit, it gave me fits sometimes because of il- fitting Parts such as the cockpit and the canopy. Nothing that couldn't be solved though. The result is a very good representation of Hawkers finest. Apart from the wheels, which were replaced By Barracuda items, the kit was built from the box. You can find the work in progress here: http://forum.largescalemodeller.com/topic/1271-pcm-hawker-tempest-v/ Hope you like it. I know I do. Cheers C
  13. 1:32 Hawker Tempest MK.V Short Run Injected Plastic, Photo-etch and Resin Manufacturer: Pacific Coast Models Catalogue # PCM32016 Available directly from Pacific Coast Models (www.pacmodels.com) Finally, a Hawker Tempest in our scale! The wait has been long but now we have a 1/32 kit of the Hawker Tempest V. Since it hit the shops early july it has been subjected to a lot of webdiscussion. Talk about loose and damaged parts, wings and fuselage halves being warped, non-fitting radiator inserts and spinners etc. It seemed like this kit was rushed to get it in the shops
