Hawker Tempest Mk.v


Recommended Posts

Hi all I've put the tiger tank back in the box and I have 2 1/32 kits on the go the first of which is Special Hobby's wonderful tempest kit supplied to me with thanks from Special Hobby and James Hatch thanks guys! 

So here we go not much to show at the moment but I have started in the very well appointed cockpit will  be adding to it over the next couple of weeks 

So here we go 


next will be a clear coat and then a little light weathering

Great start on the Mk V, pit looks great. I used HGW for the first on my SH Mk V they so make the pit.......just a heads up, you may have to “ shave” the lower cockpit tubing to fit between the u/c wells and the fuselage. Mine was a bit of a PITA. Suggest dry fitting.....

That's what I call a gap ;), not far from the intended one behind the cockpit. One of these moments where you hit the buy button on a riveting tool and call it a first.
But generally everything seems to align fine and it should be a nice outcome with the Tempest.

Cheers Rob
