Special Hobby 1/32 Hawker Tempest Mk.V (SH32049)

Recommended Posts

Hello, this is to be our another 1/32 scale new model. As you probably already know, there will be not only the Mk.V version, but also the Mk.II radial engined one and Mk.VI as well.

 

Quite a big plane, and a nice one, isn´t it?

Box-art shows machine of NZ pilot, S/L Warren "Smokey" Schrader, DFC and Bar, an ace with 9 1/2 kills, most of them gained in the cockpit of this very machine.

Petr,

Thank you for these images.

For our members not entirely familiar with your range, could you confirm whether the Tempest is standard injection mould, short-run injection mould or resin, and whether items like cockpit or wheels, exhausts etc will be in resin?

Many thanks once again.

Nick

Hello Nick,

 

Short run injected will be only the main parts, i.e. fuselage halves, wing parts and tailplanes. All the rest is to be injected into metal moulds, the canopy will be also made from met. moulds and the kit will contain also vacuformed clear canopy. You´ll get two types of wheels from plastic, and another pair will be mad of resin and sold as a separate set.

Looking fantastic so far - can't wait to see what the Mk.II nose looks like! I'm assuming since the V has it's own separate nose pieces it'll be a relatively simple either or, vs. hacking up the kit to make the radial?
