  1. Hello everyone … I am present my 3rd RFI of the year. It is the 1/72 Matchbox Hawker Tempest Mk.II. It was built in the Matchbox group build and was built a in the markings of 152 Squadron “Black Panther’s”. A few with its older cousin, my Car door Tiffy build. Please feel free to ask questions, leave comments, or visit the build thread. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235104195-hawker-tempest-mkii/ Dennis
  2. Casting around for something to do during the mid-winter (in Oz) break, I came across this which I picked up at the recent local model show: As well as the kit, which includes some resin parts for the cockpit, there was was also this Airwaves conversion kit: Whoever had originally owned this kit had already prepared the plastic parts, so that hard task was already done: So ideal for my second conversion, and a relatively swift build (although not finish - more about that later). The fuselage and wings went together well. I glued in the nose with plenty of superglue gel. I also painted the cockpit parts, although I am a bit uncertain as to the colour. I assumed, being post war, it would all be black, but after checking the internet it looks like that may not be so. It appears the sidewallls. May have been black and the other parts would be interior grey-green. Anyone have some advice for me? The wings needed a bit a bit of a spacer between the wheel wells and the top surface to ensure everything lines properly. Now as to markings, this may be a quick build but the finish will be delayed as I soon discovered that there are limited options in 1:48 for a Tempest Mk II. I found a copy of Model Alliance 1/48 Hawker Tempest Mk.II/F.2/F.6 Post War # 489021 on-line, but that will take a few weeks to get downunder. Plenty of time to choose a scheme I guess.
