  1. Afternoon. My second entry for this GB will be the later Pierre Clostermann Eduard 1/48 Tempest - with suitably prominent Lorraine Cross on it for the Forum prefect... Interestingly, I seem to have been a bit over zealous in the past, and have purchased an additional canopy mask set for this model. If anyone needs it please DM me and let me know. Thanks for looking, Icarus
  2. Hi, I have the Eduard 1/48 Tempest Mk. V and HGW's wet transfer decal and stencil set. It has 140(pairs) of these little red lines (to go each side of a fastener, presumably). I can figure out where they go, but apart from my hesitance for loads of stencils anyway, I'm reluctant to plaster them all over my model. I can't seem to find a photo of them on a real aircraft. Can anyone point me to a reference, so that I can at least decide how it would look?
  3. This is a build from a couple of years ago which has been resurrected and cleaned up. When I built this I was quite pleased with it until I was taking the pictures. I was trying to take a picture to compare to the one shot of the real aircraft I could find. I just couldn't get the angle quite right and it dawned on me that I have a model with one wing slightly low! I did take the model around the show circuit and only a very few noticed but it nagged at me and she was swiftly retired to the Loft. However, a friend loved it and started his Mk.II. Forewarned by my problem has done a splendid job including a metal spar to keep things in line (He's and engineer or something!). Anyway, he has asked me to resurrect my errant build to display at Telford alongside his Mk.II so here she is. Actually, it is an absolutely beautiful kit - Special Hobby have come a long way. Other than the wing, the only problems I had was resurrection of lost panel and rivet lines on the nose after cleaning up the joint. Everything is out of the box except for the radio aerial which is nickel wire. So, with a warning to prospective builders........ And this is the picture I was trying to emulate.... Cheers Malcolm
  4. Hello everyone... straight from the D-Day group build i present this. It is a Hawker Mk.V series I Tempest of 3 Squadron June 8th 1944. I modified by adding the extensions to the barrel's as the kit represents a Mk.V Series II Tempest. There is some debate about the 3 Squadron crest on the vertical tail. I know its supposed to be a post war only thing. I have a photo from my research that appears to have the crest painted out. However i believe some aircraft had them. They were either painted over at the time or airbrushed out by censors during the war. I've had a couple of discussions about it and I'm going to leave the crest on as i believe they were there. Please feel free to Question, comment, tell some good stories, or pass on your thoughts. Dennis
  5. A Quote: "The noontide sun, call’d forth the mutinous winds, And ‘twixt the green sea and the azured vault Set roaring war: to the dread rattling thunder!" William Shakespeare wrote the "Tempest". I have borrowed quotes from the Tempest which to me at least, fit the idea of a Tempest Roaring in to press home the attack over the Normandy zone. I borrowed the quote idea from @Procopius, who also donated the kit to me. I will be building a Tempest Mk.V from 3 Squadron. Initially the Tempest's were held in reserve. There primary responsibility was still defense of Great Britain from V-1 attacks. But they were allowed to roam and support troops as of June 8th. I will be using the Academy Tempest Mk.V. I will be able to use the Majority of the decals from the kit. Though i will have to change the E to another letter. The Roundels are also incorrect for a D-Day aircraft. I believe the upper wings should still be the Blue/Red roundels. Here are the sprue shots. I have both a canopy mask and a camouflage mask. This will be a 1st for me to use camouflage masks. Though Ive used and made canopy masks before. Questions, comments, tips, or good stories are always welcome. Dennis
  6. EDIT: This build was started in the Made in Britain GB, back in 2016. As usual with me, I didn't manage to finish it in time and it's been on hold till now. I'll try to finish it now. Thanks for looking Jaime ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi, This is my second entry to this GB and constitutes the second of a two-part series.This one is Academy's 1/72 Tempest Mk V, which I'll build as flown by F/Lt Pierre Clostermann, of 3 Sqn RAF (Free French Air Force), in July 1945 . His aircraft was marked JF-E NV724. The first part of the series is a D-Day Typhoon Mk Ib. Here is an interview with Pierre Clostermann. I'll build the kit using Eduard's zoom set and Quickboost's resin exhausts: IMAG0648 IMAG1654 In April I primed and painted the resin exhausts for the Typhoon and the Tempest. This was done at the same time as I painted the exhausts for my Bf 109 G10, like shown in the next picture: IMAG1808 No additional work has been done. The plastic parts are all still in the sprues. I'll try to build the tubular cockpit structure using styrene rods. I'll use the Typhoon's zoom set cockpit structure as a guide for the rod lengths. Let's see if I can make it. I'll also try to scratch build the flaps to pose them dropped. Thanks for looking. Jaime
