Tempest Update Sets - For Special Hobby & Pacific Coast Kits 1:32 Special Hobby Special Hobby have recently released both a super detailed, and basic Tempest kit in 1.32. For those who have either of these kits, or the Pacific Coast kit they have now released a series of upgrade sets under their CMK label. Pilot's Seats These seats are direct replacements for the kit seats and available with or without belts. Pilot's Seat With Harness Pilot's Seat Landing Gear These sets are a direct replacement for the kit parts. The legs are made from strengthen resin. The main gear set contains the gear legs and the tail wheel set contains the leg and a new resin tail wheel. Tail Wheel with Strengthened Leg Main Undercarriage Legs Cannon Barrels Here the modeller has a choice for late barrels. There is a set of small barrel to put into the wing, or a set moulded into the wing leading edge. For the early aircraft a full set of barrels is included. Cannon Barrels With Wing Leading Edge Early & Late Cannon Barrels Control Column This is a new multi part control column with added photo-etched parts. Control Column Gunsights Here the modeller has a choice of a Type I Mk.III gunsight or a Gyro Gunsight. MKII. The Gyro sight comes with photo-etch parts and clear film. Gunsight Type I Mk.III Gyro Gunsight Mk.II Wheels Here the modeller has a choice of a Early and late wheels as needed. They are moulded with a slight bulge on the ground contact surface. Early Wheels Late Wheels Conclusion Special Hobby have certainly produced a lot of sets for the tempest. The resin quality is excellent, not something which can be said of the packaging. The flat packs are alright for most items, however the seats need to be in box type packaging as they had already escaped by the time they reached me. Overall highly recommended.
