  1. Hello Folks Ever since reading the Pierre Clostermann’s Big Show as a teenager I’ve had a thing about the Hawker Tempest Mk V. I think it is something about it’s elegant menace - think Lauren Bacall in a ball gown accessorized with bovver boots and a knuckleduster - that does it for me. This is the venerable Heller kit nearly ten years in the making as I gradually pick up model making again. I’ve used some Scale Resin aftermarket to replace the kit wheels (one of which was lost to the carpet monster) as well as the kit’s rudimentary exhaust stubs. I’ve also scratch built the gunsight

  4. Tempest Napier Sabre Engine (4393 for Eduard) 1:48 CMK by Special Hobby Eduard’s new Tempest is hardly light on detail, but the cowling is moulded closed with no engine within. The Sabre is a huge lump with a H-shaped block and sleeve-valves in order to produce up to 2,000hp, it was shoe-horned into the Tempest’s fuselage with little room to spare. This set from CMK is a resin upgrade to the kit with 54 detailed parts on 15 casting blocks in grey resin, and arrives in a yellow-themed blister pack with header card and instructions within.
  5. Hawker Tempest Mk.V Series 2 (82121) 1:48 Eduard ProfiPACK The Tempest was a development of the Typhoon, originally called the Typhoon II, it was envisioned to solve any and all of the issues that bothered its designer Sidney Camm. The main difference was a much thinner wing which reduced drag and improved aerodynamics of the laminar airflow. The wings could accommodate 20mm Hispano cannons that packed an enormous punch, and lent itself to the low-level attack role that it was designed for. The engines intended to power the aircraft were the Centaurus, Griffon a

  8. Greetings all, It's been a long time I posted in RFI, but here for your delectation is Special Hobby's tremendous Tempest V, the original HiTech boxing augmented with their resin Napier Sabre, which truly deserves the accolade 'a model in itself'. I think it might actually have more pieces than the airframe. WIP is here; and without further ado, the pictures. Next year's project is also 1/32, features several Merlin engines and is over a metre wide. Hurry up, postie!
  9. Like the title says - it's in stock now and available to buy from our website! https://mjwmodels.co.uk/edk82121-148-hawker-tempest-mkv-profipack-6603-p.asp thanks Mike
  10. Hello All, If I remember correctly there was a post, or a publication showing the Rushton target towing gear on Tempests post war. Can anyone help in this regard? My searches failed to bring up this info, if it exists. the RAF museum Tempest pix on line don't show much detail. TW
  11. Hi all, This just turned up in the post today so I'll be starting this soon. I just haveto wait for a new airbrush nozzle to turn up Thanks for checking in, -Cam
  12. Hi All! I finished the Revell Hawker Tempest in 1/72 - had a bit of a 'mare with the decals, but I feel I did ok. I made a video about it if you'd like to check it out and let me know what you think of the finished kit! Thanks guys
  13. I'll start with something easy-peasy; the Hawker Tempest II I'll do it in an RAF scheme [now; them] Photos; The kit makes a Mk.VI of the RAF or a Mk.II of the Indian Air force I'll be doing an RAF Mk.II Loverly; mustard and green plastic The decals are rough
  14. The princely sum of £5.99 secured this immaculate and unmolested example of PK-23 which I will be doing as an Indian Air Force example and as proof of my Indian heritage , it will be seen in the gallery with my homemade Chicken Balti. Build will be enhanced by a failed Airfix Typhoon which will be cannibalized for parts, accurate or not. Should at least keep my F-5B company as it approaches primer and masking. I'm hoping that with some judicious dry fitting and fettling I should avoid the large amounts of priming and sanding that's been the F-5B to date.
  15. Hawker Tempest Mk.V 1:72 MisterCraft The Tempest was designed by Hawkers to address some of the performance issues with the Typhoon. The wingspan was originally greater than the Typhoon but this was clipped back to be slightly shorter. The wing was changed with the cannon being moved further back. Ammunition capacity was expanded to 200 rounds per gun. The landing gear was given a wider track to improve landing characteristics. The new wing and four bladed propeller was to cure the high frequency vibrations problems suffered by the Typhoon. With a top speed of 432mph it was faster at low
  16. Gun Barrels & Pitot Probes 1:32 Master This month’s releases from Master Models include these two sets for 1:32 scale aircraft. [AM-32-095] – Designed to be used with the Special Hobby Tempest Mk.V they are a simple replacement for the kits barrels, these being with a full jacket. Since they are a direct replacement, the wings will not require drilling out. Instead a backing plate will need to be made, if there isn’t one in the kit, and the barrels glued to that, ensuring the inner and outer barrels are correctly orientated, as the outer barrel is longer
  17. I finished this model last night. It represents the plane on which Pierre Clostermann was flying. You know everything about the models, there are no problems for work, except for the decals that are terribly fat. I am pleased that it all turned out in the end. Here's the picture.
  18. Hawker Tempest Wheels CMK/Special Hobby 1:32 CMK continue to increase their range of resin enhancement sets for various kits. This set if to provide the option of having square tread pattern tyres instead of the smooth style provided in the kits. The simple card headed poly pack contains two very well moulded; in fact I’d say brilliantly moulded wheels and tyres. The detail is quite amazing, right down to the name of the manufacturer on the tyre walls. The webs holding the wheel to the moulding block are nice and thing, so shouldn’t take too much work removing them and cl
  19. Hawker Tempest II Hi-Tech 1:32 Special Hobby As one variant of the Typhoon replacement that were both penned by Sidney Camm, the Tempest was split into a number of threads to prevent the project stalling in the event that any of the possible engines ran into difficulties or were cancelled. The Tempest II was designed from the ground-up to sport a radial engine, and ended up using the Centaurus that had originally been destined for the failed Tornado project, which initially caused some teething troubles until the engine mounts were replaced and some other tweaks
  20. 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
  21. Hawker Tempest Mk.V 1:32 Special Hobby Standard Boxing The Tempest was an attempt by Sidney Camm's team at Hawker to "fix" the Typhoon's shortfalls, which although they were few were important enough for them to throw a lot of time and money at them. As far as attempts go, it was pretty successful, but it left us modellers with a fairly confusing array of designs that look substantially different from each other, let alone the Tiffie. The over-thick wing of the Tiffie had resulted in too much drag, so this was ditched and replaced by the new Laminar Flow aerofoil as demo
  22. Hawker Tempest II 26 Sqn, Zeltweg, Austria, 1947 I was recently sorting some old kits and found a half-finished Matchbox Tempest in a Heller Tempest box, so I decided to get on with it. This has most of the Matchbox trenches filled with Milliput (though I must admit I got a bit lazy when it came to the engine cowling area) and panel lines/fasteners drawn in with pencil, which was then sealed with Klear. Markings are from Xtradecal. I found illustrations of this aircraft with a red spinner and also a blue / white spinner, but I went with the Xtradecal illustration. Satisfying to have re
  23. IIRC the identification stripes (four 12" black and three 24" white ones) on Typhoon wing undersurfaces were introduced in December 1942 and ordered to be removed in February 1944. What's funny they were also introduced on production Tempests (after all Hawker called the Tempest briefly Typhoon II) and the first units flying Tempest from April 1944 (No 3 and 486 Sq.) didn't feel obliged to remove the ID stripes, as the order listed only Typhoon Thus some (not many) Tempests from these two squadrons mentioned above featured in June 1944 "mixed striping", having D-day stripes (three white and
  24. 1/72 - Tempest Mk.V/Mk.II - by Eduard 3D construction in progress confirmed here, post 26531: http://ipmsnymburk.com/forum/viewtema.php?ID_tema=11559 1/48 Tempest was confirmed some time ago but a scaled-down 1/72 kit is new for me
  25. Hi, this will be my second entry and I reall yhope I can finish it in time (would be the first time I finish two kits in one GB but hey - this should be workable): My Eduard boxing of the 1:48 Tempest was a special offer by A2Zee and included Alley Cat resin pieces like wheels and a corrected tail: I will build it as Roland P. Beamonts Tempest. Rene Edit: Forgot to list - the kit canopy will be replaced with the Rob Taurus vacuformed canopy.
