Hawker Tempest


Recommended Posts

Finish no6 of the year and probably the last one is Airfix's Hawker Tempest in 1/72, its a nice little kit that has some advantages over the earlier Typhoon but has the same fit issue around the nose area. Been slowly putting together along side the Blenhiem IV that was finished a few months ago and finally completed yesterday. Built straight out of box as an aircraft of N0486 sqn, Royal New Zealand Air Force, Castle Camp, Cambridge, Apr 1944. Painted with the usual Tamiya and Mr Hobby Colour acrylics with some oil paint washes and Florys Dark Dirt clay wash. I ended up painting the leading edge stripes as I couldn't get the decals to sit right and lost some of the smaller underside stencil data.
