  4. Hello Artur...My compliments on a beautiful, well detailed Hawker Tempest. Great photography too and I'd love to see a shot of the entire aircraft to go along with the 21 detail shots you posted. Quite an outstanding build.

  5. Beautiful work.

  6. Fantastic job, and God bless your great uncle.

  7. Great work sir. and yes a fitting tribute.

  8. WOW. Outstanding model, and I know it's a tough one. Great rivet job.

  9. That's a good looking Tempest, same squadron as Closterman.

  10. Fantastic job. Rip.

  11. Very atmospheric photographs of a very nice model. I appreciate it's difficult to take pictures of what must be a pretty large model, but it would be nice to see the complete aircraft in one go! Your posting is made even more interesting as a terrific tribute to your great uncle.

  12. Really nice wash, bringing out the rivets, and exhaust stains.

  13. Lovely Work Artur!
    It looks a beauty - how was the kit - did you have any problems with it?

  14. Thank you all for the kind words, I added photos of the entire model

  15. Nice work, a nice memory.

  16. Beautifully done!

  17. 🙂 ... Greetings ... 🙂 :
    Nice tribute Artur, very nicely done.

  18. A very personal model done to perfection. Artur, I like how you weathered the landing gear wheels and the rivet detail seems to stand out with out being too over powering. The exhaust stains is well done. Over all a "Goldie Locks" build in my book.
    Two thumbs up.

  19. Thanks for the history and a nice tribute. Lovely looking model

  20. Lovely build Artur. Your photos are great as well, particularly the backgrounds.
