1/32 Special Hobby Hawker Tempest Mk.V
This is 1/32 Special Hobby Hawker Tempest Mk.V with the markings of SN222 JF-E “Le Grand Charles”, from No.3 squadron, Fassberg, late April / early May 1945.
I have used Special Hobby Hawker Tempest Mk.V “Hi-Tech” kit.
Cockpit modified with Yahu instrument panel and CMK resin seat. Some wiring also added in the cocpit side walls.
I have used Barracudacast Tempest V Nose Correction set due to shape problem of the kit.The problem with the kit nose is that the spinner baseplate diameter is too big. This throws out the taper of the forward cowling. The radiator opening is also too big. This causes problems with the shape of the radiator housing.
Painting done with Gunze and Tamiya acrylics. Kit decals are excellent .
Exhausts replaced with CMK exhaust set.
