Clostermann’s Tempest in 1/48
Eduard’s excellent but slightly tricky-to-build quarter scale Hawker Tempest Mk.V finished as Pierre Clostermann’s mount at the end of the Second World War.
The kit is a bit fiddly by Eduard standards but fit is generally good. The only real disappointment was the canopy which was cracked and badly stained when masks were removed at the end. I did my best to restore it but the crack is still visible. Other than that, pleased with the finish.
