  1. Paul, I've always loved the look of these Tempests. The short, broad cowling with the forward set broad chord wing and rear set canopy has always looked strikingly "sporty" if you know what I mean. That said, I love your handling of Eduards fine kit, and most of all, I love the chosen scheme and it's seemless execution. Also, thanks for sharing the cockpit shots, you've really done a crackin' job on this build!

  2. This is a fantastic job of this beautiful plane, Paul.
    Got to build my Hasegawa 1/48 sometime.
    All the best!

  3. Very nice build, Paul.
    Must have been a relief for those soldiers when they got ground support from Tempests.

  4. Nicely done Paul, that cockpit looks fantastic.
