This is the Special Hobby 1/32nd scale Tempest.
I built it for a review in Scale Aviation Modeller International.
It was a challenging build!

You did a remarkable job.  Dropped flaps look great.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

Nice build! I have the same and is waiting in line right after my two F-15, three F-4, two Spits ....

 

You said challenging, is there a lot of fitting problems?

Oh :wow: What a fantastic build. Your camo D Day paint scheme combined with your weathering really has produced an exceptional model.   What were the challenges that you ran into during the build? I'm more then curious as I'm planning on buying the  high tech Tempest version.
