PCM Hawker Tempest V

Recommended Posts

Here's my current project. The tempest. A kit we have all been waiting for.

So far I am building as many subassemblies as possible prior to airbrushing.

The wings are finished and working on the radiator partsvthat need some

Fitting. So far I am extremely enjoying this kit.

A note

I deviated from the kit by sawing the wheelwell centreblock away as mine had a slight droop.

The Tempest had a horizontal centresection so I fitted a spar from thick plastic. My solution

Not necessarily needed for all kits.

Some progress then,

Did some work on the radiator pieces by fitting a tube to represent the duct and

Also helps to keep the correct distance. The parts has to be sanded for fit with

The photo etch trimmed with scissors. The photo etch was glued by spreading

A layer if CA with som stiff card,....quickly. Also testfit of the wings.

I would highly recommended you test fit the cockpit before gluing and painting. Mine fit so poorly that I had to cut it apart and remove about 3-4mm to get it to fit. That is after all of the wheel well reconstruction.

Hi Kev,

Well yes, although I had just cleaned up before taking the pic. I work on the

Dining table. After the daily modelling session everything gets put away in a closet. Otherwise

I'm in trouble...........

Hi Cees.

 

Not sure if you are aware of the Barracuda Studios Tempest mainwheels, but they are a big improvement over the kit wheels which are too small in diameter and too wide.

Available here, or shortly from Hannants.

I have a few more 1/32 Tempest accessories coming soon, but they are too late for your build, which is looking very nice!

 

Looking forward to seeing it progress.
