1/32 Special Hobby Hawker Tempest Mk. V - Fairbanks JJ+F


Recommended Posts

The following photos are of my recently completed build of the 1/32 Special Hobby Hawker Tempest Mk. V "Hi-Tech2" kit. This edition includes a bunch of resin and photoetch enhancements, most notably a very detailed resin depiction of the Napier Sabre engine. I also added the Eduard photoetch brass flaps and used HGW dry transfer for the data stencils.  All of the other markings were painted using custom cut masks.  The aircraft depicted is JJ+F flown by David C. Fairbanks, an American credited with 15 kills, 14 of which were flying the Tempest.

Oustanding work, John! As always!

I am a big fan of your modelling skills, you are on the top of my best modellers list. I am waiting for FW190A or Spitfire from you.
