Hawker Tempest Mk.V (61.5″)

£8.00£193.50

This classic British WWII fighter is replicated on two well detailed plan sheets showing working flaps and an all wood construction. It builds into a 1:8.2 scale, 1,562 mm (61.5”) wingspan scale model. A laser cut wood-pack is available, which contains most of the shaped parts needed, such as fuselage formers and wing ribs, but you will need additional sheet and strip wood and ply to complete the aircraft, as well as all the hardware. A moulded plastic cockpit canopy and engine cowling are also available, as well as an aluminium spinner. The model was designed to be powered by a .60 cu. in. 2-stroke glow engine but experienced modellers should be able to convert it to electric power (details not supplied). It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying.

Full Description

The Hawker Tempest was a British fighter aircraft primarily used by the RAF in WWII. The Tempest was an improved derivative of the Hawker Typhoon, the type originally being known as the Typhoon II, which was intended to address the Typhoon’s unexpected fall-off of performance at high altitude by replacing its wing with a thinner laminar flow design. Having diverged considerably from the Typhoon, it was chosen to rename the aircraft Tempest. The Tempest emerged as one of the most powerful fighters of the WWII and was the fastest propeller-driven aircraft of the war at low altitude. It carried out a range of missions, including high altitude fighter sweeps, destroying V1 ‘flying bombs’, and armed reconnaissance, seeking out air and ground targets deep behind enemy lines.

This classic British WWII fighter is replicated on two well detailed plan sheets showing working flaps and an all wood construction. It builds into a 1:8.2 scale, 1,562 mm (61.5”) wingspan scale model. A laser cut wood-pack is available, which contains most of the shaped parts needed, such as fuselage formers and wing ribs, but you will need additional sheet and strip wood and ply to complete the aircraft, as well as all the hardware. A moulded plastic cockpit canopy and engine cowling are also available, as well as an aluminium spinner. The model was designed to be powered by a .60 cu. in. 2-stroke glow engine but experienced modellers should be able to convert it to electric power (details not supplied). It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying.
