Hawker Tempest Mk.V (61.5″)

Designed by Brian Taylor 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.

Designed by Brian Taylor 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.

What’s in a Laser or CNC Cut Wood Pack?

A CNC or Laser Cut Wood Pack contains most, if not all, of the intricately shaped parts shown on the plan, which would be difficult or time-consuming to cut out by hand. It does not contain any sheet or strip wood, which you will need to buy separately. Alternatively, you can purchase an Additional Wood Pack, if available. Our Laser or CNC Cut Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply & lite ply and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model, such as hardwoods, metals & GRP sheets.

What’s in an Additional Wood Pack?

Our Additional Wood Packs contain MOST of the necessary sheet and strip wood needed to complete a model being built from a Sarik Hobbies plan and using the associated Laser Cut Wood Pack, if available. We stock a wide range of balsa, ply and spruce in popular sheet and strip sizes but even so we cannot guarantee to be able to supply all the wood necessary to complete each model. So some additional purchases may be required from other modeling wood stockists if not available from Sarik Hobbies. Our Additional Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and spruce wood in the stock sizes as used by our suppliers and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model such as hardwoods, metals & GRP sheets.

What’s in a Short Kit?

A short kit usually contains, where available, the plan, the laser/CNC cut wood pack, additional wood pack, canopy, cowl or any other available Glass Fibre or plastic moulded items.
