Another one of my more recent completed builds.

The starting point being a Smer Tempest V, this is another Tempest FVII with the RR Eagle engine.  I'd wanted to do a far east example but decided to think it through more.  The Tempest VI had featured root intakes for more cooling in tropical climates, so I decided to do something similar.  A mould provided by TsrJoe gave me the answer as it had the Tempest VI root intakes, soI cast a pair of the smaller one an did the requisite wing mods. Again, this features a Wyvern prop.

I think this is my favourite of your recent batch of posts - this one just looks mean. :wacko: Is the engine a resin part?
Some of my models can be found on my Flickr album >>>HERE<<<

Another very nice Tempest, Lee.  Looking forward to joining the P1027 club myself next year - and I think as you've conquered Tempestwhifland I may have a go at an Eagle Fury just to be a little different.

Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

Yes.

I'm thinking about another one with the root intakes, but in that micey desert scheme used post war.  Probably with bombs and a tiny star of David kill marking under the cockpit...

That's a thing - does anyone do them?
