Quote from: Gondor on January 11, 2023, 01:12:41 PMThis is a double build useing two different kits for a conversion set to produce a variant of the Hawker Tempest that was planned but never came about due to the power plant, The Rolls-Royce R.46 which eventually became the Eagle, fifteen of which powered the Westland Wyvern.The P.1027 as the planned aircraft was known, was dropped in favour of the P.1030 with both projects cancelled later in favour of projects powered by jet engines.So here is a picture of the kits and the conversionsSorry for the glare but they do have to make the box's shiney.Gondor

You may wish to cut off the mould plug on the engine block that attaches to the fuselage, and simply glue it as a butt joint: I found that the best way to make sure it fitted well.

Assume you're meaning Humbrol 78?
