That's the Eagle Tempest - do a search on here as several UK based forum members have done several.



Alistair, I might have a mould for the exhausts somewhere.  I'll have a look.

What's the Gotha/Meteor in the background?  :o Very interesting! Any more photos?  :wub:

Thanks for the link, Kitbasher.  :thumbsup:
Very interesting build. It was long before my arrival here and I had missed it. How many ideas for my stack of PM Hortens!  ;D

They do look particularly smart in that colour scheme.  Having done a silver one myself I'd like to get the parts needed to do a variation with leading edge radiators - Wooksta's done at least one in the past and yes, very very sleek.

I decided that mine was to be a "jet" interceptor, flying at altitude and then diving down for the attack --  so camouflaged it Ocean Grey and PRU Blue.
Nicked the decals from one of my DH Hornet kits. Phil Butler suggested the serial number for me and of course it's "R" for Robert   ;D.

TJ910 was a 'blanked' serial coming right after a batch of Yorks and before 200 Lancaster BVIs, all of which were cancelled! BAGS of scope for future Whiffs there.  ;D

QV = 19 Sqdn. does it? Or had the codes changed by that late in the war?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Phil had said that numbers in the 'blanked' serials were probably about where the Tempest Mk.VII probably would have had serials assigned had it gone into production.

19 Sqdn. operated DH Hornets from March 1946 to January 1951 and the decals came right off a Special Hobby 1/72 kit of the Hornet which had the camo scheme as one of the options. I also gave the P.1027 a taller fin/rudder as every contra-prop aircraft I've read about eventually got a bigger area vertical tail

A basic cockpit interior has been put together, painted and inserted into the fuselage.  Since the pics were taken the fusalage has been assembled and the wings attached.




Just bits of plastic card and rod chopped up and glued together.  Seat straps are from masking tape.  Not much to be seen now, frankly.

Progress has been positively glacial but I've not given up on this one yet.  There's other in-build pictures but no point in posting those up now I've got this far.  Devoting between 30 and 60 minutes a day to this now.  Do wan't to get it done (and thanks Chris for the extension).

Looking cool, although I would have went with the low demarcation.

You really need an eight blade Wyvern contraprop.  It really adds to the mean-ness factor.  And Tempest drop tanks, plus the rocket rails from the Firedog Beaufighter.

Smooth work, kitbasher! That looks good. The lines of that machine really are lovely.
