Occasionally I feel this temptation to deviate from the main subject of this site (the Spitfire) to show other subjects, and this time for a very good reason!
This 1/20 model of the Hawker Tempest Mk. V made its public debut at IPMS UK Scale Modelworld 2009.
Created by acclaimed modeller Alan Clark, the model is entirely scratchbuilt, complete down to the engine, interior detail and the various fittings. The model took about 4 years to complete.
The rear fuselage and radiator was formed from plastic sections. The framework of the front area was soldered from brass tubing.
