Eduard 1/48 Hawker Tempest Mk.V Series 1 Model Kit
Model Number: 82121
Reviewed by Graham Brown
Although a very well detailed model, I don't find it particularly good value - hence only 4 stars. I have made well detailed twin engine models which have cost less. Unfortunately, currently it's the only 1/48 scale Tempest on the market. The good points:- it has a small photo-etched sheet for instruments & cockpit detail, paint mask, decals for 6 different versions (well, OK but you can only use 1). Underwing rockets are provided although listed in the instructions (which are very good by the way & include quite a bit of history)as "not used". But in this expensive model do we get a highly detailed engine? -er, no. Pilot figure, Invasion stripe decals? - nope. A good model but at a premium price.
