This set contains one accurate, detailed resin seat complete with quilted backpad and naturally draped molded-in late war Sutton quick-release style harness for easy painting.

 

 

Designed as a drop fit replacement for new tool Eduard kit, but can be easily made to work with older kits as well.


 

BR48398 – 1:48 Hawker Tempest V, VI Exhausts

 

 

This set consists of a pair of accurate, detailed, hollowed out exhaust stacks with mounting
 flanges & weld beads.

 

 

Designed to be a drop fit for new tool Eduard Tempest Mks V and VI kits. Can be modified to fit other Tempest kits. A simple and very visible upgrade.


BR48398 – 1:48 Hawker Tempest V Corrected deHavilland Spinner

 

 

This set contains a new detailed de Havilland 4 blade spinner with smaller & accurately shaped blade openings to replace the kit spinner in the Series I and Series II kits. new tool Eduard Tempest V.

BR48401 – 1:48 Hawker Tempest Corrected Intake Set

 

 

Contains a new radiator front casting with the concentric ring type intake shroud that is 
missing from the new Eduard Tempest V kit. Tempests not fitted with dust filters would always be fitted with the shrouding to prevent hot radiator air from entering the carburettor intake. An alternate dust filter with "cukoo clock" style doors is also included.

 

 

These were fitted to Tempests operating from unimproved forward airfields on the European mainland.


BR48402 – 1:48 Hawker Tempest Series I Mainwheels

 

 

This set consists of a pair of super detailed, accurate mainwheels as fitted to Series 1 Tempest Mk. Vs. The wheels feature subtle tire beading, logo and size data, as well as accurate front and rear hubs.

Wheels feature fine logo, tire data and beading detail. An easy and very visible upgrade for the new tool Eduard and all other Tempest kits.


 

The Tempest is one of my all time favorite aircraft. So glad we finally have a really nice series of Tempests in 48th scale now. These simple upgrades will add just that little bit of extra visual impact to your model.
