SH32054 Tempest Mk.II Hi-tech in 1/32 - another Tempest kit, due for release in November

We are going to release yet another member of our 1/32 Tempest kit family, the radial-engined Mk.II version, considered by many as the most beautiful Tempest version ever. The first of our Mk.II releases will be of course in the Hi Tech format. Comparing it with the Mk.V version, you may find several aspects of the kit altered a bit. The kit is of course to contain a different forward fuselage section and what´s more, also a sprue with rocket projectiles and their under wing racks will be comprised in the kit box.

1/32 Tempest Mk.II - finished model

Accomplished Prague modeller, Mr. Mila Hraban had received  pre-production sprues of the new Tempest kit in order to test the fit of the parts and also build a showcase model that would be featured on our blog. Couple of days ago he finished his task and brought his model to Special Hobby HQ here and I was really happy to be able to make the following photos. These were taken using EFS 18-55mm lenses, the close up details then with +4 conversion lens allowing to show much even more detail than visible by naked eye on the real model.
