Pacific Coast 1/32 scale Hawker Tempest Series II Mk.Vc

Pacific Coast Models’ deluxe 1/32 scale Hawker Tempest Mk.Vc plastic model kit includes a generous amount of photoetched metal and a handful of well-molded resin parts, including a substantial main-gear bay. A large decal sheet with a surprising number of stencils takes care of the five decal options, which include a postwar overall silver Tempest for those who want something unusual. Be aware there are a couple of numbering mistakes with the decals — for instance, the squadron leader pennants are reversed for SA-M- and JF-M-coded airframes — but you can easily tell by reading the squadron number on the pennant itself.
