Our 1/32 scale model of this iconic fighter plane was first issued in a Hi-tech boxing, which is becoming almost sold out these days and now we would like to offer the modeler a basic version of the kit, which means it doesn’t contain the extra bonuses of resin (PUR) and photo-etched parts. The plastic parts come via as many as eight sprues of grey styrene and one clear plastic sprue and the surface throughout benefits from neatly engraved panel lines and rivet details. During the build, the modeller is guided by a highly detailed A4-size full colour instruction booklet. The decal sheets (there are three of them) and the camouflage option schemes offer in total four different machines. The Camouflage A represents NV969 / SA-A machine flown by Sqn.Ldr. Warren ???Smokey??? Schrader, DFC and Bar (out of his total 12 kills he achieved 9 and ?? in the Tempest). Camo B offers JN862/JF-Z adorned with invasion ID stripes and it was a usual mount of F/Lt. Remy van Lierde, DFC and Bar, a Belgian in RAF service with 44 victories over V-1 missiles. The third camouflage option is EJ705/W2-X with a smart kangaroo artwork on the fuselage side and was flown by Australian Plt. Off. F.A. Lang . The camouflage scheme option D brings the modeller SN165/ZD-V machine, in which cockpit its pilot Sqn. Ldr. Emanuel Barnett Lyons, DFC experienced a rather arduous story with a fortunate ending. The decal sheets cater also for a complete set of stencils, including also items for the cockpit and the external fuel tanks.
