BarracudaCast 1/48 Hawker Tempest V Corrected Radiator Intake First Look
|Date of Review||April 2019||Manufacturer||BarracudaCast|
|Subject||Hawker Tempest V Corrected Radiator Intake||Scale||1/48|
|Pros||Beautiful detail correction for the Eduard kit||Cons||Nothing noted|
|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||$7.95|
Here is one of the latest releases from Barracudacast, this time providing a corrected radiator intake for the Eduard 1/48 Tempest V kit. This set corrects the kit parts with the concentric ring shroud missing from the plastic parts and also provides an optional dust filter for forward-based Tempests operating from the European mainland.
Thiis set is one of several updates to the Eduard kits (both the 'Series I' and 'Series II' releases) that also includes a nice replacement pilot's seat, hollowed-out exhaust stacks, propeller spinner, and several main wheel options. Each of these sets is inexpensive, and if used with either the Overtrees or Weekend editions of the Eduard Tempest kits, will still be a relatively inexpensive but more accurate project.
My sincere thanks to BarracudaCals Decals for this review sample!
