Tempest Mk.V - last tooling blocks

In the photos below, which were taken only yesterday, are the very last two model tooling blocks of the Tempest Mk.V project that our mouldmakers are dealing with. One of them is a electroplated mould with a nose section for a Mk.V model while the other is a standard milled metallic mould containing smaller parts common for all verisons of the Tempest, ie for the radial-engined Mk.II Tempest (the star-like shape of the engine is unmistakable) and the Mk.VI as well. We hope to test both these moulds sometimes during the next week.
