SH32049 a SH32052 Tempest Mk.V 1/32 - decal sheet artwork

For both the 1/32 Special Hobby Tempest Mk.V models (SH32049 - standard release, SH32052 - Hi Tech release), the decal sheet artwork has already been designed. It has been broken up to several sheets, there are two sheets common to both releases, one of them with the national insignia, while the other caters for a full set of stencilling the Tempest carried both in its interior and on the exterior surface alike, and of special interest may be also the marking used on the drop fuel tank pylons. The fuselage code letters, serial numbers and other markings appropriate for each machine are offered in a sheet particular to either boxing. Model kit no SH32049 leaves the modeller with four decal options, the Hi Tech model no.SH32052 comes with five schemes.
