1/32 Tempest Mk.V series 1 – a model by Petr Picha (CZ)

   This truly amazing 1/32 scale Special Hobby Tempest model has been built by Czech modeller Petr Picha who also made a good use of a number of CMK resin sets that helped him to skyrocket the finished model among the very best of the contemporary modelling scene. These CMK sets were: 5110 Tempest – EngineSet, 5108 Tempest – Strenghtened Main Undercarriage Legs, Q32244Tempest/Typhoon – Tail Wheel with Strenghtened Leg, 5109 Tempest – Armament Setfor Stbd Side Wing (the port wing ammunition box was borrowed from a Tempest Mk.II kit) and Q32243 Tempest Mk.V/Typhoon Mk.I – Main Wheels Early Type.

   What makes his model rather unique is the use of several scratch-built items, namely the fuselage fuel tank and the wireless compartment aft of the cockpit.
