Nick Ziroli:

The HAWKER TEMPEST is scaled at 2.35 inches to the foot. The plans show an all built-up structure drawn full size and includes the installation of flaps and retracts. The retracts shown are available from Hank Likes, although other similar retracts may also be used. Check out our Giant Scale Retracts. Full size templates are also shown for all ribs, formers and other various parts.

The model may be built as a MK V or a MK VI by making the additions of the wing leading edge radiators. OR.. The model may also be converted to a MK II by using the fiberglass cowl from our 90 inch Sea Fury. All three versions are shown on the plans. See our scale Struts and Tailwheel elsewhere.

Accessory parts available are fiberglass cowls, clear plastic canopy, aluminum spinner (for Mk V or Mk VIwith machined aluminum back plate and vacuum-formed dummy exhaust stacks and elevator shrouds. See our Struts and Tailwheel elsewhere in our Giant Scale Retracts section.

Primary construction is light plywood, balsa and spruce using conventional “Tried and True” materials and building techniques. All structures (with the exception of the rudder) are built-up and are either sheeted with 1/8″ or 3/32″ balsa. The rudder is fabric covered as per the prototype. No foam is used what-so-ever. A four to six channel radio is required. The Tempest uses 5.50 diameter wheels and a 1/5 scale WW II pilot figure.
