Brand: Airfix

Product Code: 5063129000820



One of the finest aeroplanes of the Second World War, the Hawker Tempest V could trace its design back to the Hurricane fighters.  The plane entered Royal Air Force service in early 1944.  Although this was still a big aeroplane for a single engined fighter, its airframe was light and it was powered by the massively powerful 24 cylinder Napier Sobre engine, giving the new fighter spectacular performance. 

Making its first flight on 2nd September 1942, the Hawker Tempest featured a newly designed laminar flow wing, much thinner than the wing used on its predecessor, allowing the new fighter to slip through the air at incredible speed.
