Eduard 1/48 Tempest Mk.V Series 2 Weekend (84170)

This article is dedicated to Eduard 1/48 Tempest Mk.V Series 2 Weekend (84170). This is a fresh version of the famous British fighter aircraft. As you can guess, whole kit is based on the new plastic and should be interesting for modelers who would like to get a bit more attractive price. It is a standard thing for Weekends, so let's open this blue box and take a look at parts.
By the way, here you can read review with WW1 aircraft in the same scale.

Watch this video-review where I show all parts closer.

One more video will show you PE upgrade set for this model.

We are going to start with sprue which is dedicated to propellers and some cockpit parts. It is good that propellers come as single-piece parts

Next we continue with mix of small parts for internal and external features. In the middle you would find cockpit floor and radiator parts.

Separate sprue is given to rockets and landing gear parts. Note also cockpit wall frames which are molded as one-piece elements.

Both fuselage halves are molded together with tail fin. External features include recessed panel lines and rivets.

The same details can be found on wing parts. Note that flaps are molded in and you will have to buy a separate PE set in order to copy them in dropped position.

Clear frame is packed into separate plastic bag. Molding quality looks great, but there are no masks because we deal with Weekend kit here.

Yes, there is one more transparent sprue with fuel tank halves.

Decals sheet is printed in Eduard, you will find all necessary symbols for several markings. Note that we even get some cockpit decals. Both markings can be seen on the photo below.

Assembly manual is typical for this brand. You can check all pages in the video-review.

New kit should be already available for purchase. In one box you will get decent plastic with nice decals. Such package should be fine for modelers who would like to assemble a basic build without adding any accessories. Well, it can be opposite too - maybe some modelers would want to have a "clean" slate where they will install various add-ons. In any case model should look great in the finished state, so I recommend to check this Tempest if you would like to build a WW2 aircraft in popular scale.
