Eduard 1/48 Tempest Mk.II Weekend (84190)

This time I am going to show you new Eduard 1/48 Tempest Mk.II Weekend (84190). As you can guess, we get yet another version of the famous British aircraft in popular scale. Nevertheless, it comes in a bit more affordable boxing, which might be attractive for some modelers. The main difference is that there are no masks or PE parts. Overall packaging is typical for this brand, so all frames come in plastic bags. Let's open them and take a closer look together. Note that there will be also videos with various useful add-ons which are sold separately.
By the way, here you can read review with the Limited Edition of this kit.

Watch this video where I show all parts even closer.

This video will tell you more about handy Photoetch set from the same brand.

Video above will show you useful masks for the aircraft.

We are going to start with the first large frame. Here you will find two types of the propeller as well as some cockpit walls.

Landing gear wheels should be glued out of several parts. Overall quality is fine, but I would recommend to replace them with Brassin add-on.

Cockpit should be assembled out of several parts. Even standard out of the box version would look great in the finished state.

Yes, engine is replicated with a simple plastic tab. It will be barely visible in the cowling, but Eduard also offers Brassin option for assembly of the aircraft with open cowling.

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

Wing should be glued out of three parts. Flaps are molded in, and you will have to buy a separate photoetch in order to have them dropped.

Clear film for fuel tanks will be useful for some of the assembly versions.

Another clear sprue is packed separately and carries canopy parts. Molding quality looks great, but masks should be purchased separately.

Eduard included two decals sheets in the kit. Both are printed by manufacturer itself, so you don't have to worry about the quality. Moreover, there are even some cockpit decals included.

Stencils look great, but will take some time to apply on the model. You can see all markings on the photo below.

Assembly manual is typical for this brand. I show all pages in the video-review.

Aircraft model should be already available for purchase. In my opinion it is a great choice for modelers who would like to save a bit of money and still get a modern plastic out of the box. Moreover, you can buy additional accessories from the same brand. Keep in mind that even standard plastic comes with plenty of various features and should be fun to assemble.
