Hawker Tempest Mk.II corrected cowling (CUT) for Special Hobby and Eduard kits
BEFORE ORDERING PLEASE READ TERMS FOR ORDERING AND SHIPPING
This is a 3D designed and printed part that has been designed to correct the cowling on the kits. This is a strange phenomenon that it seems that the kit manufactures cannot get the Centaurus engine cowling correct. However even more alarming is that on the Special Hobby release of the kit, they have an option to have the port side with the doors open and engine exposed. With this option they have got the design correct, so this is really disappointing as they corrected the resin parts but have not corrected the injection moulded kit parts. See the forth picture
The main issue is that the lower opening door on the cowling is larger than the top one, however on the kit fuselage parts they have them equal in size.
The third picture shows the new printed cowling in place as opposed to the kit fuselage.
Note I have added a panel wash to show the fine detail that has been created to try and match the kit fine detail.
Please see the other listing for the Tempest cowling if you are wanting to model the closed engine option, or the Eduard kit that does not have the extra parts for the exposed engine.
Please do allow the standard 2-3 weeks order processing time.
