Special Hobby’s new tool 1/32 “HI-TECH” Hawker Tempest Mk. II and 1/72 Spitfire Mk XXII model kits are now available.
As previously reported, the Tempest model includes “finely detailed and 3D-designed resin parts” as well as a PE fret with interior and exterior parts and decal options for five aircraft. A number of options are also said to be included, such as wing-mounted rockets / mounts and additional parts to represent the radial-powered variant.
The Spitfire offers “four sprues with nicely detailed styrene parts” and one clear sprue as well as photo-etched parts and 3D-designed resin exhausts and undercarriage wheels. The decal sheet provides marking options for six aircraft, including four RAuxAF Spitfires and aircraft serving with South Rhodesia and the Egyptian Air Force.
