    Hello!
    This is my first posting here.
    I'm Dalibor, student, modeller from Belgrade, Serbia.
    In this topic, I will show you my Hawker Tempest, 1/72 Academy.
    It is very nice to build, real pleasure. Only decals are little thick, but it is not big problem. Hot water, mr softer and water-sand paper...
    Model is painted with some Russian-Ukrainian nitro authentic paints. Tempest is gift from my friend on some local competition.
    Almost to forget, it wears Closterman's markings.

    Some pics.

    Cheers,
    Dalibor

    Nice job!
    I could spend all day looking at a sweet Tempest build and that's a sweet Tempest build. 8)

    I have also built that particular ship, though I didn't share your 'thick decal' problem, quite the opposite in fact; the decals were thin, brittle and extremely delicate to affix. Nor was it particularly nice or easy to build.

    It was the Eduard 48th scale kit, many moons ago now.

    Hello and welcome from England. Very nice Tempest there. I'm working on one at this moment, the old Esci 1/48th scale kit, shown elsewhere in this section.
