    Marvellous stuff Colin! I'd seen the MDC Typhoon before, and the Tempest looks intersesting. Don't know if I'd like to do a complete 1/32nd scale model in resin, but the really interesting thing for me is the 60lb Rocket Projectiles and rails. I've been trying for over 20 years to get a set in 1/32nd for the Revell Typhoon I converted back then, but since an old white metal set was discontinued, I've had no luck. I could make the RP's thenselves with little problem, but the rails and fittings are a bit of a major task.
    So, I'll be contacting MDC to see if they sell the RP's as a separate kit - I think Daniel (109 Roaming) will be too!
    Thanks very much for the info mate - very helpful!
