Eduard has released a photoetch upgrade set for its new tooled Tempest Mk.V which in its self is a great kit. This upgrade set is a single large Photo etch sheet.

In the box is:

  • 1 photoetch detail set
  • 1 instruction sheet


The first area of the upgrade is for is the engine intake, the set provides the mesh for all four surfaces of the Intake and make a big difference with the look once complete.

Next are parts for the two main landing gear bays, in four stages. The first stage is simple. On stage to you have to remove the location pins of part E68 and E69 from the original kit to allow then to fit. Also at stage two it refers to part E39 which should actually be part E32. I would also suggest that the parts 19, 20, 21 and 22 are installed before the kit parts E71 and E73. This will make it a lot easier to install them.

Then the main landing gear covers are replaced with Photo etch parts and this was easy and look great when complete.

Last is the engine inlet flap replacement, this too was a simple install.


This was a great addition to the fantastic Tempest kit, which I highly recommend.

Thanks go to Eduard for providing this kit to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them.
