Hawker Tempest

American Modeller's Hawker Tempest

The Tempest was the fastest medium-altitude fighter in service with Royal Air Force during the later part of WW2. With a top speed of 435-mph hour at 17,000 feet the Tempest was the mainstay of England's defence against the German V-1's accounting for more than one third of the 1,800 "buzz" bombs destroyed during the summer of 1944. Tempests were also employed as interceptors, fighter-bombers, bomber escorts and for ground-attack on tanks and stationary targets.

This one-inch-to-the-foot model designed by Walter A. Musciano can be powered by a .29 to 60 cubic inch engine. The model is of classic sheet balsa construction. Lots of information including colour scheme on the plan. Some construction information is available on the airplanes and rockets web site.

About the plan source:

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the Hawker Tempest or any other PDF plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.
To order a scaled plan please copy the plan url or the following ID (ID:81756) and send us a message with the desired wingspan and any other info you may find useful.

  • Articles and Instructions if we have them for the given plan.

About our printers:

We use professional quality laser OCÉ and Canon printers/copiers, these printers use toner, not ink so the printings will be durable and waterproof.

Bond Tracing paper: Bond Tracing paper, 90 grams per square meter.
Polyester film: High quality polyester sheet incredibly durable, will resist cuts and glue and can be washed (I use it as sail material on my RC sailboats).


We will use brown padded envelopes for folded plans and hard cardboard tubes with plastic ends for rolled plans.


We ship from Portugal, Europe and use the reliable Portuguese mail system CTT.
CTT has delivery agreements with different entities on each country so if you´re from the US you may have your order delivered by USPS, in the UK may be Royal Mail and so on.
