Tempest Mk. V Series 2 Eduard ProfiPACK edition

I was getting a little desperate lately since this model kit I had ordered was late.

I should have bought it years ago when it was readily available. Why I did not buy it then I will never know. Pierre Clostermann was my war hero when as a teenager I had read his book.


Buying Eduard Tempest would not have been an impulse buying. Last month I found it was still available from Model Hobbies in the U.K. I did not hesitate a second and ordered it. But it was late and stuck somewhere until this morning when I got notified that it was…


I was a bit apprehensive since my last order from Model Hobbies was left outside the door by the postperson. Anyone could have taken it…

So I quickly went to my mailbox down the street and sure enough the precious parcel was there.

I don’t intend to build it right away. This is why I bought the Weekend edition also to get some building experience before tackling the ProfiPack edition.

    What does “Weekend Edition” mean?

      It means it doesn’t have extras like photo-etch seat belts and detail parts or resin tires or engine. It used to be a bigger distinction when Eduard’s basic kits were simpler.

        I am thinking of buying a second one…, but I am resisting the temptation.

        Thanks for the response. I appreciate your taking the time to respond to a novice.

      The video is instructive. Some cockpit parts are fragile.

        I can imagine what with all of that tubular structure!
