AC062 Hawker Tempest Mk.V No. 3 Squadron, No. 150 Wing, RAF, Newchurch, England, 1944 1:72 Scale L=5.75", W=6.75" Hawker Tempest Mk V JF-Z as based with No. 3 Sqn at Newchurch in June 1944, piloted by Flt Lt R van Lierde. Remy van Lierde was a Belgian pilot who served first with the Belgian Air Force and then with the Royal Air Force. He was transferred to No. 3 Squadron, Newchurch in April 1944. During his distinguished wartime career in which he earned the reputation as a leading WWII fighter ace, he rose to the rank of RAF Squadron Leader as well as being awarded the DFC and two bars. He returned to Belgium and the Belgian Air Force, retiring in 1968. He died in 1990 aged 74. Hawker Tempest Mk V Designed to improve upon the successful Typhoon, the RAF's Hawker Tempest was first flown on February 24th, 1943. Unproductive in its intended role as an interceptor, the Tempest underwent improvements in fuel storage, a new wing and a redesigned cockpit. With its proven armament of 4 x 20mm cannons the Hawker assumed the fighter-bomber role with ease and exhibited the performance of a top-flight fighter. Its excellent low-altitude performance made it one of the preferred tools for dealing with the German V-1 flying bombs. Oxford Diecast "Oxford Aviation" diecast airplanes feature: Diecast metal and plastic construction. Realistic panel lines, antennas, access panels and surface details. Permanently retracted landing gear. Presentation stand to display the aircraft "in flight". Fixed, non-spinning plastic propellers. No pilot figures.
