Hawker Tempest Mk II - Special Hobby - 1/48 - Pakistanese Air Force

This my latest build, made from the Special Hobby and the Eduard boxings. Why 2 kits ? Simply because I screwed up part of the first build and, because I never give up and like the type,  decided to carry on the build and bought another kit ... Pretty good kit, despite some minor inaccuracies with the engraving under the fuselage. I was not fond of the decals as colors are not always well aligned - especially for the stencils. I did peel off the varnish top layer on the decals to get that "painted on" look. This has to be done gently otherwise you might end up tearing off the paint as well. Color scheme is from the Pakistanese Air Force.
