Hawker Tempest Airplane Models

Explore our collection of diecast models of the Hawker Tempest - Expertly Crafted, Historically Significant, and Collectible Aircraft Models.

The Hawker Tempest was a British fighter aircraft that served during World War II, renowned for its power, speed, and versatility. Developed as a successor to the famous Hawker Typhoon, the Tempest featured improved aerodynamics, a more powerful engine, and enhanced armaments. It was one of the fastest propeller-driven aircraft in service at the time.

Notable for its effectiveness in the air superiority role as well as in ground attack missions, the Tempest was instrumental in countering the V-1 flying bomb threat over England. Variants of the Tempest included the Tempest Mk V, known for its successful operations in Western Europe, and the Tempest Mk II, which featured a radial engine. The aircraft’s significant contributions to the Allied war effort, particularly in the latter stages of WWII, and its reputation as a formidable dogfighter make it a subject of great interest for military aviation enthusiasts and model collectors, especially those with a passion for late-war fighter aircraft development.
