René Bartlomé built a 1/5-scale Tempest Mk. V, design by Olin Vitasek. He made his own molds for the model, and it was powered by a Meiss R100 in-line. Unfortunately the model was lost on the second flight. After some time René decided to build a new one, but this time much lighter!


René has two building threads at This gallery will be updated with new photos as the project proccedes.
