THE TEMPEST IS going forward as a new project, with a target in-service date from 2035. It will almost certainly replace the current Eurofighter Typhoon fleet, used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and eight other air arms.
The UK-based BAE Systems is leading Team Tempest, with partners that include Leonardo, MBDA, Rolls-Royce. There's no model kit of the future Tempest released yet, though several are in development with garage companies.
Our bet for a future Tempest kit is with Allen B. Ury and his excellent California-based Fantastic Plastic.

The Tempest will doubtless change as it develops, but even now surely supplies a real-life look at the worlds of the future.
