The Hawker Tempest was a British fighter aircraft primarily used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) in the Second World War. The Tempest was an improved derivative of the Hawker Typhoon, and one of the most powerful fighter aircraft used during the war.
The wingspan was originally greater than that of the Typhoon at 43 ft (13.1 m), but the wingtips were later "clipped" and the wing became shorter; 41 ft (12.5 m) versus 41 ft 7 in (12.7 m). The wing planform was changed to an elliptical shape to accommodate the 800 rounds of ammunition for the four 20 mm (.79 in) Hispano cannons, which were moved back further into the wing. The new elliptical wing had greater area than the Typhoon`s. However, the new wing design sacrificed the leading edge fuel tanks of the Typhoon: to make up for this loss in capacity, Hawker engineers added a new 21 in (53 cm) fuel bay in front of the cockpit, with a 76 gal (345 l) fuel tank. In addition, two inter-spar wing tanks, each of 28 gal (127 l), were fitted on either side of the centre-section and, starting with late model Tempest Vs, a 30 gal (136 l) tank was carried in the leading edge of the port wingroot, giving the Tempest a total internal fuel capacity of 162 gal (736 l).
In service, Tempests also carried two specially designed, streamlined, drop tanks of 45 gal (204 l) giving a maximum of 360 gal (1,636 l) and an operational radius of 500 mi (805 km) Another important feature of the new wing was Camm`s proposal that radiators for the new Napier Sabre IV engine were to be fitted into the leading edge of the wing inboard of the undercarriage. This eliminated the distinctive "chin" radiator associated with the Typhoon and improved aerodynamics. A further improvement of the Tempest wing over that of the Typhoon was the exceptional, flush riveted surface finish, essential on a high performance laminar flow airfoil. Fortunately for the pilots, the new wing and airfoil, and the four-bladed propeller unit, eliminated the high frequency vibrations that had plagued the Typhoon.

The Poser model has parts that you can pose using these control dials (limits are applied). You can of course also move/position these parts manually in other applications too.
Posable parts using control dials:
Cockpit [Opens/Closes the cockpit]
Rudder [Turns the rudder left and right]
Pitch [Controls the angle of the elevator]
PilotLookAround [Makes the pilot look left or right]
PilotHeadNod [Makes the pilot look up or down]
Alieron [Simultaneously controls the movement of both alierons]
Flaps [Simultaneously controls the movement of all flaps]
Propellor [Rotates both the blurred and non blurred propellor]
All control dials are grouped to the "Body".
Parts that can be hidden/shown using pose sets:
WheelsIn/WheelsOut [Hides/Shows the undercarriage]
