I haven't been able to find one yet either, but there was talk a while back of MDC producing one to go with their Typhoon, and I found these WARPIGS MASKS at Sprue Brothers, so I'm assuming that there is something out there. Perhaps it's a resin kit ?

There was a vacform, from a short-lived "company," called "Touchdown." A master modeller, Alan Dent, made a male mould, and had a few extra pulled by a local company. These extras were taken by a nameless person, boxed, and sold, without Alan's knowledge (there was a Sea Fury, as well.) It's doubtful if there were ever more than 10 of each, and Alan has never had any more made.

According to reports, MPM are due to produce a 1/32 Tempest next year.
