:popcorn::popcorn::popcorn: (I'm the guy in the middle)

Way to go, following intently and taking notes as mine (#10890) is still a ways away. Thanks for taking so many in progress pics as they absolutely show the work involved and your meticulous modeling. Which glue(s) are you using and for which parts?

I've never seen a kit cause such a stir in the modeling world.

Keep 'em comin

Indeed a nice start on the Viggen. I hope you will do her in splinter camo. Always liked it more on a Viggen than NMF. The Draken though, I prefer in NMF, cant't tell why.

Cheers Rob

Yesit will be spintercamo

Nice start. For a resin - and resin shrinks somewhat, whichever you choose - and multimaterial kit (for instance the tail section is printed, not molded), the fit is not bad at all 👍.

Hubert

yes indeedbut notting to bad so far

we can handel a bit off putty and sanding its a part off the fun

Yes the tail is 3D printed but i think the master for the resin also iff you look at some places

Thanks for sharing Mark. The fit looks pretty good as Hubert said.

I'm liking the engineering they've done around the intakes. 

Carl

Wow you have on the bench what I‘m longing for Mark. 
Grest start and I will follow your build closely. Please reserve a place in the first row for me.

As soon as mine arrives everything will be removed from the bench and I‘ll start immediately. Already have the masks for the splinter-camo (DN-Models) and the colors (AK Real Colors).

Wow, the detail on the inside of those intakes really pops in those photos.

Didn't bite on the Viggen as a bit too big to display with the space I have but now getting some serious jealousy pangs....

Great progress and the details inside the intakes are stunning Mark!

The kit seems to be worth every cent. Can’t wait to get mine in the desk.

If you are going for the AK Real Color range I can give you the numbers. They really work great and I use them solely for my builds.

Stunning work on the seat Mark. The kit really comes with amazing details and you bring them to life!

The head cushion is one of them and which is the other one?
