Nice progress for sure and looking at the instructions, it's part 66 that's the issue. and it sure looks like you're right in reversing the order of construction.

Keep 'em comin

Peter

yes Peter i sugest that part B05 (rat bay) will be placed before O14 thats the air intake

i think there is room enough to do it that way but dryfit before

the fit off the 2 parts off the feuselage ask for some sanding so take your time

i sugset that you place the airscoops after the feuselage whent togheter because the are just at the seam and that will make it harder for sanding and scribbing.

That whas it for now.

Back to the bench and do some more work on the mirage

Gotta say that, in as much as I don’t really fancy the splinter camo, the shape of the Viggen is certainly not only impressive, but quite handsome, in my eyes, at least. Of course, it pales against the pure sexiness of the Draken, but still one of the best-looking of this generation.

Nice work, Mark 👍 !
