Wonderful news that your wife is coming home from the hospital and job number one is taking care of her as she recuperates.

Nice progress on the Viggen and OMG, she is BIG. Yes, some filling is needed but considering the complexity of the kit and it's resin, the overall fit is amazing.

Keep 'em comin

Great progress there Mark. 

What issues did you have with the DN masks? I've used their masks on other projects without any issues so maybe I can suggest a fix.

Carl

Everything whent Good on placing the masks on the wings and tail.

When i whant to do the feuselage xith all the curves i screwd up

I think the big problem is the mask is 2D and your modelis 3D

The masks from DN looks great but i think its notting for me

after 15 min off ugly words to get it good i ripd them off and go to mask my self

I think i have to learn how to use them

It isnt a easy camo to do even with masks

Right with Carl and I also have the DN Mask set. Of course, I never used masks before - nothing like learning on what seems the most intricate mask set available. An advice and guidance would be so greatly appreciated.:popcorn:

Keep 'em comin

Peter

Good advice take your time and dondt loos your patience when placing them

The fault will be compleet my own with the screw up

Do now the harder way mask every single piece by myself

Will take more time but will be fun.

Great progress Mark!

You will mask the splinter camouflage the oldfashioned way? Wow, that’s a real challenge!

Curious to see!

Thanks it will need time to get it right and will not go that fast like you use mask

but i will get there

Hoping to get the first paint on this week

I'm with Kai, the Viggen cammo masking done without the masks is going to need nerves of steel - but if anyone can pull it off, my money is riding on you.

Keep 'em comin

Peter

Thanks

and yes i will get there so first need more masking tape to get this done.

 

Hopfuly i have a update with some paint on the end off the week

Absolutely family first and hobbies a distant second. Hoping your wife is continuing to doing well with rehab and every day she will be better and better - just takes time.

Your Viggen is coming together mighty good - lots of sanding and filler but no where as much as I thought a limited run kit of this size and complexity would require. Can’t wait to see the Viggen in the paint shop.

Keep ‘em comin

thanks Peter

and the wife is doing fine its getting better right now but a long way to go.

and we are getting there.

 

Found a bit off free time so lets play with tape and paint.

No preshading done or fading the paint.

That will for later i think

so 3 off 4 collors on on a small part off the wing to get the idee.

Just love those Swedish splinter camos, but don't have the cojones to do one of my own.

Cheers Rob
