Quite an interesting beast Mark. I like those working vehicles, where function rules clearly over design.

Cheers Rob

And thats what i like about special vehicles in the army.

We use those in the civilian world, too, but they are called ARFF trucks (Airborne Rescue & Fire Fighting). In fact, a lot of civilian ones are surplus military. We don't get to call our stuff "tactical" because no one is shooting at us...usually.😁

Absolutely the best way to avoid frustration when a situation isn't going well on the Viggen, just put it aside and think things through with a fresh mind and perspective. 

Nice choice for your fill in/alternate build - will be following all the way. :popcorn:

You're speeding through the HEMTT M1147 and it's looking so good.

What was the holdup point on the Viggen?

 

Problem with the fit off a few parts.

A decal screw up.

Canopy foggy....

But wil get over it just a set back

But after the weekend back on the bench almost there on the line.

Small details to go.
