Which Viggen paintjob?
« on: April 06, 2007, 12:36:20 AM »
Help me out guys and vote for your favourite!

Im thinking of building myself another JA37 Viggen, been 11-13 years since the last one. When i buy my models i usally also buy the paint at the same time. But this time i cant decide for which scheme i should go for.  :)

I go for green camo!! It must be the most difficult to do, but you know, the pritiest is always the most difficult, or expensive ;D

So, GO GREEN CAMOU!!!

Exactly  ;D

So how much all together including paint, brushes, sprayers, model etc. is it to do a model airplane?

The camo are not that hard to do, it just takes alot of time.  I´ve done it before on a AJ37 Viggen scale 1/72 for my cousins son. One of the best models i ever built. I also did a J35 Draken with a very detailed paintjob for him.

Today none of them exists, kids just dont appriciante the job you put into one of these models. They preffer to blow them up or see if they really can fly.   :(

Mothers are the biggest monsters of planes!!!!!!!!

Have you seen the photos of the Jaguar in the link I posted??
Have you seen it has no decals almost? I don't know how she got rid of them (without intention, bla,bla,bla), but I culd never find them again!!! :o

I know, i would of loved to have kept those two models for myself.  ;D

Mothers always feel the need to wipe stuff that are dusty, often with a damp rag or towel. This tends to remove the decals  just as effective as the dust.  8)
