I also still have to "splinter" my Viggen.

Hey Viggen, maybe it's an idea to do a Gripen in the splinter camo after this one, just to see how it looks!

Yupp Globe, i went through all the images. Now dont try to paint the decals by hand on the "cat".  I actually tried to handpaint some of the numbers on my old Viggen. Looked like pure crap, but you are probably more steady on the hands then me.   :)

Yeah!  I have seen a drawing of the Gripen in that great camo-scheme. Its kind of dissapointing, it does not wear it as well as Viggen. But it did look good.  Gripen is a model i never have built so far, want to build one of them also soon. Going to use the NATO-scheme on that one.   ;D

Btw how is it going with the Viggen model?  :)

Gathering dusk, sitting on its fuselage fuel tank fins. Gear is painted and ready to be attached, just the camo, decals and canopy need to be done. It's a 1/72 kit, so not buying new paints for it, so the final paint scheme may be a bit off.
