    1/72 - Saab 37 Viggen by Special Hobby

    An early splinter camouflaged SK 37 with yellow fin numbers and unpainted wing edges! Odd but interesting choice! These are seldom seen.
  2. Absolutely brilliant! Great finish!
  3. Thanks! I also used that sheet, but decided to make XZ103 without the special painted fin (which meant that I had to fix "EF" on my own, and use the Airfix blue/red decal on the fin. I used Dark Sea Grey Gunze H331 and Neutral Grey H53. I don't know if it is spot on, but it looks OK to me.
  4. Having built the one-seater I am really impressed that this one could be built like this. Really nice work!
  5. A fun project to try to make something out of the 25-year-old Airfix kit: The kit is not that bad, recessed - although somewhat wide - panel lines and decent fit. But it is rather simplified, as if it was an upscaled 1/144 kit. I used a Neomega resin cockpit, which needed some fettling to fit. I also scratch-built FOD covers and lots of small details. Additional panel lines had to be scribed. I also used Quickboost air intakes and outlets and a Master pitot tube. Landing gears are pretty decent and needed only a little extra detailing: The decals are from a Model Alliance sheet and the model is painted with Gunze acrylics. This is the kind of build where you can spend hour after hour of extra detailing. But this was enough for me, so many compromises had to be made. But modelling must be fun, and this was fun! Thanks for watching!

    CH-46 / KV-107 STGB Chat

    My decision is Academy's 1/48 KV-107-II in Swedish Air Force colours. I hope that aftermarket decals (they are in progress) will be released this spring.

    Best and worst Spitfire?

    Very interesting! Thank you all for the input! I am planning a thematic Spitfire build, from first to last, best to worst and a few more.
  8. There is one simple explanation: Pilot Replicas is a hobby project run by one enthusiast and a few of his friends on their spare time. And the past two years, his ordinary job has taken too much time from this project. But I hope that in 2019 both Claes and his friends will find time to finish at least this one.
  9. Well, actually I know a little more than I wrote. So just wait and see. You might be surprised...
  10. I have built the two-seater, and the weight was enough.

    Best and worst Spitfire?

    (This one is moved from the Spitfire thread) I am planning a thematic build, and have two questions to you all Spitfire experts: - Which Spitfire version was the ultimate Spitfire? And I mean compared to contemporary fighters in service, not compared to other Spitfire versions. - And, which one was the worst? Still compared to contemporary aircraft. Suggestions so far: Best: Early Mk I, Mk XIVe and IX. Worst: Mk. II, V (late in service), V trop., VI 21, 24. But all suggestions are welcome!

  14. Recently, I heard rumours that this one actually still is in progress. However, I know nothing about release date etc, but there is still hope that will see this one one day. From what I have heard before, this version is the first to be released:
