  1. Thanks guys, much appreciated did attempt the tail one, far too small for me though!!!
  2. HI, Finished this Draken a week or so ago, lovely kit, went together really nicely. Replaced the chunky pitot tube for a model master one, rest is pretty much oob, finished as 35604 of the Swedish Air Force. Such a shame theyre not the easiest of kits to get hold of!!

  3. Thanks for all the comments I used Mr Hobby 330 (Dark green) and 331 (Dark Sea grey) as it seemed close enough to the photos i was using!! I reckon thats probably quite close to Humbrol 163/164 which are the RAF Camo colours if i remember correctly..... Jon
  4. Fantastic job on a difficult kit, really looks the part Amazing to see what can be done by talented individuals as yourself on these somewhat basic/dated kits, great work
  5. Fantastic! Love the 101 and you've done it proud. Cracking livery and weathered beautifully
  6. Fantastic build, cracking scheme. Really nicely done
  7. Another one that i picked up a while ago, so thought i may as well have a stab! Had read how bad the fit was so bought some extra filler, glad i did...... the fuselage halves dont seem to be the same height, and pretty much everything needed filler(which is my least favourite part of this hobby, so didnt do it as well as i should really!!) . I liked the cockpit though Anyway, finished as No.61 of the Armee De L'Air, not the best of pics as it started to rain again!!!!

  8. Beautiful finish, love the subtle weathering, and the greys look spot on
  9. Thank you for all the comments, very grateful 3 of the 4 fuselage bits were ok, but one part was quite warped it seemed so needed a lot of convincing to join the other parts! the engines didn't fit particularly well either. Maybe mine was just a bad one or had been damaged in transit as i didn't see too many other complaints when i looked Jon
  10. Beautiful build, great finish and a fantastic scheme on a lovely plane
  11. Hi, Bought this ages ago, started it, fought with it, gave up, started again, fought again and now am calling it done!! Had some real fitting issues, and was gutted to find out i had to paint the propeller ends myself( the airfix one has decals!!) It did however prompt me to build a little diarame/backscene thing!

  12. Hi, I picked up a very damaged 1:72 Draken a little while back, and have had enough of it now so am calling it done!!!( have just started a Hasegawa one, a tad better ) The revell model is a long way from accurate, but this one had its nose was broken, no pitot tube, no wing numbers, no front wheel, no tanks and several other cosmetic bits...... I gave it a Model-master pitot tube (which i sprayed yellow and then hand painted the black and silver stripes after attempts with decals didnt go so well!), bit of paint, sprayed some big numbers onto the wings, rebuilt the nose and back end, tried to repair the canopy, found a vaguely acceptable nose wheel etc etc!! Its not brilliant, i know, but has been a bit of fun to do while building other proper kits!
