  1. I may be wrong but the underside fit of the nacelle is as it should be. It forms part of the flap and allows the flap to move. It shouldn't be fixed in position and so doesn't need filling
  2. Wowzers, that's rough. I'm building one at the moment and the fuselage on mine is nothing like yours. As has been said send eduard an email and I'm sure they will replace this for you. They're normally pretty good at sending replacements
  3. Apologies I missed answering this earlier. I use uschi van der rosten rigging. Fine I think. I'll double check the thickness tomorrow when I have access to my modelling kit.
  4. Thanks for the comments chaps. The lozenge pattern is decals. The wing sections come as one piece bit bit rib strips are separate. Took some serious setting solutions to get them to go down and even then they lifted at the edges. Had to resort to tamiya extra thin to get them to settle at the edges.
  5. Hi folks Having never built a WW1 aircraft before I was very generously donated this kit at one of our club nights. The mojo was flagging and this was something to get stuck into. Thoroughly enjoyed building this one and I can definitely see more WW1 in the future. Comments very welcome
  6. Great work as always iain. It's coming along really nicely
  7. Thank you for taking the time to reply and provide the link. I should have been more clear initially as I do have an idea how many pods could be carried under each station. i was wondering if are any images showing an actual load, rather than, for example, loading up with 12 pods which would, I guess, be unlikely to happen.
  8. Hi Folks, Im giving some thought to enter with either an Academy C and building her with rocket pods. I know the C used the LAU 10, LAU 3 and the 32 but im struggling to find any decent images showing the types of loadouts that were seen; could anyone point me in the right direction please to give me some reference? Cheers
  9. This looks like its going to a great build Dave- ill be following along keenly!

    SAAF Gripens

    Thank you for this. They do look really good but the cost plus shipping charge makes these mega expensive. I'll give them some thought
  11. Nice subject John. I built this in 24th scale 4 years ago, it does look nice when it's done. Here's a few bits that might help? Pic of EP436 And some info from the thread I posted before I started the project. Some interesting things came up. My thread

    SAAF Gripens

    Thanks very much. Those bomb racks do appear quite a common thing on SAAF Gripens. I cant seem to find any and there's no aftermarket ones that I can find anywhere either.

    SAAF Gripens

    You would think they would carry them, photos are scarce aren’t they. I think I’ll load it up with 4 GBU-12’s and 2 x Iris T’s just because it would look great. Thanks for for the help and pointers

    Thank you, that's really helpful!
  16. Hi Guys, Im soon going to be making a start on Kitty Hawk's 48th Gripen A/C and wanting to model it in the markings of the SAAF. Having carried out numerous searches online of SAAF aircraft i have come up with loads of images of them flying without ordnance. I like to model my aircraft carrying something (because its cool) and so was wondering what a "typical" SAAF loadout would be. I am aware that the Gripen can carry a wide variety of ordnance and there are loads of images of Czech and Swedish aircraft carrying lots of types of ordnance and could model the SAAF aircraft carrying what ive found in these images, but i would like to build something that is fairly accurate to the SAAF. I am looking to place an order for the right fuel tank(s) as am aware the one in the box isnt quite right and do like the idea of some AM ordnance too. I'd, therefore, be really grateful if someone with some knowledge could point me in the right direction. Many thanks Ant
  17. Looks great so far. It is a lovely little kit, looking forward to seeing your progress
