    Finally all the blu-tack is on. Just need to cover the grey bits now.

    Thanks for the info Rob, that's great! I was planning on doing her as around 1987ish, fitted with slipper tanks and the ALQ jammer only, no missiles on this one. It's a shame that hardly any kits include those practice bomb dispensers that loads of jets seemed to carry in the 80s.

    That's a great idea! Thanks!

    I'm testing out the blu-tack and tape method just on the tailplanes first.

    Thanks Redstaff, so the tape didn't peel off the grey paint then?!

    Peter, thanks for selling me this one, I'm really enjoying the build. So far it doesn't seem as bad as I feared from some reviews - though it did take quite a bit of sanding at the seams, and some encouragement to squeeze together in places, mostly rear engine navelles and the slipper tanks. Definitely worth building in my opinion.

    Thanks Filler, sounds good advice to me!

    Dark sea grey spray applied! After it dries over night I'll start stick blu-tack over for the green pattern then cover with masking tape. First time I've attempted this, I've always hand painted the green but usually ended up slightly disappointed, so I bought a can of Tamiya AS-30. Any tips for this method?
  10. Great progress! I know what you mean about staring too long at a perceived problem. Fot what it's worth that tailplane and fin assembly looks spot-on to me. Interesting point about how to support her while spraying. I'm at the same stage with my Buccaneer and also limited by shallow exhausts. I'm going to leave off the airbrake assembly and rather crudely 'shove a rod up the back end' for want of a better phrase! I'm sure that would work with your Victor too.

    I've had better fitting slippers ...

    Don't give up! Can you handpaint over the green? Or how about do this as an all over grey Jag and get another from ebay to do in camo with your decals?

    I decided against the whole wing fold thing and just glued them down!
  14. Looks like you're having a 'barrel' of fun there! An interesting subject, never seen a kit of one of these before. I think a collection of Swedish jets could be a good project one day! Tunnan, Lansen, Draken and Viggen.

    Thanks, I did see those ones but I'm after an actual hinged one if it's out there? Otherwise maybe two tiny jewellery hinges perhaps ... Or maybe best just to glue the wings down! I think I may be over-stretching my abilities.
