JAS-39 Gripen Wheels - For The Revell Kit 1:72 Eduard Brassin This set from Eduard in their brassin range is a direct replacement for the kit wheel. These are well moulded on small pour blocks and should enhance the look of your kit. The set also inclused a set of wheel masks to help paint the wheels correctly Conclusion Wheels can be one area which let a kit down, in a lot of cases these resin replacements can make a difference, this is helped by the masks to paint them. Recomended. Review samples courtesy of
Hi This is my recently completed Kitty Hawk JAS 39C Gripen. Much can (and has) been said about this kit and it certainly has it's fair share of faults, specially if you want to make a Swedish example (as you don't get any useful Swedish markings for a JAS 39C, only a JAS 39A test airframe). The biggest fault (except the decals) i think is that you don't get any kind of intake trunking, so there is just two big holes into the model. So I scratch built full length intakes to the engine. The fit of my kit was generally rather good, the only major use of filler was required around the nose to fuselage mating area. But I have seen examples of this kit where the fuselage halves have been heavily warped. I wanted to make an aircraft that took part in the 2011 Libyan campaign (FL01), codename operation Karakal operating from the Italian base Sigonella. And as such I needed to arm my kit accordingly. But you don't get any of the required weaponry in the kit, so the AM to the rescue. The load out consist of the following: Maestro Models: SPK39 recce pod and IRIS-T (RB 98) missiles Eduard Brassin: AIM-120B Amraam (RB 99) MODEL-CZ: Fuel tanks Dr.Pepper Resin: AN/AAQ-28 LDP Litening Pod It also requires that a full set of countermeasures is loaded as well. The fuselage mounted chaff/flare dispensers (BOP/C) come from A.M.U.R.REAVER (Modern USAF Chaff/Flare Dispensers set) The dispensers (BOP/B) in the NATO pylons and the MML launchers with BOL where scratch built and cast in resin. I also threw a lot of additional resin and what not into this kit. Aires cockpit, wheel wells and exhaust Eduard pe detail set CMK corrected wing racks Master pitot tubes SAC landing gears The decals was a mix of the kit decals (stencils) and Two Bobs gripen decals. Painted with Lifecolor FS36373 and Modelmaster FS36173. Best regards Johan
