The Viggen was such fun - I'm rejoining you with this J-21A.

An aircraft that I know nothing about, so there's not likely to be much beyond model-making here.

Anyway here is the box

and the parts.

This kit was an end of GB raffle prize from a few years ago - many thanks.

Tim I made some of these many years ago and I seem to remember it as a good kit. Pleased to see you going for a second aircraft in the GB. I really need to get on with my 105, but recovering my partner's son from a flooded road put paid to those plans tonight.

I just wikied this Viking :viking: defender. Indigenous Swedish design described as very efficient.

Powered with a DB605B similar the a Bf109 (I thought it might be a Merlin).

The type was innovative with a tricycle undercarriage, heavy forward-firing armament :mg:, and twin-boom pusher layout. Unsurprisingly it had an ejection seat :giles: - to escape that rear mount propellor.

Undoubtedly WWII technology, it was developed from 1943, actually entering service in Dec 1945.

Retired in 1954.

Anyway I painted mine yesterday

and applied decals on this morning:

I've fitted the canopy tonight.

Could I ask what type of green paint you went for - I was due to do one of these however the inconvenience of work has meant I was unable to contribute.

Your J21 looks great (to my untrained eye)

I did wonder about trying to make a set of ladders and use a spare pilot to recreate the photos as shown on the IPMS Stockholm website!!!
