'Ghost' DRAKEN (Airfix 1/72)

Recommended Posts

Can't remember where I first saw this c. 1990 commemorative Swedish F10 Wing scheme -- online profile, magazine or Hasegawa kit box art -- but once I saw it, I knew it was the only choice for the old Airfix 1/72 kit lurking in the stash. Decals are home-made except for numbers and roundels from old Flying Colors sheets. Paints are Tamiya acrylic mixes. The red tail color and the 'Ghost' badge are insignia of the wing's No. 1 Squadron.

Now thats a good looking Draken ! :worthy:... The darker squares on the wings ? Are they supposed to be fresh paint over previous numbers or markings ?

That was my understanding. A discussion on another forum thought it had been ID panels in the form of yellow rectangles or a checkerboard pattern. [IIRC I actually saw the effect on another model online...and quite shamelessly copied it! :D]

Really excellent J 35 Draken of 1st squadron, F 10 Wing at Ängelholm.

 

The 1st squadron ghost emblem has a history back to 1942, when flight lieutenant Gunnar Asklin, acting commander of 1st sq, decided that a ghost would be a suitable symbol for the squadron.

 

Nice job!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim
