S35 Draken #59 from F11 - Hasegawa 1/48

Recommended Posts

Hi.  :D 


It's high time to start working on the Draken so I can finish it within the deadline.

The first rudder has been cut. 
But I must admit that I really don't like the feeling of putting the knife to a prefectly nice Hasegawa kit.

Now that makes sence. The Danish nose does look quick flat from the sides, so perhaps I do have the Swedish recce nose. I'll have to take a second look and check some more photos. Nice start by the way Bosse.

Cheers.. Dave

Maestro also has a Swedish nose.

Maestro has a Swedish nose as well but I think it looks like the Heller nose.  To me I think that the Heller nose look more like the Swedish one while others say Danish.

Heller used the top half of the fighter nose so it is wrong. It should not have a smooth curve here is a distinct kink in it. That is missing on both Heller and Maestro noses.

Pavla made a S 35E set but that nose is even worse.

 

Enough about that. I am looking forward seeing this build unfold.

Thanks Col. :D

I've cut the rest of them yesterday and plan to do some more work on it when I get home from work later today.

Hopefully I'll have it glued up by Sunday.

Hi. 

My Draken build is slowly progressing and during the weekend I cut of the outer rudders.

Then I glued the outer wings together.

And last week my youngest son Axel turned 16 and this weekend he got a new bike as a birhtday present
The bike is aptly named......

Axel was rather pleased and thought it was OK to turn 16.

Thanks Werner. :D 

Fast indeed, which is kind of odd, because I don't seem to get any older.  :rofl:

Hi and Thanks Col. :D 
And Happy Birthday to you. :cake:


I did some work on the Draken yesterday. 
And now the fuselage halves are glued together.

I still have some more PE to add in and around the cockpit, but I think I can do it fine from outside the cockpit.

Hi, and thanks Col. :D 

Some more progress have been made on the Draken. 
I've glued the camera covers in the wingroot in place, and some other small bits
49559205893_0db9b97720_k.jpg210 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr
I've also got the intake fixed, and the tailcone is glued together. 
So it's running along nicely and perhaps I can put some primer on it during the weekend.

Mines a bit older, just done 4 years in the army (is a mechanical fitted on choppers), has just told me he's applying for his transfer and commission in the air force, wants to go backseat in the F/A-18G Growlers!

WOW :analintruder: 

A Growler back seater. 

Just the thought of getting paid to do that is more than envious.   :D 

Axel had an idea of becoming a Blackhawk driver here in Sweden, but then he tried the Army life a bit and came to the conclusion that it wasn't for him. 

And your right, he loves his new bike.

yeah mine originally joined just as a grunt but luckily he managed to move into army aviation (first ARH-1 Tiger chopper, now drones) where he's excelled.

 

Maybe you son should go air force (I'm ex), they're usually a lot more laid back! :D

I think he now is planing to become an English teacher. 

And since his older brother is studying to become a teacher in German and English I think that's a great career choice. 

Good teacher are always needed.

Hi :D 


I've continued to work on the Draken.
Let get the flare packs in place.

Maestro's instructions isn't that clear, but with the help of my own and online pictures I think this is the correct way.7

And during Saturday I got the fin and wings on.

To me it seems like the Swedish and Austrian versions are different. 

The swedish flare dispenser are longer, as my pictures from F11 Skavsta shows.

Hi.  :D 

I've filled the seams on my Hunter with liquid sprue. 
So it'll have to rest some days before I can continue. 

 

But don't worry, I'll work on the Draken instead. 
Yesterday I glued the camera nose on to the fuselage.

And I put some small PE parts to the fuselage.

I think I'll clean up and mount the rudders this evening.

Hi Guys. :D 

I managed to clean up two out of four rudders last evening. 
49691382941_f01b509d3f_k.jpg298 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr
I'll do the last two this evening, and then glue them all in place.

Good to see this one moving forward Bosse. In fact I think we are at similar points with our Austrian Draken projects :)
