Recommended Posts

Joining you with this recent acquisition from IPMS Avon show.  Cost £7.

To build this 2 seat option, which happens to be Danish.

Post-dated photo of parts, earlier this morning.  Raised panel detail, little interior - I suspect this Draken kit has been overtaken in quality.

Originally released in 1977, and last seen in 2000.

Do what you gotta do.  Would've been nice if there was a panel set out there for these like the Quinta jobs.  I ended up springing for an Aires resin pit for single seater...I'm hoping I don't regret it.  :D

gosh that was a bargain!! Welcome along with a Draken....one of many I expect we'll see. Though last time the Viggen one by numbers, I wonder if it will this time?

 

Good to see you're off to a good start. 

 

Good luck with the build.

Outer wings suffered shrinkage, I'm trying to fix that with filler and Tippex.

Draken trainers - well the Danish ones, only had the port cannon, so I'm filling the stbd one.

Tim's balance rig.  spues superglued in place alongside the locations for U/C legs.

Nosecone filled with finely chopped pieces of lead - borderline balance.

A rolled up piece of lead into that nose orifice, under the coaming sealed the deal.

wow you are making quick work of her.

 

Shame about tall those sink makes but from the look of that top coat you sorted them out nicely, great finish to the paint! :thumbsup:

well done Tim, on a nice quick build and a nice looking model, she looks great.  :thumbsup:

 

You're right that clear coat changed the colour perfectly.

 

Thanks for joining us here, I hope you enjoyed the build... and will we see another one?

Thanks Rich,- but that wraps up my participation for this GB.

I have no other eligible kits remaining in my stash.
