I agree with the compliments on the paintwork.  It is superb, and I appreciate your answer above too.  The zinc chromate you refer to is the yellow shade, correct?  And it is post-sprayed to blend the different camo colors?   Your technique produces very realistic results Aigore!   :thumbsup:


Yes, it is a yellow with a green tint used for priming, think it's actually a mix of yellow and black in real life :)

A really nicely built and finished Jan - Love it. I like you advice about Chromate Yellow - I will look at that myself in the future. Love the Viggen and we miss it at airshows here in the UK. I would love a Viggen in my collection - how was the Special Hobby kit to build?


If I build one I will probably finish mine in a grey scheme - way less masking!







Thanks Malcolm :D

remember it's zinc chromate....not chromatic yellow :P


the splinter isn't that bad with the ready cut masks :)

Easily one of the best Viggens I've seen - it's a beautiful aircraft and you've really done it justice here - beautiful paint and weathering - did you have many issues with the kit? I've heard mixed reports. 

Thanks :D

Ah well, it is not a kit that falls together by itself and even if there is a correction sprue for the most glaring faults it still has issues. Be prepared to use putty and sandings and keep an eye on the refs!

I sometimes wonder how a Tamiya take on Viggen in 1/48th scale would have looked.......deeeeeeeeep sigh
