AWSOME!!!!!! :thumbsup: I have always loved the Area 88 jets!

The paintjob is most effective with the chipping on the fuselage and the faded colors. It doesn't look like an anime subject at all. Instead it looks real! Nice job!

Were the decals custom printed, or did somebody in Japan do them? Reason I ask is I have wanted to do Shin's Crusader and F-20 for some time in 1/48. I have the ability to make my own markings, but if somebody has already done them, it would make my job easier.

Fanastic! Great work and The Draken sure looks good in a desert scheme as well :woot.gif:

Thanx for sharing!

Cheers!

That is very beautiful model. It has the beat-up quality you would expect from a mercenary jet in the desert while still looking perfectly crafted.

Area 88 was the first manga translated and published in America. But for some reason they just stopped before they even got half way. I'm still upset about it even though it was 15 years ago.

I especially like the chipping. It looks absolutely stunning.

This desert scheme fits the Draken like a glove, and your weathering is bang on. Well done! <_<

Usually I really don't like "what'ifs", but your Draken turned out really cool!!

Very well done on that camo, she looks great! :thumbsup::whistle:

SUPERB...I like the way you have sporadic scattered chipping worked into the Jet...

Nice little touches like that make it look real..

Absolutely stunning, truly, one of the most detailed and realistic paintjobs and weathering done on a model!

Painstakingly brilliant.

and yes, that pit and IP's are :cheers:

How long did the whole shebang take you to do approx- a few months?
