GRIPEN

Recommended Posts

Hi! If i'm going to build a Czech/Swedish/Hungarian Gripen, what FS would be correct or most appropriate to use for the darker shade on the upper part of the plane? I would appreciate it if you could also provide me with the brand/s that carry that particular FS. Thanks in advance!

+1 on Dark Ghost Gray. Most hobby paint brands (except Tamiya) carry this colour in their range. My favourite is Gunze Aqueous Hobby.

Agama make the Gripen colors (Agama is the maker of Xtracrylix for Hannants). Can be ordered online from Jadar Hobby in Poland (good service).

Upper surfaces FS 36173 = Agama C37

Lower surfaces FS 36373 = Agama C38

LifeColor also have both colors

FS 36173 = LC-UA046

FS 36373 = LC-UA036

Hungarian NATO MiG-29s painted are RAL 7000 / RAL 7040 and more lighter than Gripens!

The only Gripens that are painted differently are the South African ones which have FS36118 on the topsides. All others Swedish, Czech, Hungarian and Thai are the same.

Edit: Sorry just noticed that the above post is referring to MIG 29's?
