Was off yesterday while waiting for the paint to dry on Sea King made some progress on the three Gripens. Had a bit of accident as my glue bottle spilled and the back halves of one of the models got covered in glue. I carefully lifted them away and the did not touch them for a few hours. Got away pretty lucky on some washed out panel lines and some crispness in some of the parts. Have included a pic but may not be able to see much.

Whoooa Mate! That's a lot of started models :) Your Grippens are looking good!

I sometimes have the same thing, when I start 4 models simultaneusly I get the urge to start at least 4 more... The only problem is if these are the same models - You can end up making the same mistake 4 times... or 8 ;)

Calling these three done. The Model-cz decals went on pretty good just had to score them around edges first as they are printed on white decal paper. The black did chip a little so had to touch up a few spots. Yellow tanks are hand painted took a little artistic licence as could only find a few shots of the real tanks
