USAF Wild Weasel Saab Viggen: Far Model


Recommended Posts

This has been my “Secret project” for the past two years. She started life as Special Hobby 1/48 scale Saab AJ37 Viggen and then I added a bunch custom parts.

Whoa!  Epic Concept!  👍

 

I can't take credit for the idea. My inspiration was from this profile  here https://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php?topic=29685.msg494915#msg494915

That is pretty sick! 
I've always had some ideas of the Viggen in F-111-ish markings and mission. PaveTac and GBUs. Your idea and execution is outstanding.

Ok, it looks weird. What's more it looks weirdly right. Nice work. Hope You didn't get too crazy when doing stencils.

Thanks Thadeus. Her stencils was a daunting task to start. But I broke it up into more manageable section, like front of nose, rear of fuselage, top of wings... And took about a week to complete.

Wow great idea and execution. All the surface details and stencils add so much to the finish. What a nice finish. 

 

Thanks Janissary. It was a struggle to find the right balance of details, decals, paint.... and go overboard. She's busy but I feel it's the right amount. 

 

Thanks again everyone,

Steven
