USAF Wild Weasel Saab Viggen: Far Model
« on: May 01, 2021, 08:04:12 AM »
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.




To see more of her along with a list of things I did to her, look here

Me too ... a beautiful build! Interesting too to see the image on your site showing the size comparison with the F-5  :smiley:

The Viggen has so much non-Swedish AF potential.

Excellent work!  :smiley:
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Outstanding.  Makes me imagine even a subtler whiff of a 'standard' Svenska flygvapnet SK 37E loaded with AGM88 HARM etc

That looks absolutely amazing. The Standard ARM is underused on models IMO, and it just adds to the hulking look of the Viggen. That shark-mouth and all the stencils and decalling just make it look like it means business, and that camo is just *chef kiss* Fantastic work as always.
