    Heller's Viggen which is believed to be the most accurate 1/72nd replica of this marvellous aircraft.

    ahh.. one of the Swedish aircrafts that I've seen every time I was at the airport. And I might say that you did a splendid job on the cammo!

    A great rendition of a beautiful aircraft, really well done. That is not an easy scheme to reproduce. Brilliant job.

    One question, on the right side of the aircraft right at the middle of the wings there I'm missing some black/brown in that big patch of green in the cammo.

    It might be me, but looks a bit odd!

    Thanks for all the replies!! Here's a picture of the real aircraft:

    My replicated scheme is not perfect, but I tried to keep as close as possible by scaling up the Heller instructions and cutting masking tape on it. Here's a scanned photo of it.

    Very very nice work - and considering the masking and retouching it must have been quite a daunting task. Just love your clean work - I tend to identify with modellers who like me do not go to the other side with the weathering...

    Do you visit the club at all? If not, you're missing out on some fun and most of all, very good advice. Keep posting.

    It's close to perfect! And you have done a helluva job on it!
