    Username: VikingBerserker
    First Name: David
    Category: 2 – Intermediate
    Scale: 1/48
    Manufacturer: ESCI
    Model Type: Saab Ja 37 Jaktviggen of the F 13 Norrköping
    Additions: Scratch built some incomplete pieces (landing gear) and Intake covers from "Two Mikes Resin Accessories"

    This build I thoroughly enjoyed as I've always wanted to do the Infamous Splinter Camouflage on the Viggen. I'd like to thank Terry who was kind enough to share some of his pics of the Viggen with me as well as Jan for the color technical advice - both which were invaluable.

    I'd also need to send a special thanks to Tamiya and 3M for their tape and Guinness for their beer :D

    My apologies for the pics - I think I need a new camera
