Terrific work on that camo Rod, certainly sets the bar high for my Flanker ;) :clap:

Looking forward to seeing her with the final touches added :)

Hi Rod
A quick search found this pic which showed the weapon fit. The other wing had the same weapon on the outer as this side but the chin pylon had a sidewinder in green hope that helps.

I just noticed the radome colour, its a mix of matt and gloss, I never recalled seeing that before.

Thanks for the shot Ian... Those weapons are the ones I had ordered. Since the postal strike here delayed mail. I have to add my kit mostly done. I'll finish the kit off when I get back home from the trip to the UK for RIAT near the end of July. The package should be in by then. So I call this one a "donesh"... Out of the competition for the prizes.. but still in the group build. It was a blast to take a crack for the first time at such a paint job. Maybe when I arrive in the UK next week. I'll go buy the other Viggen if it is still there to try again.
Thanks for the comments everyone. Just the one shot.. the rest are in the compleated RIAT 40th build.

Looks stunning. Love when you've masked a really difficult pattern and when the time comes and the tape is peeled back it's always a great feeling when it looks as good as yours does!
