Here is the start of a build log for the recent and most welcome release of the SAAB JA 37 Viggen from Tarangus models. I did a inbox review of the kit and you can find it here if you are interested.
I am already considering which paint scheme to paint this kit. I really fancy the four colour upper camouflage scheme, but I do like the two tone grey scheme. The grey Viggens seem particularly heavily weathered which I find appealing.

I have started with fitting the additional instrumentation that goes onto the inside wall of the cockpit. Hopefully the images are clear enough for you to see the fine raised detail. One thing that is immediately apparent is how soft the plastic is. So you need to take great care separating the parts from the sprues. I would suggest using snips rather than using a blade. The holes you can see along the fuselage just behind where the air intake fits is for the fitting of the canards.
I have also glued in place the one piece front under carriage bay.

To be continued…….
