Hello,

 

Beside SF, "What if" is my favourite genre of modelling so I couldn't resist the urge to join this GB :)

Few years ago there was a tender for multirole fighter in Poland, also known as a "Tender of Century". There was three competitors: Mirage 2000, F-16C Blk. 52+ and JAS-39. F-16 won, although there were a lot of controversy around this choice. I really hoped that Gripen will win and...to be honest...I still think that it could be a better solution for Polish Air Force.

 

In february, this year, I bought a Revell 1/32 JAS-39 which is old model. While buying it I was sure that I can make it in only one type of markings- polish! :)

I bought resin seat replacement and Techmod F-16 decal set- this one:

I'll probably adapt second scheme for my Gripen...or rather Griffon :)

I did a 3 rd Tactical Squadron Mig-21 MF with a Raven on the tail a few years back. I thought of using it

 

on a F-16.  The MiG was painted very similar to a US F-16 with a blue-gray bottom.

 

Looking forward to seeing this

Thanks MARU. Built OOB

Wanted something Different

Liked the F-16 paint job

The RAVEN on the tail

Squadron Logo on the front fuselage

Numbers I could make stencils' for

 Is a Good OOB and it hits at the shows

Hello,

 

Time for surprises...

After I've received resin seats for Griffon, I was delighted...A LOT OF DETAILS, GREAT CASTING WOW!

 

Then I wanted to put it into cockpit tub imediatelly...well...just look...

Revell seat is significantly smaller than Paragon Design one...

...which leads to this...There is no chance to fit resin seat into cockpit tub...without cutting

Also, new decal set had came. Without surprises :)

It is a little HUGE for the pit, but the kit seat looks pretty good, and some dress-up parts would make it Great.

 

Keeping an eye on this one B)

Well, sanding is almost finished. Only on the radome additional putty was needed.
