Dear fellow modellers, I haven't logged in to the forum for ages and I have probably missed a ton of great build threads ... I had a lot of work (which is good as I'm self employed) and a major home improvement project needed my attention. And then I had some health issues. Nothing serious, but very annoying with lots of trips to physicians. So I had to put modelling on the backburner. However, the Viggen is NOT dead ;-). However, I worked on a detailed drawing of an FB-111A, including many cross sections, that you guys can download once it's finished. Here is a teaser: There are still some questions that need to be answered. Here is one: The FB-111A used three different pylons: the inboard SRAM pivot pylon, a pivot tank pylon and fixed tank pylon on the outboard stations. From the documentation and from the very limited photographic evidendence I have, it seems that neither the pivot tank pylon nor the fixed tank pylon had sway braces. That seems a bit unusual. Can anyone confirm or disprove this? Thanks for your help Rainer
