Good-lookin’ build…..a welcome change of pace from the [usual] splinter pattern camo paint job as seen on many versions – and a whole lot easier, I’ll bet. 🙂

An absolute STUNNING Viggen. Well done!!!

Well done, I have the Esci kit with some of the upgrades, but I have been looking into getting the Tarangus kit or this boxing of the kit, as I have heard it is much more up to date. Either way a great build, thanks for sharing
Yes the Tarangus /Special Hobby’ might be exspensive but well worth it. The fit is really great . Plus there is allot of resin out there for it. You might try ebay for one or a model show 🙂

Nice clean build of a worn and dirty aircraft. Planning to add some missiles?
Not on this kit maybe on another one some day 🙂

Great job on this, Brian. One thing: category Uncategorized? – looks like a plane to me 😜
Thanks 🙂 I sent you a friend request on FB 🙂

Nice work, Brian!

Fantastic looking model, Brian, I really like what you’ve done, but a bit more info about the build and painting wouldn’t go amiss, e.g. which Tamiya paints did you use? Did you use the MIG wash to darken the panel lines? etc, but thanks again for sharing this with us, definitely in line for a prize this month in my opinion.
I used Tamiya XF-19 for top color and XF-19 for bottom color . then added a little white to both for fadding. The Mig was was for the weathered streaky looking and used look .

Beautiful! I’ve been grappling with whether to do my first Viggen in splinter (a bit daunting – especially at 1/72) or grey scheme. Now that I’ve seen how well the grey scheme can look, I think I’ll do that first! Looks like a well-used bird. Excellent results with fading and weathering.

Great build and great subject also! Incidentally I just bought a Heller and an old Matchbox Viggen in 1:72 – as I always liked the futuristic look of this bird (and the earlier Saab 35 also – I heard that Eduard will make aspecial edition 1:48 Draken in the near future – just a hint 😉 ).

Something really different Brian. Looks great: nice detail & paint & it seems like Tarangus have produced a good kit as well. Thanks for sharing.

Stunning build, expertly painted! I remember building one of these when I was a kid…. Looked nothing like that mind!
