  1. TT...Super-duper Viggen...and you hit a home-run with your camo job. Special all the way around.

  2. Gorgeous Viggen, Tzigkounakis!
    Excellent job on the build and the camo paint.

  3. Another of your truly amazing models, φίλε Τάσο!
    This is a spectacular camo, very difficult to replicate, and you did an fantastic job on it!
    The fact that you tackled the challenging SH kit so well, adds even more to this superb result!

  4. Excellent work! That’s a plane and scheme that I’ve always wanted but never had the courage to attempt.

  5. Good morning Viggen!, outstanding presentation. I have the 2 seat version, in the Special Hobby box. That is one challenging paint scheme and you did it with perfection. Nice to see a load out as well. This is one of the best results I have seen on one of the most iconic Swedish planes that ever operated over Scandinavian skies. Well done and thanks for sharing a remarkable build.

  6. You clearly showed the beauty of this aircraft, Tzigkounakis
    Your build is fantastic, like the camouflage as well.
    How did you do the masking to get that scheme?

    • Thank you very much my friend first I paid The black and brown areas then I mask them and after that I paid the light green and when I find it I paid at last the dark green areas. You need about a week for all those masking good luck

  7. As was said in a movie “.. you’re a better man than I am, Gunga Din”. That is a great job on the splinter camouflage

  8. Your excellent model makes me want to continue building mine which is sitting in a box collecting dust then I remember the headaches I had and don't.

  9. Any modeler who can hang in there to get that splinter camo as superbly as you have, TT, has definitely got my respect. That's one of the hardest projects in modeling I can think of, and you have a really wonderful result here.

  10. That's really something else, definitely liked.

    Superb job ?

  12. Much, much better than my. Grrrrrrrr 🙂

  13. Very nice indeed. Excellent camo.

  14. A real beauty. The Viggen in the splinter scheme is one of my favorite aircraft! Even though I have a mask set (for 1/72), I'm still intimidated to tackle it!

  15. I think this scheme is the most difficult in the world. Very good paint and details.

  16. Excellent job on the build and the camo paint, a friendly advice though. The AJ37 could not carry Sidewinders on the outer pylons. Late upgrades like the AJSF or AJSH could. If your model is a AJSH37 its ok.
