Default Pimp my Saab Gripen ... the finals

Nothing big, but perhaps you remember my previous thread about the modifications i've made at my Altaya Saab Gripen. If not, just take a look HERE (KLICK ME) to see, how it looked right out of the box

The plane itself was already finished a while ago (and showed in another Thread ) but i left off the weaponload as i was undecided how to replace the anti-ship missiles and how to give the Gripen another realistic load.

But meanwhile, i found a manufacturer that offers resin droptanks for the Gripen ... so there was no question, i had to buy them.

So here we go ... Gripen with new droptanks, repainted AGM Maverick Missiles and some AIM-9 Sidewinders i had as spareparts from old plastic model kits.





I hope you enjoyed ... and i swear, it will be the last thread about my Gripen

Nice! I like the look of Delta wing fighters and the Gripen is no exception!

Thank you, guys

That green (and still transparent) HUD is easy to do. You just need a piece of transparent plastic and some water based glass paint that you can buy at your hobby shop (not that window colors which get like rubber when dried!).

I'm using colors called DEKA Cristal, but there are transparent colors available from Tamiya, Model Color or Revell, too.
