Her I will put pictures of my newest project, it is Viper nr. 286. from when it was deployed in italy during the bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999. It will be armed with 4xAIM-120 and 2xAIM-9, It will also have an ALQ-131 on the centerline. I will use VINGTOR decals for this build, and pictures will be put in every night during the holidays. ( I hope) I hope you will comment on it as it progresses!

Here you can see the tail of #286 as it looks today, mark the new, "Generic Norwegian" tail marking and the MLU badge.

Here comes the first few pictures, I have spent an hour buliding and painting the ejection seat, adding seatbelts made from foil. I also had to have a go at the exhaust, as I wanted to see if I could get the bluish tint good on the inner ring....

I have been working hard at my Viper since last posting, but have not taken many pictures as it was basically just boring bits like undercarriage etc. But now it is standing on its own, it still nedds to be tidied up a bit, and will of course have decals on, but I have finished the weapons and the tail, will have pictures of them tomorrow! I never put the tail on before I am finished with the decals, is so much more easy when you can lay the viper on its back! This time I have laid the panel lines in dark grey, to try to make them visible, but not too dominating... tell me what you think?
