Here are some photo's of my recently completed Italeri JAS 39 Gripen from the Czech Air Force in 1/48 scale.
Italeri's JAS-39 Gripen was built mostly out of the box with the exception of the scratch built FOD covers & RBF tags and a change of armaments from the spares box. The FOD covers & RBF tags were made from yellow and red electrical tape which saved a bit of time on painting.

The kit itself was painted using Gunze Sangyo acrylic paints with a light wash of a highly diluted mix acrylic gouache
(Paynes Grey) to highlight the panel lines. As usual, the kit was sealed with Testors
I had apprehensions about using the kit decals as I was told that they were a bit thick, but none the less I used them. Overall they weren’t that bad.
