Gallery Article by Phil De Keyser on Apr 20 2012



Hello everybody, this is the next project that I have made, itís the little Saab JAS Gripen from Italeri on a 1/72 scale, itís build straight from the box, the intake covers are made from Tamiya tape, I must say that this little one have some nice details, the only minus is the cockpit, these is a little bit to basic but for the professionals are there several aftermarket setís to become,

Iíve used the old Humbrol colors, and finished it with a wash en pastel powder to give it a used look, put it on a  little display with a nice nameplate and its finished.

So you can see that youíve get a nice result with a little and cheep kit, Iím satisfied with the result and will build a second one on 1/72 scale.
