My contribution to the Edmonton IPMS Group build. The other 5 included Hungarian (Vic S), Italian (Chris A), Canadian (Gary F), Japanese (Brent F), and Finnish (Jim C).

For a Tamiya kit, this one fought back a lot harder than I expected. Mostly my own haste to get it done in time for the Nanton show. There was a $100 DNF penalty fine levied against anyone who didn't have theirs completed in time.






And a couple before shots

Awesome - but don't you think a normal Swedish mid century dark green/blue grey scheme would have been more appropiate in that era ?

Only joking, looking very tasty, very good masking exercise - love the great weathering on this bird - and in my imagination I can already see a RB-05 missile somewhere under it

What is DNF ?

I love this what-if Do-335, what a striking camo paint work, like the one seen on the Swedish Viggen, great work on this model. I really love it.
