That IS looking good!

Is there any connection in that both you and the aircraft's designer are called Ed?  ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

Love it! Years ago I started a similar project but with a massive engine and Eurofighter wings...this looks so much better. Bravo Ed!
I find it very hard to believe Academy would make a mistake like that he said sarcastically...

I was imagining more Viggen-ish delta canards. :blink:

Here's how it looked as of last night. Due to earlier issues, I don't have time for the original camo I had in mind, so I kept it simple and just painted it Gunship Gray. I'm putting the decals on now and hope to add the finishing details tomorrow afternoon.

Nice one Ed!  :thumbsup: :bow:

As soon as I saw the underside pic I thought 'Gripen', just goes to show how relatively small changes can make an aircraft look TOTALLY different.
