Wow! Impressive! And the name Drakkar suits her really well...  :lol: :rolleyes:

Can't wait to see it finished now... Planning to place it on fake water afterwards? That would be the top!

Ok... excepting the base.. it is done !!

I give you the SAAB Sea Drakken or Drakkar..

I settled on Norwegian markings as it is the sort of aircraft you could hide amongst the fjords and lakes and operate.

The camo job is something I made up, loosely based on something I have seen elsewhere, but cannot quite pin it down.







And there it is my entry for the GB.

Stunning conversion, beautiful camo but (you knew there would be a but, didn't you) the markings are backwards.  Fat end of the emblem is to the front and pointed end towards the rear.  Man I hate to nitpick a beautiful model.  Maybe, an alternate universe?

That looks excellent, and to be honest, I had my doubts about it at first: nice one!  :thumbsup:
