Draken is one of my favorite jets; is fun to watch one coming together.

Details... details... + poll!

Late last night i started the wing details at the same time as assembly of the 1st engine and its wing. This was due to me being in a different room and not having access to my plastic card i use to laminate formers to cardboard. It looks like i will finish the model soon so heres a poll for the next model

Next model - Poll

Sorry for such a low quality photo if its any larger it doesnt upload and i haven't figured out the adding photos via url yet

Most likely the next post will be the completed model without landing gear, I dont want to risk damaging the model currently as it dries (the wing seems to be struggling to stay attached) but why no landing gear? Well I simply do not have the skill to build such small parts with the 2ply paper WMV used however if i make it 1ply paper the gear wont be strong enough to hold the model. One day i will attach the landing gear just not today. Now i must decide my next model, probably between a gripen or the super etendard

I quite enjoyed the build, and it makes me wish we here in the USA had a cheaper way of purchasing pre printed kits from online stores, thank you to user Modelperry for the model

Model is finished, with gear

After months the Wilhelmshaven Saab Draken is complete, not sure which model is coming next but i wont do another large build for a little while. And if i do I'll (probably) be choosing between the super etendard and gripen.

Thank you to everyone who watched me complete the model.
