So I got very lucky with a pair of Italeri Gripen purchases at a modelling contest for a steal, not a hot topic for the locals.
One purchase came from a vendor who knew about our mothballed Gripens.
To be honest, the Gripen was not on my radar at all. Once I got home, it twigged that the single seater I had was an "A" and not a "C".
So, in modelling terms, what is the difference between the "A" and "C"?
I noticed that some of the detail looks wanting, like the exhaust. I'm sure I will be hunting for 3 bang seats as that is usually a good upgrade in appearance, and does not suck on one's wallet.
What weapons or anything else did the SAAF hang from the aircraft?
Was there any other colour scheme than the usual of the Gripen family?
Looking forward to some input and ideas.
