A long time ago, in a town… well, a few kilometres from where I live now, I decided that I wanted to build a 1/72 Millennium Falcon. Back then, the Fine Molds kit was the only option, so when I saw that it was on a 30% off sale at HLJ, I snapped it up. I bought the Tamiya 1/32 Mustang at the same time, and given that I built that many moons ago indeed, I really did sit on this one for a long time.
My Viggen was judged the winner of the Baltics group build over on Cold War Model Making and Photos. I’ve never had a model win something before, so it’s a little bit of a big deal. Thanks to everyone who provided info, advice, and support on this build, especially the Vikings who wouldn’t let me put a foot wrong.
After the Corsair, I wanted a straightforward, not too involved build to end the year. I was really enjoying 1/32 props, and was looking for a low parts count and something that would fit well. Hasegawa’s Kurfurst fit the bill on that point. Overall though, this was a “were they even trying?”.
