In progress: Italeri JAS-39 Gripen Pt.1

In Progress: Not quite an "In Progess" feature as most of this build is nearly complete. Italeri's JAS-39 Gripen was built mostly out of the box with the exception of the scratch built FOD covers & RBF tags, a change of armaments from the spares box and if I can't source some aftermarket decals, I'll use the Czech Air Force decals supplied .
