About the Viggen, I used "Scotch Magic tape", which is less sticky, but enables you to see through, every time covering the whole surface.
You also need a large camo diagram display : I had mine on an "old" World Power Encyclopedia.
No need to be frightened. Just some patience is needed. And a good sight as you get tired, finally mixing colors at the end, in the cut out process.

Thanks for the compliments, guys!
More side by side views so you can judge of the size of big and small ones compared to a huge one :
(Please widen you screen or shink it a bit for a side by side view)
Then you can compare wth the Mirage IIIB you showed us in your link :

And off topic, sorry, I just love the A380... ... extremely roomy cabin (especially the shoulder room, I'm 1m91 tall and rugbyman cut) ...
You are comparing two different things. Roomy cabin has nothing to do with shoulder room.
Remember the B-777 which is no more than a "super DC-10/MD-11" with a similar fuselage width (narrower than a B-747) and originally fitted with 9 seats abreast. (The cockpit space is by far roomier than in a B-747).
Later, Airlines publicized its roomy interior volume, and new seats with more leg space (thinner seat back in fact). Room space above is like the huge space below the windsceen in a car. Can you fit in it ? Still, they say your car is "roomy" ! )
While that, they introduced a 10 abreast configuration leaving passengers with less shoulder space (arm rests reduced to a symbolic plate) and cabin crews with less trolley space in the aisles. (I challenge you to cross a meal trolley during a meal service).
So, they managed to fit (stuff might be more appropriate) as many passengers on a unique deck 777-300 as on the 747-400. Find the error.
Leaving an overcrowded B-777-300 in 45s : that is THE challenge.
Anyway, I agree with you about the A380 : it is very quiet and comfortable.
