1/72 - Saab 37 Viggen by Special Hobby

Recommended Posts

Does look a bit off from those comparison pics but I suppose there's bound to be a few minor faults with any model. It's when they get it really wrong (KH Mig 25 and Trumpy Vampire) that it's a real pain. That said there shouldn't be any excuse to not get the overall shape spot on these days.

Like the 1/48 Viggen, this one will be a co-operation with Tarangus, which means that there will be at least two different versions released (most likely JA and AJ 37). The first ones will be released in 2017, however I don't know which version that will be the first. (Source: I have been in contact with Tarangus).

Any updates on the 1/72 Viggen?

Not going to be released in 2017 is what they (Special Hobby) told me.

Yeah they told me on Facebook it was going to be "a long journey for the existence of the 1/72 scale kit of the Viggen " If it's a good kit the wait will be worth it😃

Finally a new Viggen in my preferred scale!

Whoo boy! A Viggen in "THE" scale? Next to Ann-Margaret, the best-built Swede ever!  The masking set for the 'splinter' scheme will be expensive, but required, methinks!

Be still, my beating heart! I'm with you, Giorgio!

This is great news!

I wonder if the'll ignore the plug for Jaktviggen or not?

Or maybe the'll solve it somehow...

 

@charlie_c67 We do already have a good Draken: The Hasegawa kit! Reboxed by Revell at least once...

Fixed canards with separate "flaps", a RAT, corrected JA(/Sk)-fin (?), those missing supports by the intake (missing in the 48th one, the bottom ones) - great! And all variants in one boxing? (But yeah, the engine lenghtening for the JA like Christer says?)

Wheel wells might make sense and look smart to mould that way but will make it harder to replace with resin AM-ones..?

 

Looking good but I´ll stay with the big sister.. ;)

It looks like it will have "the plug" included when looking a little more in detail on the sprues.

So that's that little problem solved, great!

 

@Paramedic, in 1/72 you can easily build a whole squadron for the amount of money you're pouring into one 1/48 Viggen...
