  1. A 1/48th Saab 105/Sk.60! More infos here: http://www.ipmsstock...=1172&hilit=105 announced by a new US model company, Pilot Replicas: http://www.pilot-replicas.com Source: http://www.cybermode..._replicas.shtml This is the third reported Mirage IIIE/5 family and derivatives project in 1/48th after those already in quick progress from High Planes/PJ Production and MustHave. And don't forget the new tool Kfir from a Chinese undetermined source announced on ARC forum: http://s362974870.on...howtopic=253907 To be followed. V.P.
  2. SF-37E Viggen "Swedish Eyes" (SH72390) 1:72 Special Hobby The Viggen is a rugged fighter/interceptor that was designed to fulfil a need during the deep Cold War to defend Swedish airspace in the event of an incursion by the Soviet Bloc, and to continue the fight from hidden bases near roadways, which the aircraft could use as makeshift landing strips. It was to replace both the Lansen and Draken, and did so extremely well, endearing itself to aviation enthusiasts as it did so due to its unusual double-delta/canard configuration. It was fitted with a single Volvo l

SK-37E Stör-Viggen Electronic Warfare Aggressor (SH48150) 1:48 Special Hobby The Viggen is a rugged fighter/interceptor that was designed to fulfil a need during the deep Cold War to defend Swedish airspace in the event of an incursion by the Soviet Bloc, and to continue the fight from hidden bases near roadways, which the aircraft could use as makeshift landing strips.

  4. Original Heller catalogue number: 261 (80261). This is a placeholder for my first build in this GB. Heller had a thing for Saab aircraft. This is the same Heller-Humbrol boxing what I built back in the day, I picked it up on the cheap last year, second-hand: No decals, but I still have the "alternative" markings from the first time I built the kit (it has markings for two aircraft). That just leaves roundels, for which I'll scrounge something from the spares.
  5. SAAB B-5 Swedish Dive Bomber 1:72 Special Hobby (72421) The SAAB B-5 was a licence built Douglas Model A8-1, which in turn was a Northrop A-17, developed for the export market. This was a land-based light bomber, developed in the 1930s for the US Army Air Force. Similar in layout to the Vought Vindicator naval aircraft, the A-17 was an unrelated development, despite being powered by the same Pratt and Whitney Twin Wasp Junior radial engine. It was capable of a maximum speed of just over 200mph, had a range of 650 miles and could carry up to 1,200lb of bombs in it

  7. Hi guys. Want to show you my second Viggen. Early this year I built the Sk 37 from the Special Hobby Duo Pack, now the AJ 37 followed. Some extras were a pilot from PJ Production, pitot tubes from Master and the m/70 rocket pods from Maestro. I used the nice vinyl masks from DN Models for the paint scheme.
  8. Hi all. Currently I´m working on my second Special Hobby Viggen in 1:72 scale. In the meantime I want to show you the first one. It´s the SK 37 trainer from the "AJ 37/SK 37 - Duo Pack". Only aftermarket item I added was a pilot from PJ Production. The Viggen is painted with different shades of aluminium from AlcladII. The base was drawn in Affinity Photo and printed on rigid foam board. Daniel
  9. Another jet to join my NATO Tiger fleet. Czech Air Force Saab JAS-39C Gripen 9241 "WildCat" 211.Tactical Squadron NATO Tiger Meet 2017 1/72 Revell Saab JAS-39C Gripen Model-CZ Decals & masked stripes painted in gunship grey using Hataka acrylics. Only other aftermarket used were Master brass pitot's. I also added the blade aerials which are located on the tail fin which aren't present on the kit. Other people might be more aware to the provenance of the stores pylons in the kit as they aren't representative of the rails used by current operational Gripe
  10. To keep my motivation going, I have decided to dabble in a little scratch building in between a demanding model project. As my modelling passion is themed on Greek and Swedish aircraft, I needed something small and (relatively) simple to scratch build. Also, as I have only limited availability to my modelling materials and tools at present, I need to use what is at hand - so I am going to turn a pile of scrap vacform kit backing plastic into two 1/32 scale MFI-9B aircraft.

  11. Decisions, decisions. Bit of a late arrival to the GB, sorry, but normally love Nordic topics. Now that I’ve (finally) finished my Lancaster B2 project, it’s time to switch attention. As I’m still at work at present, I guess I might not finish this by the deadline, so I was torn between starting a J-21, doing the Strv 103 that I originally signed up to, or finishing a couple of old projects which are well overdue. I don’t think there’s any chance of me completing the Strv by the finish date, so J-21 or finish the Spits?
  12. Here are some news from Pilot Replicas ( https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pilot-Replicas/390440134419981 & http://pilot-replicas.com/ ). I'll believe it when I see it... Anyway a 1/48th Saab J-21R - jet variant - would be of my interest. About the loooonnng announced Saab Sk.60/105 see here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234928441-148-saab-sk60a-by-pilot-replicas-box-art-cad-pic/?hl=replicas Source: http://www.network54.com/Forum/149674/message/1411215996/An+update+from+Pilot+Replicas V.P.
  13. Special Hobby working on SAAB VIGGEN scaled down to 1/72 metal mould made with 3D CAD-CAM CNC technology like Vampire, Gnat, Mirage etc.
  14. Hi all, here is the latest build off the production line Hobby Boss' 1/48 (actually nearer to 1/51) SAAB J-29F Tunnan. By no means the most accurate kit but what it lacks in accuracy it more than makes up for in terms of ease of build. there is barely a smidge of filler anywhere on the kit and it has been a very enjoyable build. I painted it with Vallejo metallic paints and Gunze for the camouflage and used decals from Moose Republic which are light years ahead of the truly awful ones which come with the kit. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
  15. Waiting to be able to go out and get some paint for the other builds I stumbled on this box in the stash and knew I had to built it in this GB.
  16. This wasn't planned. I wasn't planning on doing any Viggen's right now. But I had an opportunity to go to one of our clubs build meetings. About once a month we meet for an evening to build some but mostly talk and some of us go out and eat and talk more. I had a quick look at the stash and grabbed a Viggen aiming for a grey aircraft but when I opened it I realised that I had sanded down all of the panel lines. Without any panel lines a single grey would be very flat and boring so I decided to start on it anyway but it has to be in the splinter camouflage. But I want a grey
  17. Brought out this oldie from the stash. A S 29C and a J 29E is what is possible to build out of the box but I want the J 29F that had an afterburner. The part that needs to be changed in the fuselage I take from the Matchbox kit. I messed up cutting the parts so there are a big gap to fill. I might use the cockpit floor from a Matchbox as well as it is more correct than the Heller tub.
  18. I brought out my last 39A kit for this GB. Even thought the box say JAS 39C it is a JAS 39A inside. It is the Italeri kit with some etched parts inside. The way Italeri divided the parts are strange/bad. Lots of putty will be needed. I made a new instrument panel. The Gripen has a joystick on a console and not a long stick attached to the floor as in the kit. The problem with the left wing was present on this kit as well so I used the same method to fix it as my other Gripen's: https://baecklund.eu/scalemodels/72/39Akits.html I also used
  19. After the 1/48th kits - Tarangus: link1 & link2; Special Hobby link3 (I'm still waiting the Sk.37 two seats variant Link3), Tarangus is continuing its partnership with Special Hobby (link) with the production of 1/72nd Saab 37 Viggen kits.

  20. My last build of 2019 Saab JAS-39D from Revell. Nice model to look and and build tho a few inaccuracies in the model to correct. Mainly the angle of the nose gear door being at 45 deg and not vertical as per the instructions (paperclip mod required) Must thank Julien for the walkaround post that was invaluable for checking colours and position of the gear door. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/71776-saab-gripen/
  21. JAS-39A/C Gripen 1:48 Kitty Hawk The Gripen was a name chosen by the people of Sweden for the replacement for the much loved Viggen and Draken from the deep Cold War era. It was decided that the aircraft should be capable of air-to-air, air-to-ground and reconnaissance missions, which in Swedish gave rise to the JAS acronym. It took 9 years from initialisation of the development studies in 1979 to the first flight of the Gripen, but after a couple of crashes early on, the programme was slowed down significantly while kinks in the fly-by-wire system were ironed out, resulting in a
  22. I have been waiting a while for this build to finally come up as it’s a chance to build something I have been wanting to for a long time. I had previously built 2 Viggens some 30+ years ago (Matchbox & Esci) both in splinter camouflage with varying success, so hopefully 3rdtime lucky. I’ll be building Tarangus’s lovely SH/SF-37 Viggen ….. …..with a swag of Maestro extras thrown in…... …… plus some bits from Phase hanger….. ….finally some teeny bits from Master Model.
  23. I got a Heller SAAB J 21A out from the stash. I decide to try another approach attaching wings to the fuselage. The wings are three parts, one large bottom and two parts for the top so I started by building them together as I always done before. But when I got to the fuselage I only glued the part in front of the cockpit and let it set. Then I glued the fuselage to the wing assembly leaving the rear of the fuselage unglued. This way I could press the fuselage out to the wings leaving no gap to be filled. When the glue had set I glued the top of the rear fuselage together. N
  24. I've started a new build with something that has always interested me. I'm a bit stunned that there is now not only modelkits of these objects but they are also very, very good! I might warn you that this build might sound like a commercial for the company Pilot Replicas but I don't work for them, unfortunatly... These are the kits I'm going to try and do something nice with: I was going to start this topic a few weeks ago but I couldn't resist building instead. I've started the J 29 Tunnan and I'm loving it. I have been building models for the last 30 years but I have never see
