  1. Fly is to release a family of 1/32nd Saab J-29 Tunnan kits in 2017 2018 2019 2020 ? - ref. 32022 - Saab J-29F Tunnan - ref. 32023 - Saab J-29B Tunnan Source: https://www.facebook.com/largescalemodeller/posts/1275601632511789 V.P.
  2. 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.
  3. Yes I am that idiot and yes I am going to build it. As I'm sure most of you are aware the Hobby Boss 1/48 J-29 Tunnan has come in for a fair amount of stick, mostly because it is fact not 1/48 scale as Hobby Boss made a bit of a boo boo with their calculations which means that it actually comes in at around 1/51 scale which as far as I'm aware is not one which is used a great deal, at least not intentionally. Aside form the scale issue it actually isn't that bad a kit, it is certainly a lot better than the AZ kit and is well engineered and if it's anything like other Hobby Boss kits
  4. 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.
  5. 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

  7. Hi Guys Here is my latest completed model, I thought it would be a 'quickish' build and paint, but it took a little longer, I will add some more detail and a few pictures to look out for a few trips and snags, not all kit related there were some of my own. The kit is good but I found a few little niggles that I could have done without, or the manufacturer could have taken a little more care. Would I build another....YES but would certainly do a few things differently. Straight out the box, and painted mainly with Vallejo Acrylic 'Metal Color' cheers Ali
  8. Probably the best kit I've ever built. Bravo Pilot Replicas Thanks for watching Andrew
  9. Hi all, No pics organized yet, but I've done enough to at least admit to it. I'll update this later with the backstory (that's not organized yet, either!) Imagine, if you will, that when Grumman was asked to investigate a swept-wing carrier fighter when their F9F-2 was given the green light, rather than going too far with requirements and airframe in the XF10F program, they had instead successfully argued to keep it simple and just build a small testbed that also had potential as a fleet-defence interceptor/ day fighter? I got the kit because when it was announced I saw the resemblance (in

  11. And so this flying barrell is finished: For those of you that have not seen my WIP, (here), here is a brief summary of this model. And let us start with the positive side. First: It looks like a Tunnan. And maybe that is the most important thing. AZ Models J 29 did not. Fit is also terrific, no problems at all, which makes it very easy to build, almost a weekend project. Surface detailing is fine and crisp and panel lines are correct. Cockpit is fairly good detailed as well as the wheel wells. It has a nice boxart, and the box is also very nice, made from - what I can see - very reliable
  12. This is my latest completion - SAAB J29B Tunnan assembled from new Tarangus kit OOB decals represent aircraft from F.8 Wing at Barkarby near Stockholm somewhere in mid-50s Kit is quite nice overall - but be patient to align wings, stabiliser, and particularly resin wheel bays. My additions included resin wheels from Aires, metal pitot tubes, some improvements in cockpit - seat harness, port side wall inside the cabin. I also replaced original exhaust pipe (a veeery basic!) with a plastic ring+resin nozzle for MiG-15. I cut the rear part of MiG-15's nozzle with turbine blades and attached it
  13. Some of you will have received the newsletter from Tarangus concerning their much anticipated (by me and plenty of others) 1:48 kit of the Saab Viggen. They have decided to dump the short-run technology and go for a full-metal modern tooling that will have the effect of improving the finished article, but delay its release until the summer. GOOD says I!!! I'd rather a better Viggen than one in my hands now. More power to their Swedish elbows, and good luck with the extra work they've let themselves in for! In the same newsletter, they announced their first 1:72 kit, which is the J 29A/B
  14. For Swedish modeller, the announcement of AZ Models Tunnan was one of the best news ever. But if the happiness of the announcement was great, the sadness when it was finally released, was even greater. You do not have to be an expert on this Swedish jet Icon to see that the aircraft AZ released, was something completely different from the beautiful flying barrel of Sweden. Anyway, I bought it, hoping that someone would release a conversion in the future. Maestro also did, but this was just an expensive way to create a Tunnan that was just slightly better than AZ's original try. Recently AZ
  15. This one was recently reviewed at Britmodeller (excellent review btw!). And here is a finished build with markings from F 13 wing, Norrköping, Sweden, late fifties: Being a short-run kit, this is really excellent. Great fit, almost no filler at all was needed and fine, recessed panel lines. And remembering the poor AZ Model kit in 1/48, I am happy to say that the shape is correct. Nothing bad? Well, the resin seat could have been better detailed, especially the back side. The panel behind the seat is also missing, but is easily made from plasticard. The resin wheel bays is a bit tricky t
  16. Here are a few more pics on the Tunnan that I posted earlier today on the WIP section: F 4-53 or 29507 was the last Tunnan in service. Although the Swedish Tunnans were taken out of service in the late sixties, this one was kept in flying condition until 1976 when it did its last flights during the 50-year celebration of the Swedish Air Force. Before that, it served for a couple of years as target-tug, the yellow day-glow panels were applied at that time. Pictures from the build can be found here. It was more of an experiment, to see if it was possible to create something that is more
