  1. Hi! Edit: Changed from a AJSF37 WIp to a JA37D/Di one 20181007 See below. It is time for yet another Viggen for me, this time one of the recce variants. (The last one can be seen here.) I have yet to decide which variant it will be, an AJSH or AJSF 37 - I have aftermarket goodies for both - and I will build both but which one first? I am deciding between an AJSH 37 from F10 Ängelholm during the late 90s and carrying a pair of RB15Fs and a pair of RB74s (AIM-9L) or a SWAFRAP (Swedish Air Force Rapid Reaction Force) AJSF 37. SWAFRAP was set up dur
  2. My first Italeri model and it’s a SAAB Viggen. A little research and I had my doubts about this kit with it being an ESCI moulding with tales of bad fits, poor detail, and wrong tail etc. Having made it it came together better then I thought. The kit has both tail versions for the JA and AJ and with raised panels on a relatively old kit the details are lacking but it’s not the worst. All the parts did need a good rework for rough edges etc. Made OOB and brush painted. Model did need a lot of additional research for colour confirmations, positioning etc as instructions are not the
  3. 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
  4. "AUTUMN 1984 - STRIKE" AJ 37 Viggen, Swedish Royal Air Force, F6 Karlsborg Kit: Special Hobby AJ-37/SK-37 Viggen Duo Pack (#SH72411) Scale: 1/72 Aftermarket: Master pitot, Moose Republic decals, weapons from Airfix Viggen & Marivox Saab 105 Paints: Vallejo Model Color, Model Air & Metal Color - and Tamiya Weathering: Flory Models Wash, Mig weathering Products Very good - if somewhat complicated kit with couple of problem areas. Very nice details. Scratchbuilt display base. Built for Nordic GB. Build thread here:
  5. Okay, I've got a build for you that has not seen in this GB yet - it's a SAAB and it's called a VIGGEN! ... what? ... somebody else is building a Viggen too? Hard to believe, but no matter! Let's build it anyways, as it's not really possible to have too many Viggens. Been holding on to this kit for almost a year now - I got it as it was new. Very cool boxing by Special Hobby with two kits and a book. It's a big box for sure, but also quite full of stuff. So it's AJ attack viggen an
  6. 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.
  7. Hurrah - the scandi gb is finally nearly here! Here’s a placeholder for maybe the prettiest fighter ever IMHO I’ll be starting from Special Hobby’s 1:48 AJ 37 ‘attack version’ Viggen boxing But I will build it as this grey JA aircraft s/n 37442 below with the decals from revell’s kit (and a few JA 37 bits and bobs from the revell also) For three reasons: 1 The splinter camo scheme is way too hard for me to do 2 my last three GBs all had BMF finishes 3 the gray with the dayglo red looks totally awesome I have a few bits of AM on its wa
  8. So, I've decided to give this a go... I will build "red-tail" from the box art, with lots of resin and PE upgrades from CMK (airbrakes, thrust reverser, RAT, cockpit set, mask set). And even more aftermarket, originally meant for the Heller kit - exterior and interior PE (will only use a few exterior pieces- I have the wrong set, for AJ37 interior), Master pitots and a tail+drop tank upgrade. The Maestro set on the left is very low quality resin, the drop tanks, particularly the fins, are atrocious. Kits parts are much better. In fact
  9. The end of my F-15 ring the start of a new project. This time I exit of my stach a new Special Hobby production : the Saab JA-37 Viggen This plane is an icone of the sweedish air force. Special Hobby has this model at the 1/48 and 1/72 scale. I was product in cooperation with Tarangu. But the Special Hobby is more easy to acquire than Tarangu product and it is more cheaper ! The artbox show a plane in a grey scheme But for a Viggen, THE decoration cannot be otherwise with the 4 tones (greens, black, brown) scheme. The box permit a p
  10. 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
  11. I currently have two models under way. Both are 1/48 kits, one a Tamiya Meteor and also a Revell F-84E. Last night I was looking through the kit stash and spied my ESCI JA37 Viggen kit. Lately I've seen some really great models built of this aircraft and thought that would be a great "next build". Until I opened the box. I had purchased the kit from a consignment table at Kings Hobby in Austin a couple years ago and had sort of forgotten about it. Well, what do ya know? It has really fine raised panel lines. Dang. I have a couple techniques for dealing with those but
  12. 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.

  13. I am looking at doing the splinter scheme on the Saab Viggen and see that Hataka do a set of colours for it, http://hataka-hobby.com/products/modern-swedish-af-paint-set-vol-1/ . I have not used Hataka paints before and was wondering what they are like and also are they accurate. They also do other sets which l am interested in so may purchase some more. Regards Robert
  14. This Mike (from Two Mikes Resin - http://www.twomikesresin.com/ & http://www.facebook....es/292079953801 ) talk too much... But doesn't say enough. Sources: http://www.britmodel...38 http://s362974870.on...96&qpid=2114224 Wait and see. V.P.
  15. Well, in spite of life doing its best to get in the way, I still managed to finish something ! A bit different from my usual civvie stuff, this is my rendition of Special Hobby's 1/48 SAAB SK-37E Viggen finished OOB and painted with Hataka's Red Line Paint Set (Modern Swedish AF Paint Set Vol 1) The kit was a bit tricky in places and I made a few mistakes.....but hey.....I just did it my way. Thanks for looking. Mike
  16. 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.
  17. Recieved this a few days ago: Having dreamt of a modern 1/72 Viggen since I started building again ten years ago, I started building immediately. The breakdown of parts is almost identical to the 1/48 Viggen by Tarangus/Special Hobby. And details are similar, it feels like a shrinked 1/48 model in many ways - which means great detailing! Panel lines are crisp and fine, the RAT generator is included and almost all errors from the first 1/48 edition are corrected. Fit is good so far except for some difficulties with the JA insert part just behind the RAT:
  18. Tarangus will release their long-expected recce version of their 1/48 Viggen in May or June this year. It will include a new nose for the SF 37 and parts for the AJ 37-similar SH 37. Positive news of course, however I think it also means that Special Hobby's SK 37 two-seater will be postponed. Source: Rebell Hobby (run by the same company as Tarangus).
  19. After the 1/48th Tarangus' Saab JA37 (ref.TA4803 - http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234970637-saab-ja37-viggen-148/?hl=viggen) and the Special Hobby's AJ37 Viggen (ref.

  20. Hi! I am not sure but I do not think I have ever posted a WIP-thread here. I am mostly reading reviews, resources, commenting others´ WIPs- and finished aircraft. But thought, "-What the Hell, why not?" Might as well make your stuff look even better. This is my second Tarangus JA 37. First one was finished of in the splinter camouflage but I was not too happy with it, too many mistakes so I gave it away to a non-modeller that would still be happy with it. But since I am a massive Viggen (and Draken!) fan I have quite a few more in the stash, with waay too much AM for va
  21. Built as part of a Heller 60th Anniversary group build on HyperScale's 1/72 Group Build Forum. A bit rough in places, but life's too short to worry about it. Changes to kit were: - Lower canard elevators and wing flaperons - Modify thrust reverser to sit as per parked aircraft - Scratch-built token after-burner flame holder - Replaced nose and fin pitots with scratch-built metal ones - Use Maestro resin seats with scratch-built firing handles - Added HUD and cathode ray tube to coaming - Added periscope viewers under rear cockpit coaming - Added small brace between air-intak
  22. Saab AJS-37 Viggen "The Show Must Go On" 1:48 Special Hobby The Viggen was Sweden's Cold War fighter, which began service in the early 1970s with the AJ variant, which was primarily a ground attack aircraft that could also perform the fighter role if necessary. It was a tad shorter than the later JA, with a slightly different cockpit arrangement and a less powerful engine. Over a hundred were built, with roughly half of them converted to AJS standard at the end of the 90s with improved avionics and software. The last of these upgraded AJs were taken out of service in 2005. The Ki

  25. Here is my contribution to this group build. So many wonderful and yet awful kits to choose from... I've decided to join in with the ancient Viggen from Airfix. Like most Viggen kits it's based on the early prototypes. This and the Frog/Hasegawa kit is obsolete due to the not so horrible Heller kit and in some way even the Matchbox one! I wanted to build me a model of the first prototype since I'm holding a "Viggen Special Interest Group" at the local Model show in Malmö, Sweden October 26. So I must have a prototype in my collection... Here we go...
