  2. In the summer of 1985, while I was stationed at Spangdahlem AB, Germany, my squadron hosted members of the Danish ESK-729 RF-35 Draken unit. They brought several jets to Spang. I almost got a ride in a 2 seater but the weather that day was below their weather minimums. Hey, it was Germany, not California. A couple of weeks later I was lucky enough to take one of our F-4Es to Karup AB, Denmark and spend 2 weeks there. I think we took 6 jets and 10 crews, plus a maintenance unit. Good times... Since then I have wanted to build a model of the RF-35. Hasegawa is the only option in 1/48
  3. Hi. This is an old one back on 2013 and it is the last 1/48 kit I did ( I'm just starting a new project in 1/48th, and I'm been having lots of fun ) I usually prefer to build WWII subjects; planes and warships. But any now and then I do something different to my comfort zone and that has a bit of an interest for been "different" . The Saab 35 Draken was a Swedish fighter aircraft manufactured by Saab between 1955 and 1974. The distinctive design incoporate a "double-delta" configuration, with one delta wing within another large delta. The inner wing has an 80° angle for high
  4. Finished towards the end of 2018, this was a kit that I'd had in my stash for close to 10 years. Had held off on building it telling myself "one day, when I get better at this hobby and won't make a mess of it". Finally got tired of waiting and just bit the bullet. As I recall, the build was relatively trouble-free and I really enjoyed seeing it come together. I built the Austrian Air Force scheme because it was the only one available from the box, I did not manage to source alternative decals in time. Since then I've managed to get my hands on the more recent boxing by Hasegawa, t
  5. Hi, Here is my Hasegawa J35F converted into a J35B from F18 Wing that was located just south of the capital Stockholm. The plane represents R57 from the Swedish Air Force Acrobatic Team 'Acro Deltas' back in 1964-65. The early J35Bs were then finished in a bare metal finish. Some after market from Aires, Eduard and Mestro Models was used togheter with a scratch built bang-seat, as the early J35 had no parashute built into the seat. The metal finish is made with different shades of Aclad II and the rest is painted with Gunze and Valejjo and weathered
  6. Here's my Saab J35A Draken "19", of Flygflottilj 13, Swedish Air Force, NorrKöping, Sweden, early 1960s. It's the Miniwing resin 1:144 kit which I built in 2010. The kit was completely painted and varnished with brush. I used Humbrol 27002 Polished Aluminium for the main metallic finish and dry-brushed Humbrol 56 Flat Aluminium along panel lines. The markings are sadly poor because of the decals which Miniwing used to have. I had no alternative replacements so had to make do with them. Thanks for looking and comments are welcome. Miguel
  7. Good morning, well, after a "little" break (house building, lost mojo.....) i´ll get back - here´s my latest model Saab Draken J35 XD in danish service Eduard Kit Eduard RBF tags Coastal display case Tamiya Colors i hope you folks like it, happy i´m back at the modelling bench! Cheers, Oliver
  8. Well, it's finished! A most coulorful addition to my cabinet.. For the build look over here:
  9. My new project is a bit more colorful.. Maestro, I decided not to use this.. life's all about choices.. easy, this one.. although I ended up using a Quickboost seat with belts already fitted.. not the correct IP for a Danish RF-35.. a piece of plastic to allow better fit.. XMM Air intakes with Fan, just because one can.. Seat in
  10. Hello, The one and only kit I've managed to finish this year. 1/72 Saab J35J Draken: kit by Revell, photoetched by Eduard, Maestro Models pitot tube, Vallejo paints. Decals are from the kit with the exception of the large numbers on wings that were painted with home made masks. Thanks for your comments.
  11. Hello, I’m a new member of this community and I’ve decided to start my first “in progress” topic. Honestly this decision was boosted by the very nice feedback I’ve received after posting one of my models here. The subject is “a Swedish Draken”. I have to admit that I’m not an expert neither on this flying machine nor on Swedish aviation but the memories of my early beginnings in plastic kits are strongly connected to the 1/100 scale Plastikart Draken. That was a different era, today the hobby looks more like OEM work but I do not regret it (I’m old, with job wife and kid and free time should

  13. next new-tool 1/72 kit from Hasegawa is a Draken III: http://hlj.com/product/hsg28/Sci and Bandai already released 1/72 transformable Draken III this month: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10394143
  14. The Hasegawa Draken is one of those kits that is just a joy to build: accurate form, good fit, great surface detailing. This one is augmented with Eduard J-35 Draken details (mainly cockpit and wheel wells) and masks. The downside with Hasegawa kits of this era are the decals: thick, with the white rendered in ivory and the Draken is no exception. I had been planning to build this as an Austrian J-35O (with an IPMS Austria decal sheet) until I picked up the Flying Colors Aerodecals J-35F/J decals. This sheet is a big improvement on the kit decals and enabled me to build this as a J-35F2 in

  16. Hi Guys, I will be building a 1/48 Hasegawa Saab Draken. The box is the special version of the Austrian version. I will build it in the colours of a Royal Danish Air Force (RDAF) F-35 Draken. This is the Ground attack version.I have some extra parts to go with it. Here are the goodies that will be used: Aires set 4374 J35F/J cockpit set Aires set 4390 Draken reconnacance conversion Eduard set FE417 J35 zoom set Finemolds set AC-90 Pitot tubes & AOA probes in metal Maestro set K4804 Jettisonable tanks x 2 Maestro set K4806 Jettisonable tanks x 2 Maestro set K4827 Danish Pylons x 6 (not

  18. The Hasegawa Drakens are beautiful and easy to build kits. Despite that it has taken me about six years to finish the first one - this, the Austrian J35Ö Draken. Apart from a Quickboost resin ejection seat the kit is built OOB. As usual I used Xtracolor sprayed freehand for the main colour scheme. I just wish there were more Draken colour schemes to choose from. Jens
  19. Hello!! Here's one of my models. it's hasegawas set in revalls box. It's easy in assembly. The only thing that surprised it back part. It is very, very poorly connected to the fuselage. It was necessary to undermine, customized, putty. In assembly I used Aireses cockpit set and photo etching set of Eduard. The model was painted Tamiyaand MR Hobby paints. Weathering- oil dots and washes.
  20. Being a Draken addict, the old heavily weathered Danish Drakens have always been among my favourites. They are really hard to resist! More pictures: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/alfblume/tags/draken/ However, I have only built one, a RF-35 in 1/72, as a testbed. But this is a tiny one. Now it is time for a larger one! And this time it will be the fighter version F-35. The build is based in the Swedish edition of Hasegawa's terrific kit, but with the Danish/Austrian fin tip. Decals and pylons are from Maestro: I started with Aires' resin cockpit, and added scratch-built Danish inst
  21. This little experimental aircraft was built to test the idea of the double delta wing that was planned for Saab Draken. The wing was in 1/2 scale, which meant that this was a really small aircraft. The model is a resin kit from Czech company Planet models. Here are the parts: Few parts should mean an easy build. And it is. But fit of the nose and air intakes are poor, which meant lots of sanding and puttying. But still, there are few parts, so although fit is poor, the build is pretty quick. One hour later, most of the model was finished:
  22. This one may look strange, but the camouflage and colours are actually correct! The first Drakens were delivered in bare aluminium, but in 1961, Swedish Air Force painted a number of Drakens, Lansens and Tunnans in different patterns of green and blue, to find a substitute for the traditional Swedish camouflage in green with blue-grey undersides. One was even painted blue with green stripes! Someone might remember this ones from the old Revell boxart: Since this was the first production version, J 35A, a few modifications had to be made. One of them was a slightly different seat (the
  23. Here is my small contribution to the group build. It's the new resin kit of the SAAB 210 in 1:72 from Planet Models. SAAB 210 was a test aircraft build by SAAB to test the unique shape of the coming Draken in the air. First flight was in 1952 and the results of the testflights were promising. It was modified a couple of times and flew with at least three different configurations of the air intakes. This kit represent the first version with the short nose and intakes all the way up to the nose. The SAAB 210 was called the Draken (KIte). Later, when the "fullsize" Drakens appeared the SA
  24. Finally, I have managed to finish this project that I started almost three years ago. For years I have wanted to build one of the last Drakens in Swedish service, especially those which were not painted grey but kept the old blue/olive drab camouflage even after the J modification - apart from the nose and exhaust cone that were re-painted. In fact, this individual, 10-52, was the last camouflaged Draken to fly. I have used Aires cockpit and wheel bay set, Aires exhaust and plenty of photo-etch from Eduard, including the ladder. Plus pitot tube from Master and some scratched details. WIP t
  25. I started this build a few years ago, and progress has been extremely slow. My ambition is to build Draken number F 10-52, the last blue/green Draken in Swedish AF. Most of the airframe is really weathered, apart from the nose section and the exhaust cone which were modified and re-painted when J 35F became J 35J. Most of the modified Drakens were painted grey, but a few remained blue Airliners.net image removed Solo's great work on this individual gave me inspiration to start again, I am using Aires resin cockpit, exhaust and wheel wells, and parts of Eduard's exterior photo etch (but not
