hello Craig, I have the olimp resin accessories set and I'll probably make the SAAF bird,

If you're interrested, I can ship you the Thaï.

A brief discussion on this question can be found here ...

... but the quick answer would be the latest Revell kit. Cheers

It may be worth keeping i mind that Revell has sold three different toolings of JAS 39. There's the 1989 tooling (kit 4374) which is to have serious accuracy issues, there's their JAS 39A which is the Italieri kit reboxed, and there's the JAS 39C and D kits which are their new toolings.

I was wondering if there would an Italeri re-box somewhere in the Revell line up. Great info. Thanks!

The Italeri 39A’s are still the best early Gripens out there. Be interesting to see if Revell backdate or modernise their version to cover the A’s or E’s once back or a more stable footing.

For a SAAF (or Czech, Hungarian, Thai or Swedish) Gripen You need the latest Revell JAS 39C kit. The old JAS 39A from Italeri (Revell, Bilek, Tamiya and Airfix) can only be built as a Swedish JAS 39A, no matter what the box says. I have updated my article about the 39A and B kits: https://www.ipmsstockholm.se/home/jas-39a-och-39b-gripen-byggsatser-i-172/
