Hasegawa 1:72 J-35F Draken, Swedish AF

Recommended Posts

HI,
Finished this Draken a week or so ago, lovely kit, went together really nicely. Replaced the chunky pitot tube for a model master one, rest is pretty much oob, finished as 35604 of the Swedish Air Force.

Such a shame theyre not the easiest of kits to get hold of!!

Very nice indeed. Great work. One of my favourite aircraft. That kit is as rare as rocking horse poo! Must get hold of one at some point. 👍

Conceived in the early 1950s as a uniquely potent Mach 2 interceptor of Soviet nuclear bombers, should the Cold War turn into a shooting ditto, the J 35 Draken first flew in 1955.

 

She still turns heads at air shows, since the Swedish Air Force Historic Flight operates a single seat J 35J and a twin seat SK 35C.

 

Beautiful model of a 'Filip' from the F 10 Wing in Ängelholm!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

Well done; I love the Draken. Did any of them ever see any action? I know quite a few of them intercepted Russian Bears.

Nice looking Draken, Jon, with an excellent job on painting it.  Someday I need to get one of those kits, but as you mention they are somewhat rare nowadays.

 

Cheers,

Very  nice J35! One of the prettiest lawn darts ever built and you have done her justice!

Looks perfect.

I like more those camouflaged J-35,  It looks more aggressive in this high visibility appearance than overall grey ones,
