S35 Draken #59 from F11 - Hasegawa 1/48


Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

I'm entering a third build into this GB.
And I blame @Rui Silva  for his inspiring multiple Draken builds for it. :D  

I had originally planned to enter a S35 Draken, but I didn't have the AM part I wanted to use on it in my stash.
But seeing all lovely Draken build here, I bit the bullet and ordered what I needed and now I'm going to build an S35 from F11 Skavsta.

 

I'm using the Hasegawa S35 kit. And my build will be the boxart verison.

I actually bought this at the Dansish Airforce Museeum in Stauning in 2011 and had planned to build it into a Danish RF-35.
But now it's going to be a Swedish S35 instead.

 

And this is all the goodies I'm going to use on it.
Eduards PE sets, interior & exterior.

Maestro's droptanks & pylons

Maestro Apparat 15 (ecm pods), dropped flaps and pitot tubes.

And as a matter of fact. I and my youngest son Axel are going to the F11 Museeum in Skavsta/Nyköping on Sunday to take a whole lot of pictures on exhibits of S29, S32, S35 and SF/SH37's they have in their collection.
So I'll have my own reference pictures when I start this build.
Of course I'll make my picture avaliable to everyone else in the reference thread. 

 

To be started and continued......

There’s never too many Draken builds and I’m looking forward to seeing an S35E being built here. Nice to hear that you’ll also be taking in a visit to the F11 museum, which looks really good from their website photos. 
 

Cheers, good luck and have fun.. Dave

Always room for another Draken in this GB and you've got some lovely aftermarket bling for it as well :)

welcome along again Bosse, and I see you finally gave into temptation....you know resistance was useless!  :D

 

I have a feeling there will suddenly be a world wide shortage of Draken and Viggen AM bits for quite sometime! And I just love all that AM stuff you have as well!

 

Good luck with this build as well, lots will be following it, and I look forward to seeing this one as well in the gallery.

Hi 

I got asked on my Swedish forum what's in the box for the S35, so I'll put it here as well.


This is what's in the box.

Rather nice cockpit.

Both Danish and Swedish drop tanks, I'll save the Danish ones for my JAS39 Gripen.

Clear parts and decals, you get both the early and late style of canopies.

But to build a more accurate S35 I've bought the following resin/PE for it.
Maestros drop tanks and pylons.

Dropped flaps, Apparat 15 (ecm pods) and Pitot tubes.

And Eduards interior and exterior PE sets.

Colour options, You get four with the kit decals.
Two Swedish and two danish.

As I see it, and I'm no expert on Draken, you can't build any of the alternatives directly out of the box.
For a Swedish S35 you're missing a set of drop tanks, Apparat 15 and dual pitot tubes.
And the Danish version are missing the Danish pylons and a set of ALQ-162 Ecm pods.
But all of those are avaliable in resin.


To be continued.....

Thanks Werner. :D 

The fighter nose is missing, but I wouldn't call it complete.

As I've stated above, there is room for improvement in this kit.

So there’s a difference between the Danish and Swedish recon noses? I thought it was only down to the additional camera port on the Danish jet, however that Swedish recon nose looks way different. I’ve got the Heller 1/72 kit and am now not quite sure which recon nose that kit resembles. I like your 1/48 bits, looks like a great package even OOB.

Thanks Dave. :D

I haven't built the Heller kits since I was a kid, so I can't help you there.

But since Maestro does a conversion set in 1/72 to make a Danish RF-35, I'd guess the kit one is a Swedish version.

Now that makes sence. The Danish nose does look quick flat from the sides, so perhaps I do have the Swedish recce nose. I'll have to take a second look and check some more photos. Nice start by the way Bosse.

Just give in, resistance is futile..... ::wicked:

 

I'll try and put some PE panels on it before we go to our summer cottage for the weekend.

You make me want to build an S 35 to Bosse! 

 

A S 35 crasched in Rolfstorp not far from Varberg (where I live) 1973/74. I had an idea to build that aircraft for many years. What I remember it was the same Draken that was on the picture of the Heller kit...

 

Following your build!

Now that the J29 is almost fully painted I'll have more room (and time) for this one.

So I guess we'll see some progress made during the next week.
