SAAB J 35 F Draken
August 23, 2014 in Aviation
The superb Hasegawa 1/48 scale rendition of the Swedish J 35 F Draken. My model depicts a Draken from the Swedish Flygvapen based at Angelholm. Photos on the web show the Angelholm Drakens to be badly weathered towards the end of their career. The kit is good OOB but I opted for the CMK resin upgrade set for the cockpit, wheel wells, afterburner can and flaps. I also scratchbuilt the ram turbine and added various hydraulic pipes and brake lines to the undercarriage.
