Saab Story J21 pusher fighter
February 19, 2016 in Aviation
Pilot Replica’s first and only release, a 1/48 Swedish Saab J21 twin-boom pusher. Actually My son Kyle built this one, I be just the poster boy. He reports it to be a pretty good build, complaints being a split wing seam and locator holes that are too small. He converted the kit’s A-3 model into the prototype because it flew during the war. Only modification necessary was rounding off the rudder shapes, and an aluminum paint job. He added brake lines and tiny antennas. Anything it seems to me looks good with a streamlined Daimler-Benz installation, even if it’s pushing. Later the Swedes put a jet engine into this thing, I expect we’ll be seeing that version released down the line.
