Special Hobby & Italeri 1/48 Viggen AJ, AJS 37 & SK 37E
The Viggen is a great aircraft. There are plenty of photographs including in flight that show intricate weathering patterns.
Special Hobby's ex Tarangus molds captures well the lines of the aircraft. It is a short run kit that requires much work to put it together. You may want to add plastic disks to the too thin main wheels. I used templates for the splinter camouflage of the AJ 37.
The AJS 37 is an Italeri kit (ex Escii.) It is very basic and has raised panel lines. I replaced many parts from spares left in the Special Hobby kit sprues. These included the canards, Vertical stabilizer, vents, pylons and an ejection seat. An auxiliary generator is an added feature in the SK 37E kit. The generator is extended for most of the time when the aircraft is on the ground. However the actual position of the generator does not conform with the panel lines, although the instructions show the correct position.
