1/48 Tarangus Saab JA-37 Viggen

I started this kit in 2016 (and only finished it a week before publishing this article) when I came back to modeling after a 2 year hiatus (due to personal issues.) The kit itself is a short run kit that isn't the easiest to build or [...]

HaseDraken

Here’s my Hasegawa Saab J-35 Draken. I’ve always liked the lines of this aircraft ever since I found and built the old Revell kit when I was a kid. A typically nice Hasegawa kit and because of the design of the aircraft, a pretty easy [...]

1/72 Scale Heller J-29E SAAB Tunnan “Flying Barrel” by Don Weixl June 2020

I have had this kit in my stash since the late 70s! I think it cost about $4.00 Canadian back in the day. Heller’s 1/72 scale aircraft kits were generally really good for that era, although the decals were a bit on the crude side. Raised [...]

The Saab 37 Viggen ("Thunderbolt") is a retired Swedish single-seat, single-engine, short-medium range combat aircraft. Development work on the type was initiated at Saab in 1952 and, following the selection of a radical delta [...]

A Real "SAAB" Story

What if… RAAF JAS-39 Gripen

This is the first in a series of ‘what if’ aircraft that I’m building. In 1999 the Australian Department of Defence announced Project AIR 6000 "New Air Combat Capability (NACC)", which was intended to find a replacement for [...]

The Saab Safir by Hellera flying gemstone in gentlemen's scale

The meaning of the type designation "Safir" should appear to me in the course of this project more and more suitable for this small model. Translated from Swedish it means "sapphire", so I learned to appreciate the [...]
