Hi all!

I decided to retire the SK2 the kit gave me so much problems and the mojo went all the way down...

But now I'm back with new energy and a new kit, and this time I'm doing it the proper way and building a Saab jet [biggrin].

One of my first builds when I returned to the hobby was a J 29, that kit was rubbish but this one looks great!

A little video to introduce the plane



Pics of box and content












Some extras



I've started to assemble some small parts



Dry fitted fuselage



So far this kit seems very nice and I feel very happy to be back at the bench!!

Thanks for looking!

Thanks guys!

The footage is from a motion picture called "Gula divisionen" (the yellow division).

"looks like you have thousands of those little jet over there"

Yeah isn't amazing what a little editing can do [smile]. But I think Saab made like 660 of these jets so there were quite a lot of them, considering the size of Sweden.

First of all I want to apologize for not being more active on the forum, I don't have much time at the moment and have to prioritize and pretty much all of my spare time is spent at the bench. But I follow all the builds going on and you are all doing some great work.

So this is the progress I've made, cockpit painted, and the pilot got some primer, no PE instruments available for this kit but I think the decals does the job. Soon time to close the halves or quarter with this kit.



Thanks for looking

Great cockpit and the pilot is read to fly ;-). Don't worry about the frequency of posting. Live comes first.

Nothing difficult with dealing with the decals, probably easier than getting PE to looks clean

Thanks Fabian.

I bet he got Queen in the headphones

Thanks!

I've been planning on doing one from F9 that was the wing here in Gothenburg, but I've changed my mind and I'm going to go with the one on the box art. Kind of like the black exercise markings, think they will look good with the dull NMF.

The fuselage is closed, consists of about 8 parts but the fit is excellent.



Also got the wings together, and with most parts dry fitted this is how it looks



Have some clear parts to work with before I can assemble the last parts and start working on the seams.
