A full metal Viggen and a new J 29A/B Tunnan in 1/72 scale!
 
The new JA 37 Viggen was due to be released later this quarter, but we have decided to upgrade the moulds! The CAD design was so good that we will now abandon the short run technology for the Viggen and go for metal moulds! This will mean a superb quality kit! Unfortunately this means that the kit will now be released during the summer.
 
Our first kit in 1/72 scale will be released before the Viggen! We are working on a J 29A/B Tunnan, which should be ready by April/May! More news to follow!
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

Both will be much appreciated as we've need a new Tunnan and a new Viggen for some time.

Wonder if they'll later do the version that served with UN forces.  I keep thinking that a Draken in UN markings would be nice.

Noticed how similar plan view of J-29 and A-6 wings are.
Give it the Singapore Skyhawk treatment with a dry F404.

Press release for the Saab 37 Viggen in 1/48 scale

Tarangus and MPM announces the first test shots of of the forthcoming Saab37 Viggen in 1/48 scale!

The Viggen is an iconic aircraft which has been somewhat neglected from a modeling perspective. There hasn’t been a new kit for at least 30 years”, says Fredrik Zetterberg from Tarangus.

“We had considered making the Viggen for some time when we were approached by Tarangus”, says Jiri Silhanek, CEO of MPM, “it was just a golden opportunity for both companies.”

MPM is a well known brand for modelers worldwide, having produced many classic kits with an ever improving quality for many years. Tarangus is a younger company, specializing in aircraft with a history in the Swedish Air Force. Together they have developed the new 1/48 scale kit.

Tarangus will release the first version, the JA 37 fighter version, in the first months of 2014. The MPMversions will followin early summer 2014. In 2015, Tarangus will release the final versions.

The kit is designed using the same CAD system used by Airbus and thus ensures a perfect fit of the parts. The design, combined with the smart layout of the parts in the steel mould, ensures that all versions will be possible to make. This includes all the differences between the versions, including the longer fuselage of the JA 37 Viggen fighter version and the different spine of the two-seater Sk 37.“We’re very happy to work with MPM on this kit.

Tarangus has previously only used short run technology for its kits, but the Viggen deserved an all metal mould”, continues Fredrik Zetterberg, “and the result is actually better than I dared hoping for!”“We look forward to this kit”, says JiriSilhanek, “and hopefully it’s the start of a beautiful relationship!”

Not my cup o' tea - although the Airfix kit in blister pack in my stash looks lovely - but a subject I bet will go down well with buyers around the world.
