From this page: http://www.ipmsstockholm.se/home/08-open-2013-del-6/  <-- Note you can change the "6" to 1 up to 8 to see other pages.

Highly recommended you visit this page/site. It has many other great Swedish what-if builds.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Those truly are inspirational J-29 examples.  Wears Mig wings so well.  Have couple kits, now wanna build them.

Hmm, looks like the only things they didn't do are swing wings and forward-swept wings.  ;D

<...> Wears Mig wings so well.  <...>

It really does, doesn't it?  :-* This J-29 Uti has always been one of my favourite whifs.

The Gripen wings and canards also work surprisingly well.
Cheers,
Moritz

How much faster is J-29 with F-104 wings & tail ?
Looks like Ho.229 wings on pure silver one.  Is fine.
Like the long straight wing versions too.

A very simple RAAR Reserve wiff.  Maybe with the RAAF following the RAF in adopting brighter squadron markings.
