Walkaround the Saab 35 Draken

Saab 35 Draken is easy to recognize as it looks like no other plane. It first flew in 1955 and the first operational planes was delivered to the Swedish Air Force in 1959. It's primary role was as a fighter but recognizance version and a double seated trainer version was also produced. Draken also saw service in the Danish, Finish and Austrian air forces.

Here are pictures from several Draken. No less than four J 35F all displayed at Aeroseum in Gothenburg, Sweden, two J 35F displayed at Västerås flygmuseum, Västerås, Sweden and one J 35D displayed at Flygvapenmuseum, Linköping, Sweden.

Want to build the Saab 35 Draken in scale 1/48?

There is several kits of Draken around but the superior (according to me) at the moment is that from Eduard (here). The base kit is from Hasegawa but Eduard has added resin parts, etched metal parts, paint mask and decals for four versions (one Danish, one Finish, one Austrian and one Swedish). You can read my review of the kit here.
