Ahead of the Scale Model World show in Telford, UK, the upcoming weekend, Tarangus announces the release during the first quarter of 2016 of two new kits. First up is the Saab J 32B/E Lansen fighter in 1/72 scale. The fighter version of the Lansen has never before been done in this scale.
The second kit to be released is a small trainer which has served in several air forces, including the Royal Air Force and Swedish Air Force. The Scottish Aviation Bulldog, called Sk 61 in swedish service, can now be seen on the airshow circuit as many aircraft has found new owners on the civil register. This little airplane has never been done injection moulded in 1/48 scale before. A true classic!
The kit of the 1/48 fighter Lansen has been around for some time, but is still generating interest. Here’s a review from IPMS USA!
Every now and then we receive e-mails with pictures of built kits. This is something we highly appreciate and when we’re allowed, we gladly share the images!
This time, we have two amazing builds. The Tunnan kit is built by Tommy Killander and the Viggen is built by Mattias Becker for the German modelling magazine Jet & Prop (the review and build was published in issue 4/15).
And yes, these are model kits, not the real planes! This time, it was really difficult to tell the difference!
IPMS have posted a number of reviews of our kits. The Lansen, the Safir and the Viggen have been reviewed. Especially the Viggen was finished in a very interesting paint scheme.. Enjoy the reading! (All images copyright IPMS USA)
Now when the JA 37 Viggen kit has been available for some time, several reviews have popped up. If you would like to read about it, click here, or if you would like to check out a video review, click here!
First up is Andrew from Prague who has built a stunning recce Lansen, using the A 32A Lansen kit and Maestro Models accessories.
The second kit is a Safir in the camo used when the Safir was used as a liasion aircraft at the Swedish Air Wings. The kit is built is built by Björn Fransson and the result is faboulous!
For those of you who haevn’t had a chance to lay your hands on a Viggen kit yet (you won’t have to wait much longer..), here’s a nice review of the kit on Britmodeller!
For the first time, Tarangus exhibited at the Scale Model World show in Telford, UK over the weekend of 8th and 9th of November. We launched the new Viggen kit and also had our other kits with us. It was great to meet customers and fellow modelers and get so much feedback!
Thank you all who came and visited our booth!
There were also some a lot of very well built models on display. This event is highly recommended!
Tarangus will exhibit at Scale Model World in Telford the coming weekend! It’s a great opportunity to not only get a good look at our kits, but also meet the people behind the scenes.
We will bring a very limited number of kits with us, including the new Viggen, and sell those at the show.
We look forward to seeing you there!
The brand new JA 37 Viggen in 1/48 is nearing completion and will be launched very soon. We will exhibit at the IPMS Scale Model World in Telford in November and we will definetely bring the kit with us to that event.
