Stunning builds of the Tunnan and the Viggen!

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!

Tarangus at Telford!

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!

The new Saab Safir in 1/48 scale – an immediate success!

The new Saab Safir in 1/48 scale has been available since the beginning of July and has received excellent reviews from both media and modellers. Some of our retailers have already placed several follow-up orders, meaning that it’s also a commercial success!

As a prop trainer, the Safir may not have the same air of “sexiness” as the fast jets, but for Saab it was a great success and served in both air forces academies as well as commercial flying schools. Many Safirs are still airworthy, so there is a good chance that you can turn the kit into your favourite aircraft. We know there are more decal options coming as well!

For those of you who have already started your build of this fine kit, please send us pictures of the final result!
