New Viggen in 1/72 scale!

Tarangus and Special Hobby are proud to announce a new Viggen in 1/72 scale

 

For more than 50 years, the Saab 37 Viggen has graced the European skies. Today, it continues to fly with the Swedish Air Force Historic Flight. However, there hasn’t been a new kit in 1/72 scale of this wonderful aircraft for over 40 years. That is about to change!

Tarangus and Special Hobby jointly released a new Viggen kit in 1/48 scale a few years ago. A kit that won “Model of the year” from the German magazine model fan and has been praised by builders around the globe. Now, that kit has been scaled down to 1/72. You will recognise all the crisp and wonderful detail from the larger kit, that’s not all.. An extra level of detail has been added, with for instance separate flaps for the canards, different canards for the attack and fighter versions and a first for a Viggen in any scale, a RAM air turbine!

The kit will hit the hobby store shelves in the first half of 2018!

Regarding our SH/SF 37 Viggen kit..

When we had already launched and started distributing our latest model,
we were advised by modellers that an important part was missing.
It is the camera sight on the right side of the photo nose equipped
version SF 37 Viggen that was not in the box. It had been forgotten by
the CAD people who made the master – and not noted by us.
Today we have sent a resin part with instruction to our retailers.

To get this part, please contact the shop you purchased your model kit from.
Sorry for your trouble

Now delivering – the new recce Viggen in 1/48 scale!

We’re now delivering the new recce Viggen in 1/48! The kit comes with an all new recce nose for the SF 37 and resin parts for the lower pylon and air intake. From the kit you can build both the photo recce version SF 37 and the maritime recce version SH 37.

This is a very limited edition, so hurry up and get yours before it’s too late! You can buy it from your local retailer or from our webshop!

50 years of the mighty Viggen!

On February 8, 1967, the might Saab Viggen took to the skies for the first time, piloted by Erik Dahlström! It’s almost hard to believe that this beautiful aircraft has now turned half-century.

The initial AJ 37 (attack version) was followed by reconnaissance versions (SH for maritime surveillance and SF for photo reconnaissance), a trainer (Sk 37) and the ultimate Viggen, the JA 37 fighter, which had an even more powerful engine and a fixed 30 mm Oerlikon gun installed.

Tarangus will celebrate 2017 as the year of the Viggen! Keep a look here on our website and on our Facebook page for more information!

In the meantime, upload images of your built Tarangus Viggens to our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/tarangus!

Tarangus to release Saab J32B/E Lansen in 1/72 and Scottish Aviation Bulldog (Sk 61) in 1/48

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!
