In July, Tarangus will start delivering the new 1/48 kit of the Scottish Aviation Bulldog. However, this time the modeller can choose from two boxings, one for RAF and international aircraft and one for Swedish airforce and army aircraft.
Now it has arrived! The first ever kit of the fighter version of the Saab Lansen, aka “Lansen Sport”, in 1/72 scale! The kit is beautifully detailed and comes with an excellent decal sheet, as has become the trademark of Tarangus. Get it at your local hobby store!
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!
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!
