We normally only promote our plastic model kits, or occassionaly accessories to to them, on this website. However, something arrived in the mailbox today which I believe will be a “must have” for all of us who love the Viggen, now that the release of the Tarangus Saab JA 37 Viggen is near.. The “Saab 37 Viggen – the ultimate portfolio” from Nordic Airpower.
Claiming to be “the ultimate” of anything is quite a statement, but the book definetely lives up to its name! Consisting of 248 pages, most of them packed with images from masters such as Jan Jörgensen, Peter Liander and Anders Nylén, this is the only book that modellers need for complete references. The text is also informative and thoroughly researched, although I still hold Sven Stridsbergs “Viggen” (which is impossible to get hold of nowadays) slightly higher in this respect. That book anyway doesn’t come close when it comes to images.
So, to sum it up.. I highly recommend this book! Make sure you get your copy rightaway! I bought mine direct from the author, but I know it can be obtained from many of our retailers (some of them cheaper as well) but then you probably won’t get it signed..
