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!
