Product description

Last version of the famous Flying Barrel.

The ultimate version of the first truly competitive Swedish jet design came with a domestically developed afterburner and sawtooth wings, making it one of the best performing aircraft during the early years of the cold war. It served in the Swedish Air Force until 1976, during the last years as a highly appreciated target tug.

308 aircraft converted from available stocks of B and E model airframes from 1954 to 1956; featured the afterburning Ghost and dog-tooth wing; all remaining aircraft were further modified in 1963 to carry a pair of US-designed Sidewinder heat-seeking air-to-air missiles, built by SAAB under license as the Rb 24
Today only one aircraft remains airworthy and can be seen gracing the skies at air shows all around Europe.
 
This kit is probably Tarangus' best short run kit yet, and with no troublesome resin parts it is a delight for even the not so experienced modeller.
