.:Hasegawa:. Saab AJ-37 Viggen LE

Critical canard

The Saab Viggen was the first mass-produced fighter to use canards. Canards improve the landing characteristics and stability of delta wing aircraft. These aircraft were designed to be totally rugged. They could operate in the frigid climate of Sweden. They were easy to maintain so that small groups of inexperience mechanics could keep them running. They could even operate from comparatively small, ad hoc runways. This limited edition kit features detailed parts and full decals for a Swedish Air Force version.

Decal Option:

Swedish A.F. Sw AFHF Code: 7-52 (SE-DXN) F7 2016
