Saab AJ-37 VIGGEN
SCALE & KIT
1/48 Special Hobby
The Saab 37 Viggen (“Thunderbolt”) is a retired Swedish single-seat, single-engine, short-medium range combat aircraft. Development work on the type was initiated at Saab in 1952 and, following the selection of a radical delta wing configuration, the resulting aircraft performed its first flight on 8 February 1967 and entered service in 21 June 1971. The Viggen holds the distinction of being the first canard design to be produced in quantity. The Viggen was also the most advanced fighter jet in Europe until the introduction of the Panavia Tornado into operational service in 1981.
Several distinct variants of the Viggen were produced to perform the roles of strike fighter (AJ 37), aerial reconnaissance (SF 37), maritime patrol aircraft (SH 37) and a two-seat trainer (SK 37). In the late 1970s, the all-weather fighter-interceptor aircraft JA 37 variant was introduced. In November 2005, the Viggen was retired from service by the Swedish Air Force, the sole operator of the type, having been replaced by the newer Saab JAS 39 Gripen.

My name is Afranio Prado and I live in Brazil. I’m in the group looking for people who can help me with a project to assemble an AJ-37 Viggen 1/32. I’m looking for paint masks for camouflage in shades of green and brown. Would anyone who can read this message have any JPEG or PDF images of the mask they used in their kit? Could you give me this file? In my country it is very difficult to buy this and other products for our hobby because of the dollar that is worth about 5.60 in my currency. I would like to try to reproduce this mask on the scale that I am going to use. If you can help me I would appreciate it very much.
See you later.
