Beautifully moulded in a pale yellow coloured resin Maestro Models have produced two simple accessory and conversion sets for improving the Hasegawa 1/48 scale SAAB 35 Draken.


K7202 - 1/72 J35A/B/D conversion for SAAB 35 Draken

 

 

This set repreoduces the detail of the shorter intakes and early tail fin fitted to the early Draken aircraft, J35A, J35B, and J35D.  The set designed for the 1/72 Hasegawa J35 Draken kit and is designed as a simple replacement set that requires no kit surgery.  The set contains 3 resin parts.  The early Draken aircraft, J35A, J35B, J35D, also had a different lower canopy with extra framing and this is available as a vacuum formed canopy from Pavla Models.  Overall an excellent kit from Maestro models and only a moderate level of modelling experience is required to install the set.


 

K7203 - 1/72 Pitot tubes for SAAB 35 Draken

This set includes 2 complete sets of pitot tubes for the kit nose cone.  Early Draken aircraft also had long and short pitot tubes fitted to the top of the tail fin but these are too fine to turn in brass.  You will need to check your references for applicability.  The probes are beautifully produced in turned brass and will enhance the detail of the kit.

This is another excellent product Maestro models that will be very easy to install.

Thanks to Maestro Models for the review sample
