    Product Description
    The S29C Tunnan was a converted J29B Tunnan fighter, fitted with five cameras that replaced the guns - so no armament was carried on this version. It could be fitted with extra fuel tanks or ECM pods.

    The letter S is derived from the Swedish word Spaning, translating into reconnaissance. A total of 76 aircraft were built from 1954 through 1956. They were later modified with an improved dog tooth wing design, introduced on the J 29E.

    CONTENTS: The nose section of AZ 1/48 scale model kits of SAAB 29 Tunnan suffers from a very odd shape of the nose section. We first produced the correction set MMK4847 to deal with this matter. Maestro Model has taken that set further to make it possible to build the S29. This set contains a resin nose, camera sight and two units of the canopy, so you get an extra chance if you fail cutting it out first time.

    AZ models names their model a J29E/F Tunnan. This is not correct since the 29F had an afterburner, leading to a slightly bigger engine bay. However, the difference is not very obvious if you don?t compare drawings. The kit is more like an F. One COULD make an engine conversion by rebuilding the engine section. However, we are fairly sure that most modellers will accept this small difference.
