    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    The SAAB 37 Viggen was initially developed as a replacement for the Saab 32 Lansen in the ground attack role and later the Saab 35 Draken as an air to air fighter.
    The aim was to produce a robust aircraft with good short-runway performance that could be operated from numerous specially prepared roads and highways to reduce the vulnerability to attack in the event of war. Other requirements included supersonic ability at low level, Mach 2 performance at altitude, and the ability to make short landings at low angles of attack (to avoid damaging improvised runways). The aircraft was also designed from the beginning to be easy to maintain and service, even for personnel without much training.
    To meet these design goals, Saab selected a radical configuration: a conventional delta wing with a small, high-set canard fore-plane. The final proposal was presented and accepted on 28 September 1962 with construction starting in 1964 and the first prototype maiden flight on 8 February 1967.
