1/48 resin SF37 Viggen Recce Nose

Review by Steve Bamford on May 20 2009


This new resin nose by Maestro Models Conversions from Rebell Hobby permits you to make a SAAB SF37 Viggen with the Recce nose using the 1/48 Airfix/ESCI kit.  

The detailing is well done.  You will be required to do a bit of work to complete this conversion but these are easy and well laid out in the instructions.  These changes include attaching the resin nose and adding the periscope view finder on the right side.  There is plastic sheet (covered in a protective film for shipping) for making the 3 round lenses for the cameras.

There is a full page of instructions with 3 photos and text instructions explaining each step of the process.  This is a simple conversion.


I would like to thank Rebell Hobby for providing me with this review sample.  The conversion is available direct from

Rebell Hobby will have more items for the Draken in the future from Maestro Models Conversions.
