The J29 prototype flew on Sept 1 1948, and the first production aircraft were delivered to the F13 Wing in Norrkoping in 1951. In total Saab built 661 J29, and they served the Swedish Airforce until 1976. The J29 made Sweden's Airforce the 4th most powerful in the world at the time.

It says Anders Lejczak at the bottom of the picture, so I assume this is said person.

It's a nice render, but the lighting/scene is a bit bland, though the composition is a good choice.

Always wondered what an early Saab jet looked like . .

This one here: http://web.telia.com/~u13206896/images/saab_tunnan.jpg is earlier than the Viggen. Viggen is newer than the Draken (JAS-35) and is designated J-37. Saabs newest is the Gripen (JAS-39)

I always liked the shape of the Viggen but the Gripen is a sweet plane.

This link will get you to pictures of the first Swedish jet, the SAAB A-21R, which is the jet version of the J-21.

Aww hell. I just noticed that the link I found for the Tunnan is kinda irrelevant, because your model IS the Tunnan ..... I am NO good at reading thread headlines :o :waa: :drool:

Yes, swedish cars are good cars. My dad has always driven Volvo. Right now he owns a V70. He's also a Volvo/Renault salesman in one of the local Volvo/Renault offices.

Once in a while I get to ferry a car from one local dealership to the other. I've had the pleasure of driving all the newest models from V50, V70 to the XC90. Also quite a few Renaults, which are good cars too. The newer models get so many miles to the gallon if you drive smart and don't rev the engine up any chance you get. Also shifting gears at low RPM helps A LOT!

And I gotta tell ya....if you can afford one, BUY it! Or just drive a friend's :) It's one hell of a pleasurable ride (both manual and automatic transmission) and they get excellent mileage too.

Oh, I have a new-ish V40 right now. :)

I've got a used Mk 1 Renault Laguna 1.8 RT Sport, 11 years old and still the best car I've ever had.

(Had a 1983 Saab 900 before that but couldn't stand the fuel consumption).

Cool, we Austrians named it "die Fliegende Tonne".
