In the late 60's and early 70's, the USAF and USN were starting dedicated dissimilar air combat training programs (Aggressors and Top Gun). The USAF wanted a small, supersonic fighter that had the size, performance and appearance that could simulate the Mig-21. At the time, the USAF fighters were big powerful long range fighters (F-105, F-4...) so they went off shore looking for options. They eventually leased a squadron of SAAB J-35 Drakens.  These became the first Aggressor Squadron.

That looks good. I like the dark green edges to the light green stripes: very nice effect. :thumbsup:

That has a remarkably 'Soviet' look to it Ed, nice one indeed.  :thumbsup: :bow:

Wow, really nice!  Extra points for getting a fantasitc result from such a "basic" kit.

She really looks the part- an even has the instrumentation pod, so they can debrief those hotshot fighter pilots exactly how the got "killed"   :thumbsup:

A late find... the idea's not as far-fetched as it seems!  :thumbsup:



Looks like an ex-Denmark aircraft.
