Cool as fuck. I loved that plane when I was a kid, I think I had a fleet of 3. And the Swedish (?) insignia..second only to the Free French cross.

Yeah, I had one too...it's one of my fave planes...I'm sure that's exactly the same cover picture they had for the Saab Draken kit back in the 60s....but, did I imagine it or did they change the Airfix logo at some point...I'm sure it used to be different...

I'm gonna psychedelicise this one, but keep the Swedish airforce logo, 'cause, as you said, it's fucking cool!

I think the Airfix logo used to be in italics..why would they change it?
I'm sure that's the same cover as the original. Funnily enough I was hanging out in a model shop in Manchester when I was there and all the Airfix stuff has the exact same box art as they always did. I was gonna buy a Stuka & paint it zebra stripes but they only had a gigantic one that was about 30 quid.
