This is a small sized scale model with “big” performance. The Saab B17 is not equipped with landing gear and it is easily hand thrown. Having a little more wing- and stabilizer area than the Safir, it has almost ideal proportions for a flying scale model.
The kit is designed using CAD-technology and most parts are CNC-milled for a perfect fit. It is a traditional design using balsa and plywood which makes it both easy to build and easy to repair if an accident should occur.
This model is recommended to the average builder/pilot with experience from a couple of models before. The kit takes 30 – 40 hours to complete.
The B17 has a scale contour and if you add some extra details it can be built to a very accurate model of the full size.
The Saab B17 is Saabs first design and it first took to air in 1940. The aircraft was used as dive bomber and as a reconaissance aircraft designated S17.
