The kit is aimed at modelers of Swedish Aircraft and diorama as the Jeep helped service and tow Saab Viggens and Grypens up until the 1990s
Note July 2020: - Decals will be made available for 72017 in the future. The printer lost the file in the last 2 months, so there is a delay. Kits 72014 <-> 72016 will NOT get decals at all as they only need licence plates which can be made by one self
Volvo Tow Truck for the Swedish Air Force. It was used from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. It comes with the necessary 3D printed tow bar for an SAAB AJ37 Viggen as well as the Kraftvagn 745G (GPU) which was used to start Viggens and J35 Drakkens etc.
In December 2022, Gecko Heavy Industries was pleased to release via Rebell Hobby in Sweden a comprehensive 1/72 resin ground support set for the legendary Saab J35 Draken, suitable for the diorama builder. After more than 5 years of research from photos and manuals as well as contacting Swedish museum for detailed photos and measurements, it was possible to put this set together. It featured the MB319 Servicebil 405 for electronics maintenance, the Kraftvagn 745B GPU, the Hydraulprovningsaggregat 804, the Omfornarvagn 802 “Humlan” electric servicing unit, 3 jacks, two different ammo carts “Ammunitionslapkärra,” ammo boxes for Aden 30 mm cannon munitions, a fluid replenishment cart, the combination tow bar, as well as oxygen, nitrogen and compressed air carts (Syrgaskärra 873/Kvävgaskärra 875/Tryckluftkärra 8051). Some instrument panel decals and rubber tubes are provided. This really offers ALL known GSE used on the Draken as well as some other Swedish jets of that era that are large enough to be cast in resin or that where ever depicted on a reference photo. Some of this equipment was also used on Finnish, Danish and Austrian Drakens.
The 1950s RAF Ground Support Set is the first release. It includes the post war David Brown VIG1A Tractor, 1 x Vernon V-Bomber 3 axle Electric Servicing Trolley, 1 x Vernon MK3 Electrical Servicing Trolley, 2 x RAF Type F Bomb Trolleys, RAF Canberra Bomb Load with Avro bomb rack and cradle For Type F Bomb Trolley. It’s designed to complement other GSE equipment from the likes of Flightpath, Big Sky or AIM. It should make for a busy Canberra or Hunter flight line diorama and the paint schemes can be quite colourful with RAF Yellow and RAF Blue and later Olive Drab. The Vernon MK3 was ubiquitous on RAF airfields and the Vernons 3 Axle Trolley was widely used for V bombers and large transports until the early 1970s. The RAF Type F Bomb Trolley was also used for bombs in other configurations, rockets and for maintenance. The David Brown VIG1A was larger and more powerful than its WWII predecessor and could be seen in numerous paint schemes at all RAF airfield of the Era as well as in red with flat hubcaps also on Royal Navy carriers. It complements the Airfix WWII era David Brown tractor in the RAF Bomber Support Set.
