This is volume thirty-two in the Single series. This is a thin book with no text other than photo captions. The book contains very nice 1/72 and 1/48 scale drawings, B&W photos of various details and pages from the manuals showing different systems. There are also two color photos of cockpit details.

This book covers the jet version of the SAAB J 21A. Sweden took the piston powered J21A and modified it to take the De Havilland Goblin engine. The J21R was one of one two aircraft successfully converted from a piston engine to Jet power. Sixty-four were built and served with the Swedish AF. The biggest drawback was the limited range on internal tanks of 280 miles.

This is a nice inexpensive book showing details, drawings and painting information. This provides information on an aircraft not so well known outside of Sweden and provides the modeler with sufficient information to build a nice, detailed model. It will give you the basics you need on the single aircraft covered. I can recommend it to anyone building a model of this aircraft and to those that just want the down to basics information. Now for a 1/48 scale kit from Pilot Replicas to go with their J21A!

Our thanks to Casemate Publishing for the review copy and my thanks to IPMS/USA for the review opportunity
