Saab scale models!

November 17, 2011 in Saabology

On Saablog-in, we found this great story about a person who really cares about Saab’s and scale models:

Griffin Models started as a natural continuation of a hobby, a passion. For over 20 years I was collecting my own collection of Saab models in scale 1:43. At one moment I noticed that there are too many missing models in the collection, not because I have not found them, but because they have never been produced. It turned out that many of the outstanding cars throughout the Saab history have not been noticed by the scale models manufacturers. This is why I decided it is my duty to find a way to make the missing scale models. Thus, from a collector I became a manufacturer.

We are proud to say that our scale models are not a copy of other models. Everything you are seeing has been made from scratch. Every single detail is carefully designed so that it fits the requirements for joining the parts and for other technological processes. The process of creating the scale models especially in white metal is very long and complicated, but soon it will be presented under a special section of the web site. We hope you will find it interesting!
