Saabs from around the World

Shiny modelcars are boring!

We have already written on this blog about the fantastic works of Magnus Sandlund from SandlundArt. As he says, his works are not glittering and Shiny, his models were brought to perfection in details – and models have a certain patina and even rust.

Look at this Saab 96 model, Magnus Made this a while ago, as a birthday gift to a true Saab lover.  Is there a better gift for a real lover in old Saab cars?

Saab 96 in details
incredible level of detailing

This build brought him very much joy, but it was demanding for sure. A lot of detailing, like all the items for the interior, roof rack with bed, rust holes, removal of body trim, total repaint etc. Base model is the MCG Saab V4 (1/18 scale), the same as he is building his Le Mans 96 out of.

He makes the scaled models of other cars, of course, but also the Saab cars. He Started a new round of comission work, but found a little bit of time for the 2019 Le Mans Saab 96. About his new project he says: “Mock-up with new wheels and rear spoiler. Don’t really like the ”swan-neck-attached” wings on modern Le Mans cars. So I went for the ”jet-fighter-look”. What could be more suitable for a Saab?…  It’s a long way to go before it’s finished, but I have to figure out a paint scheme! Any thoughts? Maybe two shades of solid blue or green? Dark grey wheel centers? What do you think?

Saab 96 turbo

The car model is really exceptional, and we want to finish it successfully until the end. And of course, we want him to make many more of these similar models – because he does it very well, just perfect.

For over 10 years, Goran Aničić has been passionately focused on Saab automobiles and everything related to them. His initial encounter with Saab cars took place back in 2003 when the first Saab 9-3 and sedan version were introduced. At that moment, he was captivated by the car's Scandinavian design logic and top-notch engineering, and everything that followed stemmed from that first encounter. Later on, through his work at the editorial team of the Serbian automotive magazines "Autostart" and later "AutoBild," he had the opportunity to engage more closely with Saab vehicles. In 2008, he tested the latest Saab cars of that time, such as the Saab 9-3 TTiD Aero and Saab 9-3 Turbo X. In 2010, as the sole blogger from the region, he participated in the Saab 9-5ng presentation in Trollhättan, Sweden. Alongside journalists from around the world, he got a firsthand experience of the pinnacle of technological offerings from Saab at that time. Currently, Goran owns two Saabs: a 2008 Saab 9-3 Vector Sportcombi with a manual transmission, and a Saab 9-3 Aero Griffin Sport Sedan from the last generation, which rolled off the production line in Trollhättan in December 2011.
