This new resin conversion set by Maestro
Models Conversions give you a complete
highly detailed tail section with APU and two main wheels. The C/D version
of the Gripen was fitted with an APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) and it was also
fitted with larger wheels. The APU made this aircraft less reliant on
ground power units equipment.

This set will require
you to remove the tail section from the Italeri kit and CA glue this tail piece
into place. There is a lip on this resin tail to reinforce the joint
between this resin tail and the plastic fuselage. Detail on this resin
tail is exceptional with recessed panel lines and quite well done vent
detail. This tail is hollow so it weighs less than the kit tail which will
help to avoid it being a tail dragger.
This is a well done
set that is an excellent choice for building an accurate Gripen C/D.
