The Saab-21 has an unobstructed frontal view and all its armaments clustered in the nose, firing straight ahead.

But the cockpit's rear view seems very lacking.

Was this a major issue for Saab-21 pilots in the Swedish Air Force?

High-way to the, danger zone---love the "outside the box" thinking.

One few propeller-driven aircraft that was successfully converted jet power later.

This plane (and other pusher props) have always fascinated me. And SAAB's reputation of making state-of-the-art fighters has carried to this day.

always liked a lot this one, even with its overheating troubles!

An intriguing plane. Then again, Swedes managed to successfully design and build several other examples of aeronautical curiosities. Saab 29, for an example. The Flying Barrel has earned a special place in my heart thanks to it voluptuous form.

Regardless, you have definitely portrayed the SAABs in a skilful manner. It is an excellent piece of art.

And, of course, the layout was done deliberately to make a (successful) conversion to a jet, the SAAB 21-R, easier.
