Saab 340 or 2000 (completed version)
Here are my two Saab aircrafts. One still has to be completed, but it will be easily finished. This can either be a saab 2000 or 340 (it looks more like a 340, but for scale reasons, I have to call it 2000)
About this creation
Nova airlines is continuing it's partnership with Cargo, and two of the intended 10 Saabs to eventually be operated are now in Maxim City.


Here is the first one, which is already popular with passengers, and offers great connections to the Nova Airlines world.


Passengers coming on board the saabs come on by a front door.


A group picture of the two saabs delivered so far.


The first one, in a nice yellow, grey and red color scheme


Our first Saab on it's way to the runway.


The second Saab. Due to a lack of parts, it's color scheme is not as nice as the first one. Also, a different tail design had to be made up again due to lack of parts...


...But it still looks impressive when compared with it's sistership.


A top view of our first saab, which looks really nice


The other side of the Saab, no door on this side.


The door is on the left side, and gives into the cockpit.


As you can see, the door does not interfere with the rotation of the propellers.


And it looks nice when closed.


The second Saab actually has 2 doors, one on each side of the cabin.


The tail design for the second Saab. Really easy to do, and still looks nice, not perfect, but better than nothing.

As you can see, the right wing and engine is not completed yet on the second saab. You can also see the other door on this saab.

Quoting adlai plastic The first one was a great build, but unfortunately the second falls short of expectations, by a pretty long shot. I'd go buy another postal plane off Ebay to make the second better. Keep working!
Yeah I know, the second one was bad, which is why I broke it. But It was never meant to be nice, it was just to do things with spare parts. So it filled that role nicely.

Quoting Jonathan Ma Not bad...I built my own version of a Saab 340. The E190 was scrapped because of its structural problems.
Oh...that's too bad, did you at least take pics of the Emb? I will look forward to seeing your saab :D

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 it s too bad they are nt alike, as the conversion is quite nice! i guess you used the new small hydroplane to do those? it would nt cost you a fortune to buy a second one to make perfect, you seem to like planes a lot! for about $15 you d be satisfied, unfortunately i don t have enough space in our appartment, for an airport, because i would have had quite a nice one! good job!
Most of the parts are from the postal plane that is no longer for sale. Only the engines come from the hydroplane. So I'd have to go by second party (non lego) to get the parts I need, and that is really annoying, so happy the way it is. Glad you like these planes :D. I do love planes, huge transportation fan (esp. trains and airplanes). The reason I build lego planes is when I was small, wings and engines were cheaper than lego tracks and train wheels. I don't have much room either, but you can at least build a terminal and have a few planes (just imagine the runway)

Quoting Stephen Abbott I like what you did with the Lego kit. The Saab series is one of my favorite 20th century propliner.
Thanks :D I know, it's a great aircraft, too bad it is no longer in production. I would love to see more around (and fly in one, never have) Have you? Air France used to operate some, but retired them a few years back, and I tend to take the train or the car for inside France travel, and only take the plane for long haul, so I haven't taken many RJ (Taking one to Billund in April tho :D)
