Project Griffin Models started as a natural continuation of a hobby, a passion. For over 20 years, Andrei Iliev was collecting Saab models in scale 1:43. At one moment he noticed that there are too many missing models in his collection, but not because he has not found them, the reason was that they have never been produced. It turned out that many of the outstanding cars throughout the Saab history have not been noticed by the common scale models manufacturers at this time. This is why he decided that it is his duty to find a way to make the missing scale models. So then, from a collector he became a manufacturer. All his scale models are not a copy of other existing models. Everything 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.


Toppola Camper on base of a 900 5-door Turbo. Toppola is a brand of camper shell originally made for the Saab 99 combi coupé. By removing the hatch and putting on the Toppola a car could be converted to a campervan in about 15 to 30 minutes. It is also just as easy to lift the top off and reattach the hatch door and use the car without the Toppola. Even if the unit looks small it features full standing height (2.0 m) and a 170 by 200 cm bed. It could be fitted with a complete kitchen and even a heater for use during winter. The total weight addition is about 115 kg, so the unit is very light. The Toppola was first made for the Saab 99, but later also Saab 900, Saab 900 (NG), Saab 9000, Saab 9-3 and Ford Sierra and Scorpio. Production has stopped in 2006 and SCANDO was looking for someone to take over production of the Toppola.
