HELLER 1/72 Saab A/S 32 Lansen – An Inbox Review

January 20, 2012

My latest project.. A building review should hopefully be posted soon on the BasicModelling channel, and when so this video will be a response to that review.. Heller Kit 80343 Kit Rating: 8 / 10 (Raised panel lines, but good detail) Decal Rating: 8/10 (Slightly pale in colour, slightly out of register) This is the only kit available of the Saab 32 Lansen in 1/72, to the best of my knowledge..

Video Rating: 5 / 5

    i think this kit is quite rare, i never came across it before (same with the real thing). the swedish airforce has some unique aircrafts.

    Very cool model will you build it? Looks like F-80 Shooting Star or T-33! :) Awesome video! :) 5****!

    @tankman13p66 I have built it… :) Will hopefully post the building review some time tomorrow, but I haven’t had time to get started on the video yet, so it may not get posted until Wednesday.. :)…

    @888HamilkarBarkas888 Yes, it is one of the lesser known Saab jets, as it was only used by the Swedish Flygvapnet, with no foreign buyers. It was the first Saab built aircraft to fly faster than the speed of sound! I have seen them fly for real and they are absolutely beautiful in the air… The Swedish Air Force memorial flight still operates two of them, and they see some official use as well, like back in 2010 when one was used to check the air for vulcanic ash! :)

    Another excellent review vid, will keep a look out for the Lenasen kit at the model shows , it the lovely lines of 60s jets.
