Production of the Lansen continued until May 1960. However, it was not capable of sea-skimming operation. The markings Markings-wise we are only provided with the choice for one aircraft, which is the 32606 airframe. Additionally Adrian for S and C bands and Petrus for X band pods were used for jamming aerial radars. This was the all-weather fighter version. A pair of small plates under the nose prevented the ejected casings from being sucked into the engine intakes.

S 18A Photo-reconnaissance conversion of B 18A, fitted with radar among other modifications. Four underwing stores pylons are provided, two with Rb 24 missile rails fitted. A special feature is of course the attractive colour scheme!. Serving in the bomber, reconnaissance and ground-attack roles, it also assisted in the development of and air-to-surface until its replacement by the in the late 1950s. Lansens lingered for some years after that as test and trials aircraft, with a handful also ended up in various museums. Pair or group leader aimed and ordered their 2:nd to release, then released their own missiles.

The model will need some nose ballast added as well something the instructions fail to mention. The gun ports were sealed by shutters that popped open automatically when the pilot disengaged the weapon safety. The design was then modified from the original straight wing to a wing with a sweepback of 25 degrees. A radar-equipped Lansen would lead several other Lansens in performing attacks. The J 32C, a night and all-weather attack aircraft, was to all intents a new aircraft with a considerably more powerful engine and new weapons system. It was armed with the same fixed and upper defensive autocannon as the B 18B, but had 2 guns fixed in the nose.

As said before, the fuselage parts are well detailed with recessed panel lines and recessed rivets. The J 32B would serve Swedish forces up until 1973. Four of the eleven were returned to Sweden in the spring of 1963, with the remainder being destroyed as a simple means of scrapping them. Conclusions: This is a modest advance over the 34 year old Heller Lansen. At first this version was intended to replace Saab S 18s in the maritime surveillance role, which was their priority mission.

The fighter-version was designated J 32 by the Swedish Air Force Flygvapnet , the attack-version A 32. The possibility of being able to depict the Lansen's air brakes in their extended position is also very pleasing with this kit - especially since Lansens can be seen in the pictures almost exclusively with the air brakes extended. However, an inlet screen had to be implemented after a conscript was sucked into the engine intake and killed. The reasons for this was that they didn't quite fulfil requirements and that it had been decided to get cameras also suited for daylight photo. According to Bill Gunston and Peter Gilchrist, the A 32A proved to be extremely effective, both in terms of serviceability and the accuracy of its armaments. Does that mean this kit is perfect? Very often A 32A Lansens had four pylons type B and eight type A fitted. In comparison with the Tarangus shapes, the air deflectors of the two air intakes are a bit bulky.

It included drawings on Messerschmitts , , and. Three Lansens are still flying in 2012. The undercarriage was of a typical tricycle arrangement with the single-wheeled main landing gear legs retracting towards centerline at the wing roots and the single-wheeled nose landing gear leg retracting forwards under and forward of the cockpit floor. The armament loadout was fairly typical for any fighter aircraft of the time, this to include just two air-to-air missiles and its integrated cannon battery. Although of limited run nature, all parts are well moulded with very fine and crisp surface detail.

When quickly looking at the illustrations, it seems that most of the steps should not provide too much trouble to understand and are quite clear. The J 21R was a step in the right direction, but it was still well behind the times. After serving time in the front line, around 20 J 32B aircraft were converted into target and jamming aircraft, while others were used for various development trials. The first Lansen prototype first flew on Nov 3:rd 1952. In 1953 a day only fighter version was planned. These airframes were aptly-armed with a quadruple battery of 20mm Bofors cannons in the nose and this armament could be further augmented by her inherent provisions for air-to-air and air-to-surface missiles or rocket pods, the latter fitting 75mm unguided multi-purpose rockets. The Lansen was an effective strike aircraft, providing a stable platform for cannon and rocket attacks.

Rolls-Royce Avon engine The fuselage of the Lansen was produced with a sleek, airframe with clean lines. We rely on event sponsors, private benefactors and individual donations to sustain our existance. Fourteen J 32B were modified, retired in 1997. Guns This version had four 20 mm guns in the nose, covered by shutters. Out of several differing design studies performed, including a twin-engine aircraft intended to be powered by a pair of turbojet engines, Saab settled on a single-engine design, which was initially designated the P1150. A J 32E Lansen on static display The Saab 32 Lansen had a simple general arrangement, being one of the first aircraft in the world to be specifically developed to fly attack missions. After the attack, combat speed was retained as long as fuel permitted, altitude lowest possible.
