When Tarangus announced they were releasing a 1/48 plastic injected kit of the Saab A32A Lansen it caused quite a stir. Despite a few problems during the first test shots Tarangus released their first kit just before Christmas and they have kindly sent Aeroscale their pride and joy.

Hi Tim

Nice review. It looks a real beauty! Are MPM Production involved in this project? - the parts seem to bear their hallmark...

Only 80%... has anyone ever told you you're a tough cookie?!

All the best

Cheers guys, it is very good.

Rowan: I think Sword had a hand in producing the plastic parts and even possibly the seats as well.
I would have liked to have given the kit more points, but I did not want to give the impression with a really high score that the kit would be a doodle to build.
I have already started building it, so watch out for a build log.
All the best.
