Saab A32 Lansen – Heller 1/72

We had an airbase here in Halmstad, called F14 and one of their Lansen planes sits on a concrete pole in the shopping center near the local airport, called Flygstaden (Airport city).
My idea is to, if possible, build that plane.

I found this Heller kit in 72 scale that I intend to use.

I ordered a set of decals that have decals for a F14 plane.

The only thing missing is 2 large yellow P’s with white border, and the serial number for this particular plane. Not sure where to find them, but perhaps I can use the large blue P’s as templates and then cut up existing serial numbers to get the one I need.

I started with the cockpit, more or less as ususal on many airplane builds.

I’ll finish painting the cockpit parts, add the decals and tape belts for the seats.

I ordered this little kit as I found one on an auction site, far cheaper than the one in my local toy and hobby shop.

My intention is to build it in a Nordic themed group build, and build it as the one sitting on a post in Halmstad, from their former air wing. I just need to find a way to get the proper decals printed.
