Not bad but I love the look of the floats on the SAAB

You're right, it is much cleaner

I don't know if the one in the pic I found is real, it appears to be but who knows 

I've got a kit of the Northrop N-3PB is the stash though, could be a good donor for a conversion

Use the floats from the N-3PB and then build the N-3 in the original landplane version with landing gear modeled after that of the Northrop Alpha or its siblings?

The XSB2C-2 was indeed real, it was the fifth SB2C-1 (s/n 00005) and was taken off the production line
to be converted to a floatplane, work was completed Sept. 1942 and USN tests started early in 1943.
Originally 350 were to be procured, but by the time tests were completed the USN was no longer
interested. However, it was the test-mount for the new free-moving twin .30 rear gun-mount that
became standardon the SB2C, replacing the powered twin-.50 mount

Looking at the few kit reviews on-line with images of the kit parts for the Lansen A32A and A32B.  The stores pylons are provided in both kits but in different locations.  A32A has the stores pylons attached to the parts runner with the left and right fuselage halves while the A32B has the stores pylons on the parts runner with the left and right horizontal tail surfaces.  Are these stores pylons identical?  Image quality for me is not showing me the details by which a determination can be made.  Anyone out there with better information?  I would appreciate your help. 

Thanks,

The instructions show exactly the same parts layout, the only real difference is in the resin seats:

http://www.tarangus.se/coming-soon-j32-lansen-fighter/instructions-ta4802-saab-j-32b-lansen-148/


Anyhow it appears the major differences between the A and J were equipment related/internal.
Realistically you could build either from the same kit.

Thanks Jon, was not sure as the kit review image for the A32A had the parts on the runners as shown in the parts diagrams and the image for the A32B had the tail parts and pylons on a separated parts runner that was not inside of the two fuselage halves.  Image quality was not the best for either review and since both quantities were identical I was not confident that these parts were the same or different.  So the only differences between the kits is the seats, decals and box art.
