Sorry for the late answer!
Thank you all! What I’ve been trying to do (for years now actually), is to re-create the Finnish Airforce and their counterparts 1939-1944. Not completely, but I hope to get the most crucial planetypes. The colorful selection of them doesn’t make it any easier.
I have even tried to find good enough blueprints to model the planes myself, but finding them seems as much of a trouble as finding the actual models…
For anybody who’s interested, here’s a list of all planetypes that were used by FAF during WW2: http://www.porsimo.net/fb/info/faf_ptypes.htm
VL -planes are domestic designs (VL = Valtion Lentokonetehdas, State’s aircraft factory)
Here’s also a quick overview to FAF’s regiments and squadrons and what equipments they had:
Flight Regiment 1
Flight Regiment 2
Flight Regiment 3
Flight Regiment 4
Flight Regiment 5
Those flight sim models are a great find! The nose of the IL-4 seems too long, but I have to check if I can get them converted anyway.
I have several of Neil’s aircrafts and he’s been a savior of my “project”! But Beaufighter is out of the question as it didn’t operate on the Finnish front on either sides, but that SB-2 is a PERFECT find! I definitely have use for it as both sides had it in use! Thank you very much for this!
And thanks for reminding me of that list, Ledhead! I found few needed models with it!
Good to see you, John! Haven’t seen you around a while and got a little worried already
Yeah, I probably need to ask Neil if he has any plans to make Blenheim or IL-4.
The models I already have:
Brewster B-239, Me Bf-109-G2/6, Lysander, Hurricane, Ju-88, SB-2, I-15bis, I-16, MiG-3, La-5 (and La-7 I think), Yak-9 (not problem-free though), IL-2, Spitfire
What I’d like to still find:
Fokker D.XXI, Morane-Saulnier 406 / 410, Curtiss Hawk 75 (P-36), Fiat G.50, Blenheim Mk. I / IV, LaGG-3, Pe-2, DB-3 (pre- F-model), DB-3f/IL-4
So, if any of you ever come across with any of these, I’d really appreciate to get a hint!
