Right, Nordic GB is here again and it's a perfect excuse to build finnish planes for the rest of the year My summer has been real bad when it comes to modelling - I have tons of unfinished builds (and project logs ) but maybe I will get my mojo back during this GB. Now, this is probably not the mojo-build so maybe I won't start with this one, but I'm still planning to build it eventually. Here it is, Valmet Vihuri by Broplan in 1:72 Yes, I have been warned Inside of the box. It's looking bit rough Vacuform canopy. Second piece - just in case. Good. My plan for this GB is to build HävLv 13 planes (Fighter Squadron 31), It was located here in Pori after the WW2 - which just happens to be my home town. It says 'Tre Bröder' on the side. Plane was funded via donations of three brothers - Vilhelm, Gustav Adolf and Bogislaw Klingspor - hence the name 'Tre Bröder' - three brothers. Top photo is of the VH-9 just after it arrived in Pori brand new. Below photos after it's accident in 4th of july, 1955. While it would be interesting to do the brand new model, but I think I will model it bit later in life but sometime before the accident.
