Taistelu Hawk or Fighting Hawk in Finnish.


Recommended Posts

        Hello everyone... I present to you Finnish hawk CU-581. Quoting @vppelt68 the history of this plane is. The model was built in the Nordic Group Build. 
 

CU-581 was an ex-French AF plane, bought to Finland in 1943 and assigned to Lentolaivue 32 in July 1943. Written off in November 1944 - though the plane was already destroyed by AA-fire 24.6.1944, while strafing Soviet landings in Tuulos on the Laatokka. Kapteeni Veikko "Vede" Evinen, CO of 3./HLeLv 32 and a six kill ace, died of his wounds the next day.

 

There isn't much to say beyond that. Sad to know the pilot lost his life in this plane. But he was fighting for something he believed in. So I can respect him and honor him for that.
