    TELFORD 2019

    Thanks, I had not realized that RAF Cosford is so close to Telford. I've been to the RAF museum in Colindale and it has been well worth the trip. This makes the trip even more enticing. Br, Jani

    Now that would be interesting to see I'll take the plunge and participate with Revell's Me-262 as the most likely candidate. Br, Jani

    TELFORD 2019

    Premier Inn seems to be fully booked already. If I may ask, how well is the public transport (buses etc) working during the weekends? I'm thinking about extending the search parameters to Shrewsbury or Wolverhampton. Wolverhampton has a football team as well, right? That might enable hitting two birds with one stone, first international model show and a premier league match Br, Jani

  10. Thanks for the info, I just ordered two landing gears for the Typhoon. Who is doing the cockpit for the single seater if I may ask? I found the Aires pit for the two-seater. Br, Jani

  12. Hi all fellow LSPers! I tried to search the forum for previous posts but couldn't find any. So might as well start one myself, right? Are there any Pokemon Go players in the forum? I am a semiactive player myself. I find that anything that encourages some physical activity in addition to sitting at the desk smelling paint and glue is good for the health in the long run, thus adding some years to complete building the stash. Now that the game offers in game friendships with gift sending capabilities I thought that it would be nice to have some friends outside the local pogo community as well. I understand that some might be reluctant to post their trainer codes in a public forum, I know I am. Feel free to send your code or request mine. Br, Jani
  13. Thank you! I had a somewhat different birthday party, we (me and my wife) left the kids with grandma and traveled to Helsinki where Iron Maiden was on their Legacy of the Beast tour. Oh boy, it was a nice gig with lots of old hits I was half deaf an hour after the concert. I should've brought the ear plugs. I guess the upside is that I don't need ear protection at the next air show
  14. How could I forget the Moranes? They performed well, especially the Mörkö Morane, which was the second best fighter in Finnish arsenal, second only to the Bf-109. Yes, you are right about the C.714. It was basically designed as a sports or racing plane and not designed to withstand the rigors of dogfighting. It wasn't suitable as an interceptor, having very poor climb rate. Even the Fokker D.XXI could outclimb the C.714. Out of the six received planes two were damaged during initial flights.AFAIK two of those planes still survive today, one in France, in the Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace and one in Krakow. D.520 would have done well. I think if they had been offered, the planes would have been taken gladly. After all, the Finns didn't have that many fighters. Br, Jani
  15. Hi, Interesting question, I've never thought of that. One reason could be that Finns had tested the Caudron C.714 and found that unsuitable for nordic environment. Then if given the option of a bunch P-36 planes or D.520s they might have opted for P-36, part of which were coming from Norway. That's just my guess, if someone has actual info that would be appreciated. Br, Jani
