Tjah.

There was AB Flygindustri i Limhamn, close to Malmö, who manufactured Junkers from parts from Dessau (to cheat the Allies).

Boaaaah. That one a three engined thing?

Did that one kill Thulin? K-3 (for three engines)?

I've been trying to log-on and say Thulin Type H, but everytime my line drops and it's sooo slow when I get it back, so I'm about to give up for the day!! OH if correct, thanks, TC

Thulin Type H
Bingo to both of you.

Now, I know that Reg has one upsleeve, so maybe the two of you would like to nominate the next challenger.

Personally I think TC would have got there first were it not for electronic problems. I am inclined therefore to award the win to TC, but I cannot, since RD got there first.

Unless RD says otherwise, he has control.

TC - check my PM.

LM signing off.

LM tlet me run the challenge, given the uncertainty that TC gets his line working. However, I humbly admit that he should have beaten me (this time).

Here you see the advantage of (capitalistic?) competition: Whole day no result, before competition arrives.....

Just a moment.

Thanks Bri. Interesting challenge mate as I 'assumed' the cockpit was closer to the nose and was therefore looking at Finnish, Japanese, Italian and eventually German.

New one...



On second thoughts probably not a good challenge. It's a proposed (never built) radial engine version of a two seat fighter that flew in 1932.

In finer detail...




(I'm in and outta the house till 1130 hrs. Work and home again at 2030 hrs.)
