When I originally inquired about painting a few of these aircraft from Virtavia, a few suggestions were put forth by
there Customer Rep. "Phil". One of his suggestions was that of a Swedish Air Force plane. I'm glad he brought that to
my attention because I was not even aware that Sweden was in possession of one. Checking it out on the internet, I found
that Sweden did have 1 HP.52 Hampden from 1939 -1945 which they designated as a P5 and was assigned to the Reconnaissance
Wing F 11 at Nykoping for evaluation. After the war the aircraft was sold to SAAB where it was used as an avionics testbed.
I've included from the internet & a listing of Swedish Air Force Reconnaissance Aircraft during the war. The photo I found,
I could not convert to JPEG format to be included here.
Thanks to Phil & Virtavia
For those of you who have this aircraft in their hanger, please:
Enjoy, keep her aloft & stick that landing.
