Pics of full size VL Myrsky II -project

Visited Finnish Airforce Museum (Suomen Ilmavoimamuseo / Keski-Suomen Ilmailumuseo @Tikkakoski near Jyväskylä…) to see interim display of Aviation Museum Association (my own translation, I do not know the official translation) restoration / replication / rebuild-project of VL Myrsky II. Rebuild-project has been continuing for some time now and current state was up for display for summer break. For finnish language announcement of event see here.

Breathtaking project with craftsmanship out of this world.

I really know that this is so pic heavy post that it pushes everything else from first page, but… it is worth of it. See below. And visit museum!

PIK-21 Super Sytky OH-XMR

Peekoo sent nice pics of PIK-21 Super Sytky OH-XMR.

Great Vasama pics from Denmark!

Got these from Danish builder Joern. They show newly restored OY-BXU and Joern’s model of it. I have to say that they both look great!

Valmet Vihuri VH-18

This is plane which is somewhat … (I have to be honest now) ugly. It is plane which was designed right after WWII and I have often thought that this is an plane which would be result of some kind of committee work. Neverthless, it is an example of postwar aviation history of Finland. Interesting trivia would be that it has same wing as VL Pyörremyrsky.

Tthis example is rather nicely restored. It is located in The Aviation Museum of Central Finland (Keski-Suomen Ilmailumuseo). As always, Some pics below. I have really many pics but it is impractical to put them here. If interested in more pics, pls. contact me or, visit museum, it is really nice place and you support aviation history preservation.

Adaridi AD3

Calling this plane military plane is rather overstatement, but still it is supposed to be classified as such. It was designed around 1924 by Boris Adaridi and it shares several similarities with Gluhareff S.22. See this for my blog posts regarding B. Adaridi & Gluhareff. Also wiki page.

As always, I have plenty more pics so if interested, pls. contact me. Also visit Finnish aviation museum where this plane is located.

PIK-20E OH-607

And continuing with incredibly clean looking planes, here is an variation of classic PIK-20. It is motor powered version of it making designation PIK-20E. Nice plane and flies really well.

PIK-21 Super-Sytky OH-XTM

Here is incredibly good looking part of PIK-series planes. It is PIK-21 Super-Sytky which has zero similarities in appearance to it’s older cousin PIK-18 Sytky. Incidentally, I have started, and not finished plan of this plane. It has some challenging elements from modelling & kitting perspective. Mainly those ‘cheeks’. They should be vac-formed, but making vac molds of that size is….

Rather nice plane anyway, really clean forms. (yeah – it was raining when these pics were taken..)
