Cute airplanes for a little boys room. Bought each airplane kit for 1 dollar at Michaels, put it together and painted it! Total for whole project 3 dollars! Tied on the ribbon and hung from the ceiling! So cute and so easy!
The Finnish Blenheims flew 423 missions during the Winter War, and close to 3,000 missions during the Continuation War and Lapland War. Blenheim machine-gunners also shot down eight Soviet aircraft. Thirty-seven Blenheims were lost in combat during the wars.
Early in the war, the British expressed interest in the early designs of the P-38. However, the Model 322 was sent to the British for evaluation, but was limited by not having the turbosuperchargers. These “Castrated Lightnings” flew well enough at lower altitudes, but lacked the high altitude capabilities of other aircraft. None were ordered, and none of these variants were in a production status to see combat. Looks great in the British colors.
