Looks like they got that cockpit dead on correct. Especially the colors.

09-24-2004, 11:25 AM
Yep, these are the referencepics I took for our Capitaine Haddock during the J8A project...

Great pictures F19_Orheim! Did you get any pictures of the P-35 next to the J8A? If you did could you post them.

09-24-2004, 03:54 PM
Afraid not.... a PBY, a spit, a mustang, Regianne 2000 though

PS. If you run the cursor over a thumbnail in a Photoalbum you will see a small yellow arrow in the lower right corner of that particular thumbnail.. It's a link to quickreply... very clever

Thank's for the up-date F19_Orhiem! Mint Photo's.
Those are some Beautiful Birds. But I'd love to have seen the P-35... that has to be a Rare Bird.
Again Thank's!

Would anyone know if there is any J-22's still flying?

09-25-2004, 02:59 AM
no j22 flying but SAAB J22 was really a very interesting design materialwise (steel/plywood), beautiful as well. The top speed was said to be "fastest in the world ... compared to engine power".

Also regarding aerodynamics the J22 was topnotch... the aerodynamic design of the J22 was very clean, especially when taken into account that it had a radial engine..

SAAB has always made interesting designs, cars and airplanes...

Going to Malmen museum soon again -I'll take some pics of the P35 (J9) for you woofie.

More info about J22:

read it, interesting....

Very nice pictures, Capt. Haddock has done a grand job on the cockpit!

09-25-2004, 04:20 AM
Thank's for the artical on the J-22... F19_Orheim. It say's that there is three still surviving...but only one left that they taxi out... but they don't say anything about flying the J-22.
Here is what they say about two of the survivors.
J 22A 22185 Red "K" Preserved in taxiable condition at Swedish Airforce Station F10, ”ěngelholm. Photographed during the public rollout in Summer 2000.

J 22B 22280 Red "L" Preserved at the Swedish Airforce Museum at Link√¬∂ping. All photos of 22280 were taken in October 1998.

The J 22 was a light and very manoeuvrable aircraft with good acceleration but when it entered service it was no match for the fighters then current. Tests were made against the P-51 after the war and even if the J 22 could hold its own for a while, especially with a skilled pilot, there is no doubt that the Mustang was the better fighter by a safe margin! 200 were built and today three of these are still in existence. One of these is even taxied regularly.
It would be a nice addon for the game.

Oh... 0ne more thing F19_Orheim... I want to say Thank You for the future pictures of the P-35... I'll be waiting.
A little know aircraft that was setting World Records in the 30's and saw action in the Early Pacific and lead the way for the P-47's.
If you watch the movie Test Pilot with Clark Gable... they use a early model P-35 in it.
Again Thank's

Very cool. Capt. Haddock did an absolutely incredible job, didn't he?
