It is indeed. IHMO, the Fokker-built F3UL-5T is the sleekest yet  :)

OUTSTANDING Fokker-built F3 Lauhof!  :D  And don't worry about the period accuracy of the markings; I really don't get hung up on that kind of detail.  Afterall, this is a whiff; it's your creation.  I'm just happy that you took the time to entertain my request!  :)

Thanks again and keep up the good work,

CPT Mike

those look really cool, esp the Ilmavoimat examples  8) id love to see a post war Finnish schemed one with overpainted yellow bands and the smaller roundel in place of the hakaristi, please, being greedy another i think would look sweet is your post war dart engined one again as a Finnish example in overall aluminium (possibly with a small D added to the prefix code as per Morko Morane with the V addition to the MS code ?) the addition of a black British style 'prototype' marking on the nose would possibly work too ;)

many thanks, cheers, joe

In 1950 when The Finnish government was really busy to reorganize their FAF orders were placed by several companies to obtain new aircraft, although to the treaty with Russia in small numbers. They signed an agreement with Fokker to obtain the F3UL-5T with Rolls-Royce dart engine and assembling them with the Valmet-factory. Here is one of the testplanes which was used by the HLalv 31.

At the end of the war the F3UL-2E and F versions were delivered to the Dominion countries such as Canada, Australia amd New Zealand. Here are two examples used by the Canadian Navy and Australia (RAN) in the Fifties

During the Solomons campaign with the attack at Bougainville island summer 1943 Lt. Chris Magee with his F3UL-2FS from VMF-214 had to make a forced landing on Bonis airfield in the North, but this was still occupied by the Japanese and Chris was made POW before he could destroy his airplane. So the Japanese took it Tokyo for examination. At the end it was send to the 22nd Hiko-sentai for further testing. Here are the two planes.

I second this request.  SEA colors on this bird would be another perfect fit!  I think it would not be long before some of these Fokker-builts also made their way to Central and South America... 8)
