8А-1 (В5А) Nomad

Inlägg av Igelkott » tor 30 aug 2012, 08:09

Hej, everybody!

I need some help in identification of picture and text on the tail fin of Sveska flygplan :D
Looks like white circle with bird and short text underneath. But I can`t recognize text :( How do You think what can be written there?

Hey,
It might say "Volare Necesse est" -Flying is necessary. This is just a guess! it could also say just "Skaraborgs flygflottilj" and.. so on and so forth.. :roll:

If you like the B5 you should watch the Swedish classic ww2 movie "Första divisionen" -first divivsion. Good stuff beeing from the 1940s!

Good luck in your search!
Tomas

Hej, Tomas.

Tak sa mycket.
I`ll write one of Your guess.
I saw some marks that B5 is one of the hero of "Första divisionen".
Do You know where I can take it?

Best regards from Russia.

Looks really nice, good wingspan. I just miss the big cowl in front :-)

Is the fuselage in glassfiber? and how is the wing built?

The big cowl :D is inside 2 cm tolerance, so I didn`t make it :wink: Next time I`ll make fuselage as narrow as possible and then I`ll have to make cowl. :)
Fuselage is made of PET (from bottles of sparkling water :lol: )
Wing made of hot wire cutted light foam with plywood/glassfiber composit spar, covered with adhesive tape, tale-plane - coroplast (polypropylene).

Hello Guys,

I need your assistance once more :(

I found foto of 8A-1 which shows plane with no "big" cowl.
It seems to me that it`s one of modifications.

Do you have any informaton about this "no big cowl" plane?

I found at http://www.aviarmor.net/aww2/aircraft/s ... sja_b5.htm that after start of production at ASJA Pegasus XII engine was replaced by Pegasus XXIV and motor cowl became more narrow and shorter. Other features of modified 8A-1 (called B5B) was new canopy (buble shaped - as on my foto) and radio mast in front of canopy. Production started in March 1940. 63 planes was made (serial No 7003-7065).
In the begining of 1941 production of B5C started. It was B5B with Bristol Mercury XXIV engine (made by NOHAB). 38 planes was made (ser. No 7066-7103).

it seems to me that it`s B5B on the foto in previouse post.

and B5C looks like this (bigger cowl)

Hej guys!
I`m back.
After two contests (second was a week ago in Belarus) I decided to update my fleet:)

So I ordered 6 kits of ASJA B5B from Moldova and started to assemble. It will leisurely assemble :D
Some remarks (maybe it`s interesting). I use UhuPor for non structural joints and SikaForce 7710 for structural (wing parts together, motorframe to body etc.)

I have couple hours every evening so let`s started:
Day 1.
Check kits, sanding wings at points of connection and glue 3 wings toghether
Bild
Day 2.
Same as day 1 :D
Day 3.
Sanding body parts and glue half sides (fishy-fishy-fishy... :D )

May holidays made delay :(
Let`s continue:
Day 4
Bodies toghether with side internal reinforcements (coro)
3 glued by SikaForce and 3 by Akfix Pur (because of lack of UhuPor :( ). Sikaforce is more clear, Akfix PU faster but now some glue went out of connection points and have to be cuted/sanded

Day 5
Wingtips (by UhuPor)

Day 6

I need some assistance.
Here is winter paintscheme of B5B from F4 fleet (Frösön)
Bild
Looks white with dark spots, black motor cowl and black stripes on wing along fuselage. But all this about upper side.
What about bottom? What color was used for bottom surfaces and for letters on side?

Maybe Your have some description of paintscheme and marcking for this fleet.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Not being an expert on this paint-scheme, but have general knowledge of Swedish AF WWII paintings.

I would suspect the black on the upperside as you refer to, is not black but instead dark green, standard green as of Swedish AF of 1940-44. The walking strip on the inner part of wing is probably black though. I think this is a winter-camo where white paint was temporarily painted ontop the standard green camo, so that the green paint bleeds throught the white paint and gives it a "dirty" look.

The underside is probably light blue, also standard Swedish AF WWII colour. Colour would be similar to that used on Luftwaffe 1940-43, but a little bit darker in tone. I don't think it was changed when applying winter-camo scheme.

Best of luck with your B5:s! :)

/Martin
