Hi!

http://www.wmof.com/n3pb-2.html

Anybody recognize this? Around 20 of these where purchased by Norway and flew anti sub patrols out of Iceland in the period 41-43.

Have anybody got any material regarding these seaplanes - drawings, tech data, other links, etc?

Since a Gladiator is coming up, I can only wish for someone with abilities far beyond mine would maybe try and create one. Would enable us to start making an "Extended Norwegian" campaign. (Me? Currently I'm trying to gather enough data to make plans for an RC model. That's about as far as my abilities go computer wise. Maybe later...)

Yours is a dead link. But there's a nice painting of one here.

Hi Wiking1!

I hope you are aware of that the only surviving Northrop N3PB is located in the aircraft collection at Gardermoen, Norway? I guess they have a lot of technical info on that plane!

Yup, I came across an article the other day. Guess I'll pay a visit. Thank's for the response anyway guys - I guess your right, this is not really an IL2 topic.

May you become Masters of deflection aiming!
