In 1915, the Swedish Army asked for tenders for a new reconnaissance aircraft of biplane type. Dr Enoch Thulin offered his own design, type E, with 90 hp Thulin A engines. Four aircraft were ordered and used for neutrality watch at the Fortress of Boden in the north of Sweden. However, they were found unsatisfactory for this purpose and used for training duties.
Omega Models are shortly to release the 1/72 resin Thulin Type E in Swedish markings, of what was Sweden's first ever reconnaissance aircraft.

A new release from Omega Models and I must admit I knew absolutely nothing about this aircraft before the release by Omega Models, but looks a handsome beast. Resin with vac-formed canopies and turrets. Not a cheap kit though.
