    I have personally copied all the photos shown at my photostream from the Finnish National Archive. Most of them have never been published on paper. I try to add more photos as I copy them from the archives and also add notes to the old ones. According to Finnish copyright law all these photos and pictures are free of copyright.

    Probably not since the stuff I'm looking is from the military archive and those you are looking is from a civilian archive. The only photos from HK-1 I know are at Finnish Aviation Museum's archive and I don't have any plans to go there for a long time. Sorry!
