    Thank you, Carlo. Here's a 'one-off' development from the sixties.

    The Merville D.63 perhaps?

    No perhaps about it, it is the Merville - or Druine - D.63. Had you not come up with the identification, Uli, I intended to post another photograph, taken from a different angle, which shows more clearly its Condor ancestry. But that's not necessary as it's over now to Germany.

    Thank you Mike.
    Those of you who like may try to identify this.

    Looks like modified Thomas Morse S-4 like I did earlier on forum but which one?

    Chris

  7. #19307
    Full hit, Chris!
    Aerofiles says: "Evaluated for combat, but rejected and used as a trainer. In considerable varied civil use from war surplus; about 60 show thusly on records, with many converted to 90hp Curtiss OX-5."
    I.e. one of those many. Over tothe US.

    She had a so-called geodetic wing construction. First flown 1965 with Continental A65 that was later traded in for a Lycoming O-145-B.
    The registration was later transferred to a shoulder wing type by the same designer.

  12. #19312
    Methinks this is the Foster Aerodyne N827Z from 1965.

  13. #19313
    Hi fabulousfour
    As can be expected you thinks is correct!

    Go ahead, please

  14. #19314
    Thanks, Walter!

    Do you have a photo of the Foster Airspeed with the same registration? Couldn`t find one in the www.

    Here is a big biplane of an earlier era.

    This is the Foster Airspeed N827Z as requested by fabulousfour.
    Note the vertical tail which resembles that of the Aerodyne.

    Great!
    Many thanks for the photo, Walter!

    Back to the mystery.

    The biplane is a one-off from a well-known manufacturer built shortly after WW1.

  18. #19318
    Found it ! It's the Farman Bn-4.

  19. #19319
    Good detective work, Mike

    It is the Farman BN.4, one of the lesser known derivatives of the Goliath.

    Over to Scotland, please.

    A floater - and, although similar, this is NOT a Curtiss......

  21. #19321
    OK fellows, I'm off tomorrow during the day, so we'll let the US contingent have a go at the floater, then I'll reveal if necessary.

    This one is not American.

  22. #19322
    Don't look at me. Busy stretch of late.

    Not much time for digging around!

  23. #19323
    Final clue. Not American. Not European. Not Oriental. That surely narrows it down a wee bit......several models were produced by this one's creators.

  24. #19324
    OK, enough. This is the Model D flying boat built in 1919 by the Walsh Brothers, founders of the New Zealand Flying School. OH please.

  25. #19325
    To keep us busy some familiar lines. To make is easier, this is NOT a homebuilt.
