    Right on Green. Thought the 3-bladed prop might give moments pause.

    (I see what you did there Rob).

    My first reaction was de Havilland Don, but there are too many dissimilarities, perhaps.

  4. #19679
    G'day mate.

    Not the Don. When they stopped looking at the model and built it - I'm pretty sure this is how the tail turned out....

  5. #19680
    Think they messed around with the tail quite a bit ! It's the Avro Athena.

    They ended up with a tail about as ugly as you can get.....

    Thanks, G. Here's one that I couldn't find on a search, so if it has been here before, apologies.

    I like it, anyway.

    First thought about Arado because of the tail, however, that was the wrong track.

    That plane is the Nieuport-Delage NiD 122.

    Not too bad looks for a French aircraft.

  9. #19684
    I agree on all counts, Robert -

  10. #19685
    Thanks, Mike.

    I guess this biplane shouldn't bother you for too long.

    This was the most produced aircraft of this manufacturer with about as many aircraft built of that stable as all others combined.

  12. #19687
    This European manufacturer literally terminated to exist in 1940.

    Finally, it is the Koolhoven.
    Wouldn't have thought that this mystery would last so long.

    Over to you, Chris.

  15. #19690
    I waited for awhile to give someone else a chance. Here's another biplane.

    That, sir, is the Cox-Klemin TW-2.

    It was the tail of the Koolhoven that was foxing me - it being the earlier 'Spanish' rounded model. Spent a long time convinced it was a Meridionali !

  17. #19692
    you got it. I knew it but the roundel on the wing helped me.


  18. #19693
    Thanks Chris. Here's a twin - not difficult but a debutante here......maybe !

    Yes, G, or sometimes called OKO-6bis. Bit of a mystery ship. Over to you

    Besson MB.411?

  23. #19698
    Think I'll leave this to our chums in Gaul, G !

    Captioned the MB.35 - but they're closely related - on the Surcouf. Tis a model after all.

    Over to you sir...

    Have been doing a bit of research on the Bessons since you posted it - and am curious about the three-view in Morareau's Aeronefs de L'Aviation Maritime.

    This shows a quite different tail conformation to the more commonly depicted one, which is more or less identical to the MB35, which was originally intended for the Surcouf.

    I know there were only two built - wonder if they were different ?
