    Those vintage German planes are my passion, Uli.

    Here is a slightly more modern floater.

    Might she be a Focke Wulf Fw W4 of 1929?

    It is the Focke Wulf, Carlo!

    Over to Tuscany and awaiting the next interesting mystery.

    She is an Italian girl. (The fin on the other plane was a nice clue).

    ...and the CF2 she's! a very good detective work Kevin I didn't even notice the other plane let alone her fin!....
    Your turn
    Cheers

    I kept looking at the CF1 which is similar in layout but the engine was wrong and then stumbled upon the CF2!


    Next up, a skeletal monoplane.

    I found DGA 1 now you have Bellanca #1 1911.

    Chris-
    I have it as Bellanca's third effort that first flew May, 1912. (According to my notes anyways).

    Close enough for me. Your historical lineage may vary!

    This is in Aerofiles but there is no picture for it.

    Wouldn't it be nice if Aerofiles was like Wiki I believe we could fill in most of the blanks.

    Chris

  15. #16865
    I agree about Aerofiles, Chris. We nearly lost it some time ago......trouble is, updating, with photos, you run into the old copyright problem.

    After some digging, have come up with the Durand A-45. (Did a search on Szekely....)

  16. #16866
    You got it Mike.
    Dont know what Szekely is.
    Here is unmodified pix.

    Obviously a 3-cylinder motor, Chris - and around the 30's Szekely were the most likely makers.

    This one is a bonny floater -

    Swedish stuff here, Chris

    http://www.avrosys.nu/aircraft/index.htm

    You'll find the S 25 under Reconnaissance Aircraft.

  22. #16872
    What a pain, Chris
    well, you didn’t look far
    I would be curious to know if there is another trace of your craft somewhere else
    The registration is NX18288, but I found that useless.

    Could it be this?

    La Porte Aircraft Co 1938 Monoplane

    In 1938 the La Porte Aircraft Co built a two place, high wing, cabin monoplane designed by Vernon Payne.

    Power was a 45hp Continental A-45.

    Uli that's probably it only info I had was designed by Vernon W Payne wasn't under Payne in Aerofiles.

    Good work thought it would take longer.

    Chris

  25. #16875
    then it IS in aerofiles

    Let's move one with something from the plastic age, probably out of wout’s terrain?
