    By the way did you know that "Kekmadar" means in hungarian "Blue Jay Bird"?
    Cheers

    Hi Walter
    I think it is a US home built....It looks a bit like the KhAI17(of which I have a very poor pic) but I'm pretty sure it isn't!

    I think that's the Sebring Wee Wing

    Indeed a US homebuilt. GiruXX nailed her with the Sebring Wee Wing
    1949 and 12hp Richter (later acquired by Nelson) drone engine.

    Your turn, sir!

    Here is a plane that made me wonder:

    powered by a Lycoming O-290-G as Walter knows

    That was a tough one, Uli.

    It is the Barker B-2, originally built as a parasol with an open-cockpit.

  10. #17185
    That's her, Robert. I was wondering about the word “parasol” in aerofiles

    But Walter has it all: http://1000aircraftphotos.com/Contri...hRon/11606.htm

    Thanks, Uli!
    Here is a plane of similar configuration.

    The aircraft is not a one-off.
    It has its origins in the US but wasn't built there.

  13. #17188
    About a dozen of this type of aircraft were built, originally with a 5-cylinder LeBlond radial.
    The aircraft in the picture has been restored to flying condition in the shown configuration.
    It is at the moment the only one which is airworthy though at least one more is being restored as well.

  14. #17189
    I hadn't thought that this mystery would be so difficult.

    The type was built in northern Europe and is a copy of an American aircraft. It is mentioned in aerofiles in the article about the original type.

    Götaverken GV-38 ?

  16. #17191
    Mike, you have it
    It is the GV-38, a Swedish copy of the Rearwin Sportster. The SE-AHG from the picture is now in flying condition.
    I would have thought that some of you might have come across this plane.

    Over to Scotland

  17. #17192
    Thanks Robert. I think that, like some others here, my eyes glaze over when yet another of the 10,000 Piper clones turns up !

    However your clues were sufficient for this tartan detective to work out LeBlond > Rearwin > Götaverken. Although convinced myself at one stage that this was a Taylorcraft paint job, and an obscure prototype !

    Here's something different and I think a newcomer to this forum -

    Mike, just to satisfy my curiosity, how do you manage to type a German (or Swedish) "ö" with a Scottish keyboard?

  19. #17194
    Control Panel/Language + then choose to add a language to the list. There are hundreds to choose from.

    I use a virtual keyboard (mine comes with Kaspersky) and when you hit Windows key and space, the list of languages comes up !

    The secret is to revert to, in my case, the English keyboard when you are finished, or you get into a terrible mess........

    Hi Robert
    Or to get the "ö" you type contemporarily Ctrl + 0246 (on the smaller keyboard to the right)
    Cheers

    Lefty's latest reminds me of the Hosler Fury but the gear is different. There is a host of similar racers to troll through.

  22. #17197
    Indeed, similar to the Hosler, (and also Midwest) but this builder is much better known, producing a dozen or so designs from the Thirties to the Eighties. Sadly met his end in one of the later ones......

  23. #17198
    Kind of a shot in the dark on my lunch hour here, but maybe the original Wittman Bonzo? Except that Wittman made designs into the 1950's though.

  24. #17199
    It is the Bonzo. According to you-know-where, Wittman produced his last design in 1986, in which he and his wife crashed fatally in '95.

    Over to Texas

    Thanks Mike.
