    That should be the Palomino N40J from San Antonio.

    Walter, as you probably know more about this kite, is the rather strong resemblance to the Mooney Mite by coincidence?

    I think Mike`s aircraft is N40J known as the San Antonio Aircraft Company`s Palomino (single-seater) attibuted to designer Burt Wilcut. I have seen it described as being based on/derived from the Long/Bushby Midget Mustang, although there may also have been influence of the Mooney M-19 (a military M-18 Mite).
    N40J later appeared in several other guises as tandem 2-seater named Palomino Aircraft Palomino (see photo below) and finally as Integraded Systems Omega kitplane (see second photo).
    There was also a N45J (tandem 2-seater) which may still exist.
    My horse connection comes from Palomino/Mustang, but I can now admit I was bragging somewhat as she is just a stubbern donkey.

    It's no Mooney (as this Wee Scotsman can testify.... ) - how could it be ? - the tail's not on back-to-front....

    I have it in its early incarnation as the San Antonio Palomino. Carry on FF - although Walter knew it all the time. Don't think I have ever seen a palomino donkey - now there's a challenge for the breeders.

    Mike, you have to admit, that except for the tail the Palomino in your mystery photo resembles very much the M-18 Mite plus an engine fairing.
    So, my first suspicion was that this could be a reworked Mite, but of course found nothing.

    My next one definetly comes from a factory

    I think this craft may contain more or less Anatra genes, or am I wrong, FF?

    This aircraft is a development of a very successful type which first flew a few years after the Great War and that was licence built in 2 countries.

    However, the success couldn't be repeated and less than a dozen aircraft of this type - with different engines - were completed. First flight of this new type was end of the 1920s.

    Hadn't thought that this one is so difficult

    The manufacturer is well known, though not one of the big players.
    Several aircraft of this firm flew before 1914, a successful fighter of this manufacturer in the Great War was also built as a floatplane.
    The last plane of this firm was a twin-engined fighter that first flew before 1939.

    I'm not much into civilian aircraft. Looks like Hanriot HD-32 near relative.

    At least someone who gives it a try

    Hanriot ist the manufacturer we are looking for, but it's not from the HD.32-family.

    Last clue before I will solve this mystery: According to aviafrance, first flight was 1928 and 5 aircraft with this motorization have been built.

    In which case it must be the H.410

    The beer has to go to Chris, FF !!

    Finally, the H.410 it is!

    I guess, both of you deserve a refreshment

    I would suggest that Chris makes the new mystery.

    I knew it might point someone in the right direction. Thanks. I'll try to get an interesting mystery aircraft.

    I have it in my birdcage but I'll try to keep the door shut.

    The name of that wee bird is quite frequently used for small aircraft. I think one could easily find more than five different designs beginning in 1921.
