This one ought to slow things down a bit.....
And it's not from Ecuador.(or Bulgaria)
....and then Mike digs DEEEEEEP into his bag of tricks and pulls this one out.
I'm convinced the "SHT" on the tail has nothing to do with the ID of this one. Likely the surname/initials of the person who owned it. Possibly Sir....(something or another)??
Actually it may have some relevance - but not the owner's name, and I don't think it's an 'H' in the middle.
This is a stinker - it is not from the US, and was made by a company that was incorporated into another which is still very much in business today.
AB Svenska Jernvagsverkstaderna (ASJA) Viking - Now part of SAAB / Registered as SE-95 (1931)
Well I think you deserve for that, John. (and a wee Macallan chaser too - or maybe it should be akvavit?).
Absolutely spot on.
Well thanks Mike - that'll go nicely with the hot weather. Next up.......
Have seen this one recently. It was on another mystery plane thread.
I think you have the better of me, gentlemen. Looks like an obscure Teutonic beast.
IT certainly looks like it's rugged.. or perhaps made of solid steel, considering the wing struts.
Have to wonder if there was a spy in the Caspar factory or did someone else 'discover' their "inverted sesquiplane empennage" at the same time..
"To some the sky is the limit. To others it is home" anon.
No relation to Caspar. From this side of the pond.
It looks like two Revell kits cannibalized to make one aircraft - the upper and lower wings don't remotely match, the strutting is bizarre, and as for the tail unit.....
