G'day Ken and sycamore. I have it as the Pennec-Lucas Dieselis but had trouble finding it on the net and the photo I have looks a little different with the fin and fin-fuselage junction?

I dismissed it but the diesel clue made me have another look...

Hi Graeme....the photo you have sent is the prototype, but the name is close enough for me....I have it as the Dieselis PL.2 Gaz'aille designed by Pennec and Lucas. Well done...

Some info here:Dieselis aircaft, avion construction amateur moteur turbo diesel

Here's the photo I had:



Over to you Graeme

While I have your attention, swinging compasses? I've seen photos of that but usually WW2 aircraft, they still do that these days? (See, I'm not really a smartass...)
