Mel, Sorry, the aircraft is not of Italian origin. The aircraft does indeed have an in-line engine.
Here is some detail of the port "N" strut:

Hi Bri
Still plugging away here. Recap:-
Not Russian, Czech,German,Italian.
Biplane
Inline piston engine
Twin sychronised machine guns above engine.
First flown 1935
600 approx built.
OK, I will go write across the other side of the world and say it is the Kawasaki Ki-10

Spot on, Mel. The Ki-10 "Perry" in thread#866, (also known as the Type 95 fighter), may have been captured by Russian-Mongol forces during the Nomonhan Incident, (Battle of Khulkhin Gol), the Soviet-Japan border war of 1939.

Thanks for that Bri. It was a great challenge and it was interesting to discover the many aircraft that fell into that category. I am sure this one will cause no problems.

Again many viewers since this one was posted but no takers. This aircraft first flew end of 1930s.

Very interesting, a great deal more modern than we have had of late. I see it has its own ignition key. I hope it will encourage more thread followers to have a crack at solving the challenge.Is that windows XP ?

I see it has its own ignition key
And since it is a float plane, it also has the indispensible nautical "floating" key fob

dakkg651 certainly takes the honour for that one. dakkg651 if the reason that you did not claim it, is because you haven't a challenge to post just offer it up to others who may well have.

Mel: There are a few clues there to convince me that I know who the cuprit is, and if so, this was no challenge to him. (and hence the 'friendly' banter) 'Tis a pity he didnt let it run for a while though.

Perhaps 'Pigboat' may have a challenge as the Griffin was only a fill in.

dak; do you have a hunter in the office?
