This is the picture I silhouetted.

I obviously made a lousy silhouette and for that I apologise.

But, Volpar Turboliner it is.

Had to go out for a while; back now, but heading to the kitchen.

Looks like the infamous "Prune Clock Bug" has been upsetting things again!!

Not the best silhouette skwinty(as you admit), but obviously good enough for irishair2001 to ID the Volpar Turboliner correctlly , as skwinty confirmed in Post #2000. Got anything to post irishair??

Actually LM the way to confuse an Oirish Man is to stand 3 shovels against a wall and tell him to take his PICK,

As no takers for the OH, here's a quick one for the night shift:



Skwinty, your silhouette was perhaps not perfect but good enough, and well recognisable as the Volpar....other than an exaggerated kink in the nose couldn't see much wrong with it. All I would ask is that you try to make them a little larger...if the image is a low resolution you can enlarge it using Paint...or at least that's what I use.

Trucky, nice to see someone having a go

Not Czech (but is is a European design), and not from the '70's. Try the 1950's.

Good afternoon Ken.

Some of us are busy.

Yours reminds me of the Ambrosini F4 Rondone somewhat.
