Good morning Gentlemen.

Not bored. Just brewing more coffee…..

Presuming that the rhinoceroid thing on the nose of the challenge is part of the cowling, not of the right wing…..

I meant the top, but as you say bottom, I presume that one is a radiator……

(I have looked at the Computers and Troubleshooting forum, and they are as pissed as we are of the time stamps, but no solution…. At least they have a Mod and an Admin working on it….)

Sorry guys - "database error".

The top is indeed the cowling.

The radiator is central and in front of the gear main struts, and is slightly V shaped.

Nice to see you again HP.

Not American, but whether it is European depends on who you talk to.

Many things point to something like Breguet Bre 19 TR.

Anywhere near?

Nowhere near mate.
OK, but somebody has cut the front of the Breguet and pasted it together with someone else's tail…. Someone in Japan???

Are you alluding to something behind the big water or a big continent from France?

Timestamps? Let's see where this one goes!

LM, is it the Polikarpov PM-1 ??
Pretty obvious question…..

Civilian or military was probably what Mate expected. Anyhow, as I already thought at Breguets, it WAS bigger than the first glance lets you beleive….
