RegDep, I do not know when, here is the line from Wiki.

Edmund Schneider emigrated to Australia, where he developed the Baby design into his Baby 3 and Baby 4, which had enclosed cockpits.


Spit161, welcome, (somewhat belated)

This had open cockpits.

Builder was a gliding club established in 1942 by employees of the Department of Aircraft Production, Beaufort Division, which built Bristol Beaufort bombers for the Royal Australian Air Force.

It's like pulling hen's teeth.

This one should make you squint.

Rikugun Ki-93 Giken, but I don't think there was an Allied Code Name assigned. Was there?

It was a prototype and did not make it to the war, so maybe did not need one.

Ok, you can beat me by one point.

Rikugun, a cool looking aircraft.

You have control, Spit161.

RegDep, according to Japanese Army Aircraft 1930-1950 - The Big Omnipedia

Ki-93 Rikugun Type 6 light bomber. CADS code name Nick. Heavily-armored ground attack aircraft possibly inspired by American A-38 Grizzly and Australian Commonwealth Ostrich. Intended to replace light bombers suich as the Ki-51 and Ki-71 it was too large and heavy to copy their essential characteristic, an ability to operate off bases only a few minutes from the front lines. Production of the Ki-93 was limited as a result and the type quickly faded from front-line service.
