Thanks skwinty.....believe it or not it was the open cabin door that gave it away!
Despite the timing of RR's post it did not appear until after I had posted my answer (honestly!).

Please bear with me as have only just got in...will have one prepped in 15 mins give or take.

Hi irishair, not the Leko-70.
First clue, European homebuild from the 1970's.

Morning Ken,

Just a quick stab before going back to work; is it the Coates Swalesong ?

Open House please if correct.

Morning Trevor
Yes, it is the Coates Swalesong...well done.
First flown in 1973, just 2 aircraft built; G-AYDV (below) is still in existance. The other one (G-BAAH) cancelled back in 1991.



SincoTC has declared Open House.

I was thinking the other day....when we turn perfectly good illustrations into black, should glass/perspex areas such as the cockpit, observation domes, windshields, passenger windows, etc...remain white?

Edit. Thanks Reg! It's all in the wrist!

Edit 2. Out of sequence....again...

Yes mate....short and sweet.

Your control.

Edit. Sydney Harbour Bridge must be very heavy...always drops below the last post!

Graeme, my view is that its down to the individual. Traditional 3-views from Observers' books etc show all the features you mention, but arguably these are not true silhouette's, which technically should only show the outline, not the the detail.

Immediate thought was a Gotha Go 145.....but no.

...remain white?
The reason I asked is the Bloch had a lot of windows and I thought should I try and leave them...but too hard.
