Evening Graeme...not Polish either.

In terms of "geographical" suggestions I guess you and evansb have been closest .

Would never have got the WC challenge...went through all the HB models I could find yesterday evening - closest I could see was the CC, but that was definitely not a bomber. Wish I'd said it now!

OK. Thanks.

Just looking at my 1987 "Times Atlas of the World"....East Germany?
Should I update?

Morning Gents,

First break of the day!

Ken, is it the Hopfner / Hirtenberg HV.15 ?? (or maybe WN-15)

OH if correct please, as I'm back to the grind now!

Could be worse...could be Prussia!
I got a newish Times Atlas last year...lots of changes from my previous one, which was from the mid 60's. A lot less pink on the world map these days!

Worth looking closely at the other two countries you've mentioned

Just want the manufacturer's name for control.

Clue..."Schneider"

Excellent. Manufacturer and designation! My source just called it the "Nieuport monoplane of 1913''.

Back to you Ken.

Thanks Graeme. Initially I thought it was the 1913 winner...a Depurdussin, but didn't look right so had to do a little research. Found a good website in the process thats list ALL the competing aircraft - sadly no pictures though.

Here's something a little newer:

Edit to say challenge withdrawn.

How new is that Ken? Looks like a pusher prop version of the Gulfstream Peregrine?

No idea mate, too modern for me. Probably best if I leave if for "the one who swoops".

At the back, two horizontal tails? Contra-prop?

Just the one horizontal Graeme. What looks like the 2nd one is the starboard wing. Single 4 bladed prop

Listed here?...
Not that I can see.
