If it isn't a Lysander it ought to be !

There was one with a dorsal B & P four Browning turret - but I thought it was only ever a mock-up...

Anywhere close ??

Looks like a Lysander but is not. Wrong tail.

Taking that back

Let's try this then. We have not had it, but as far as I can remember it has been proposed a couple of times as a solution, so should not be too difficult

Evening Reg....first chance to look for a while.
A familiar planform but can't immediately think what it is...are we looking at a high wing, tricycle undercarriage, swept tail?

Having just proposed its high wing, I'm thinking it could be the Evektor EuroStar (or SportStar). Can't find a 3-view but the wings/tail look right and some models don't have wheel spats. Not very confident so will keep looking for a while!

Funny. This is the way it went the previous times, too.

Tricycle, swept tail, but low wing and not Evektor, as far as I understand, and as far as the type certificate calls it.

Not Storm. Being generous and pretty ready for bed: Go back to one response of yours above and see what I did not refute…...

Reg, calling it a day now. From your comment I guess there is a connection with the EuroStar (or SportStar to those in the US), but not sure what! Only other machine that I have found that seems to look about right is the Aero AT-3 or AT-4.

Anyway good night - no doubt Graeme or Bri will sort it out overnight, unless of course Trevor swoops in
