When you find it, don't wait for confirmation, carry on.

Goodnight.

Heven't we seen this RAM-generator recently?

The picture is of Meridionali Ro.37 Lince…… Fiat engine.

(That RAM generator was in a Chrislea Super Ace two months ago).

Dave, you lost me. The picture above is Noyade's own clue to his challenge #2942, and I maintain in my response that it is IMAM Ro.37.

Technically, we are now waiting for two independent confirmations on my response being correct (or Noyade coming back and calling it), or, of course, if someone disagrees with me s/he can propose alternative solutions, and the same process take place with that.

AFAIK Viima had/has radial engine, except one Viima IIB with Gipsy Major.

Edit to say: Welcome to the thread Dave. Please stay!

Well Mate. You are putting me into a very difficult position. Mine is not Aeropro Eurofox, but something else. The truth is that I have major difficulties to tell mine apart from yours, although they are clearly manufactured by different firms in different countries.

I need a time-out to check, but so far have not found the designers' names, or something to that effect.

Tecnam P2010 it definitely is not.

Edit: Mate they are different constructions, the tails are clearly different. So: Not Aeropro Eurofox, but not far, either.

Isn't Aerotrek built by Aeropro?

They have similar tail to Aeropro bud different from mine.

True, the tail difference is not visible in the silhouette.

Mine
