Hello,

Just passing through, I thought I'd give it a try; is it a Mitsubishi KI.2 Type 93?

Or, if not that, why not Junkers S 36/K 37?

Sorry, I have lurked here a little bit, so, I am familiar with this aircraft identification thread. I am not sure how to make a good sillhouette picture to ID, though.

Another very difficult one I see above. It appears to be a light aerobatic or sport aircraft, like a Sukhoi 29, but not.

Edit: the wings look very long.

Scan and paint, mate. The method of champions.

Having said that, no idea what Bri's is, but the style looks very familiar.....

American?

Karlark, you are making history here: first stab wins, and your first one is the 3001st if this segment of the thread.

Welcome, and please stay! Silhouetting is easy, and it is more important that we have many who do it, not that they are perfect masterpieces (although we can appreciate good ones when we see them ).

Once again, stay with us and have fun. There are people who may do silhouetting for you to let you warm up your artistic engines and teach you how to make them.

Just whistle (you know how to whistle?)

Reg

It is American. Powered by an engine from a little-known manufacturer with historical connections.

Bri, see you are still online....would this a homebuild aerobatic machine, or are we looking at a one off? Midwing I guess? With that high undercarriage it reminds me of a RC aircraft

Morning Brian...looks like the Thalman T-3B (in its conventional as opposed to T-tail form).



And welcome to the thread Karlark. Hope you can stick around

Is the wing configuration somehow unusual?

Like negative sweep?

Evening Reg....no, nothing unusual. Flaps are down if that helps put things in perspective?

Edit to say, no, not negative sweep.
