I'm going to bite the bullet, and say Grob G115E..

I doubt it's correct, but OH if it is.

Hi Jake....not the Grob and not German. But it was designed in a neighbouring country.

The Datwyler MD-3...?
Nearly there Graeme but good enough It is actually the production version of the Datwyler MD-3, which is the SME MD-3 Aerotiga from Malaysia. Outwardly identical to the Datwyler.

Here's one of the 60 aircraft operated by the RMAF.



Noyade has control.

Thanks Ken, you're being generous mate, but unfortunately I'm silhouetteless....so Open House...for the moment.

Nice of you to say so mate, but I take the view as there is no real difference then how would you know it was the SME built aircraft?

I'm silhouetteless.
time to get the black felt tip out

Fiat G.82 it is



Not sure who this should go to...Graeme got it, but Martin was there first with Fiat and its predecessor, the G.80. What do you think? Graeme, your shout on this.
