I see that I must be on secret double "repeat" probation... I must step carefully.

Do a test, for your interest:

Giggle "CAMCO V-liner flying" and look at the images. There will be down the line a silhouette by Noyade (Kjeller FF6) and next by Mechta (of Airspeed Tern). Click either of them, and they are the silhouettes next and the following of CAMCO, the closest image to the ID of the CAMCO. Big Brother IS watching us.

To move things along, it goes under 2 different names that I've found and was a one-off conversion from a mass produced aircraft.

No, I don't mean that It is American though.
Bear in mind what I said, this is a conversion from a mass produced (and very well known) aircraft.
