It was the 2 seat bit Su (22UM) I was after- you can see the forward view periscope.

Caudron Racer?

No, the fin looks wrong, how about the Caudron Renault CR713 Cyclone?

That is a very similar aircraft, Kitbag, not a Caudron though.

Good Morning / Afternoon RR.

Anyone want to take a stab at the latest, or is a clue in order?

Edit to add clue: The single example had a Regnier inverted V-12 engine.

Hello Ken - just finished work.

That double-incidence tailplane (the one that looks like a complete fudge) is unique as far as I know.

Should I recognise it.................??

edit - forget it.

Jake....not the M model, but yes it is the Jaguar

As its lasted somewhat longer than I had expected I'll give it to you, but do you want to take a another stab at the model number?
