Thanks Skytrain!

Will prepare one, and monitor it, but then will be off. Was sent packing….

Well, sounded worse than is. But will be off about a week. Screen Addiction Rehab Program, where there is no electricity (no running water, either, but a river near by and lots of logs to burn).

Mooment….

Crack this one while I am silhouetting . . . .

What have you got again, a 26" monitor? Five dollars says you'll be "screaming for your screen" within 48 hrs. You're a screen junkie!

A recognition silhouette. Probably just not detailed enough for undercarriage.

Not Italian.

Not a Gloster, either

Yes

The "enemy" …?
United Nations. Dunno whose "enemy"

Edit: The manual talks about Allied and Enemy Planes, and this aircraft is attributed to United Nations. The United Nations as we know them didn't exist at the time.
