Seems we have a stalled thread. As it's been nearly 24 hours Open House should apply. And with that in mind, let's get things moving again

Good morning Ken,

Not many about over the weekend!! Sycamore's light was on when I awarded him the Challenge thread, so I asked him if he had a new one to offer (and reminded him about this one), but it went out (timed?) without answer a little later. He had been back and requested OH on Challenge when I checked later in the afternoon and again his light was still on, so I guessed he was in the process of preparing something for here, but it seems not, next time maybe, but after nearly twenty four hours, I totally agree with your decision to carry on !

I think I see evidence of guns in the front and top views, so it's a fighter? Mid twenties/early thirties? Continental Europe?

Just off to work now, going to be a busy day but will try and look in later

Evening Graeme.

Gordou-Leseurre GL-410....?
That's the one

Yes, saw that it was very quiet...unfortunately I was too busy at the back end of last week to look in. When I finally managed on Saturday night we were pending the next challenge from sycamore.

Noyade has control.

Thanks Ken.

Don't know a lot about it so don't grill me. But I did find a photo of it on the web.
