That's the one Martin, the prototype ANT-35 (PS-35).

Your control.

Hi mate! No, not US.

Edit: probably I should qualify that. It is, as far as I can see, the only one built. However, although not built in the US it was designed there. It was homebuilt in the other country.

Sorry, no. While the tail colours might be a clue it is not European. RR

Wasn't expecting that!
Is this available today in kit form or was it literally a one-off?

As I said, it was the only one built - as far as I can see. It is pre-war/WW2

Edit: I have to go out for an hour or so, have fun!

Afternoon gents!

Just grabbing a coffee but can't stop right now, a question for when Martin gets back, it might be a help, but more likely a bum-steer !

You were in India not so long ago and visited the Indian Air Force Museum at Palam, is there any point in digging there, or maybe just India??

I've been there many times, mate. No, no point at all!

Edit: clue - built 1930s and a Bristol engine
