To help you a long, this aircraft was modified to a "V" strut configuration. You'll find photo's of both on the net.

Offline for a while now.

To help you along, this is a 1920's era design. Not American.

Usual rules apply....if someone guesses correctly and it is supported by someone else then please move on.

Surprised this one has lasted so long in light of recent challenges!

Another clue....sounds like it was made from a precious metal....

It is....although have not seen any regulars (other than yourself) on the thread, so I suspect it's still here by default

Anyway another clue....I found this in my search for RR's recent challenge.

Edit, good Cryptic one....I had gone the route of the dragon as the monster, german powered being the RWE power station next to St Athan. It was a nice theory anyway!

It is indeed David....good bit of research I came across it whilst search for Martin's NZ challenge the other day.



Plenty of information about it here: Australian National Aviation Museum - Kelly & Lewis V8 Engine

LM has control

A project.
