Your sketch brought life to the silhouette, and was not too far off.

I have it as the G-22 but since the G-23 was developed from the 22 and is basically the same craft, it's your control.

I added the top view as an edit to my original post because I had no idea were a new post would have ended up in these times!

Nice lines;

Thanks Karlark. Didn't have my reading glasses on, 2 looked like a 3. .

Open house.

Not a Meta-Sokol JEM60.

To help you along, this is a popular European homebuild that first flew in the 1980's.

If it is mate, it'll have to be open house, as I'll be away most of this week.

Cheers.

That's the one - in this case a Dassault Mirage IIIO of the Pakistan AF (formerly with the RAAF).

Certainly looks like one. Morning David, a very quiet weekend on SC...let's hope it picks up a little this week.

Good afternoon Ken.
I was not around at the weekend because we are having a new kitchen installed.

We are all now unemployed and EPTA is in liquidation. We have been kindly given a classroom by another well-known company to continue servicing our current university course. Unfortunately we are unpaid.

No access to computers so I am posting using a colleagues' laptop.

Ah, had wondered why you were quiet. Hope you both like your new acquisition. Trust you will be cooking some nice meals for Mrs LM

Sorry to hear about EPTA mate. Nice that you are finishing off the course though - I'm sure the students will appreciate that.

Cheers
