Not a kit plane. European design, 1930's.

I was thinking of the Aerosport Woody's Pusher, but the tail is wrong. Also thought the Curtiss CW-1, but again the tail doesn't fit...

European design, 1930's.
I just looked up. Thanks.

You're too young mate Not Dutch. Go on, make yourself a cuppa and stick around a little longer

Thanks, but no thanks. Catch you another time. I'm sure Trevor will be having a coffee break shortly. Night!

Morning Bri, not the Super Drone. Not a British aircraft.

Evening Ken,

Dog sitting again, so first look-in of the day

That tail has a Brochet look about it! I see that Maurice B constructed a similar looking aircraft under the confusing name of Avia 50, but the photo in AviaFrance looks to have a more rounded forward fuselage than indicated on the drawing and slightly different U/C struts, but I'm always a little wary of deviations from the drawings occuring during the actual construction !!

Any connection, if not I'll ask is it Belgian?

Hi Trevor
Good investigation...it is actually the Avia 50MP, or I would have accepted Brochet MB.20 as they are externally similar.
No photo to offer from my source.
SincoTC has control

Thanks Ken,

I was just coming back to say that closer inspection of the photo and the drawing make me think that the drawing shows a single seater, but the photo looks like "rounded side cheeks" have been added for side-by side seats and the track of the U/C widened accordingly.

I'm just off walkies at the moment and I'm not sure if I will have connection at the house-sit location as they've changed all their computers to Mac and I'm not sure about the wireless router 'til I get there; so I'll call an Open House at the moment as there are others on line at the moment and play it by ear later, so please don't wait in case I can't get back online 'til tomorrow.

Open House

Karlark is correct. The version in the photo was transformed into an autogiro.
Your turn!
