I agree with that, but I've seen it on another site with a different name, so I elected to just go with the Campini Fighter project and let the historians fight over the details.

Have a good day Mate, catchya later

Yawn, scratch etc, another day (already), another challenge !!

Evening Brian

Is it a mystery ship, is it a car, is it a 'plane, is it a Waterman's or a Hallock ?

I'll plump for the Hallock HT-1 Roadwing ??

Open House please if correct as I'm off for "walkies" and then work

Morning!

That's the one Just 2 aircraft produced in 1948, which turned out to be the last aircraft from Mauboussin.
Nice one, Ken!!!!!!

'Artnoon LM and RR

Just looking in at lunchtime, but can't stay! As it's only just past 6 am in Alberta and my guess has been given the green light and seconded, I would say that my OH request stands and that someone should go ahead and post a challenge, I'm sure Brian would agree with that.
