Thanks Terrence. Dive-bombing in a glider sounds like a one-way trip.

Also, that HAL Agri-plane seems to have been inspired from the Partenavia Aeroscooter.

Here is the next challenge:

Evening Brian, Grumman F7F-3N Tigercat?

Edit, not around this evening so if correct will have to be Open House.

Morning Karl,

Hurried look at lunch break!

Three-bladed props, radio mast, is it a Curtiss Y1A-18 or possibly the later production A-18 Shrike II ??

Thanks Karl,

Sorry for the delay guys (I know you're out there somewhere), I've been in a meeting since lunchtime !!

It'll have to be an Open House now, as I'll be busy for the rest of the afternoon. If no one takes it I'll put one up later when I get home!

Hi Martin,

No need to apologise mate, I know/think you're still in faraway places and time-zones

Good afternoon Minnesota!

It looks like it's turning out to be the Karlark and TC show doesn't it !

Martin MB-1/MB-2/NBS-1 bomber?
I thought the MB-1 had splayed interplane-struts (but I could be wrong though), but the other two are identical in silhouette, I think because of this, it ought to go on Mel's list as the Martin MB-2/NBS-1



Karlark has control

Thanks & Evening Minehead!

Just multi-tasking here at work... one more before the buzzer:



You are correct Trevor, I should have left the MB-1 out of the carpet-bombing of answers.

Morning Noyade!

I have it as the Kinner R-5 Playboy. So it is kind of both an R & P

Still at work. The buzzer must 'ave broke.
