Evening Ken.

Not an IL-103 and no connection that I can see.
We're shattered mate.

So, is there a dorsal fillet?
Many built?

Thanks Ken, no need to apologise, we've all done it!!

The memory bells began to jangle when I found the photo of the Mahindra, I think Reg posted it and I remember it had a curious "toasting fork" on the wing!!

Your control Trevor (see the previous page mate).
Thanks Graeme, I had missed that!

Another on the way, I guarantee it wont last 'til the new day!!

I know. It's funny when I was looking at it I thought it was familiar. I did my usual check of the the lists, by doing a search for NAL, nothing, then NM-5, nothing, then NM.5, nothing. I forgot to do NM5

Incidentally thought you would have got it bearing in mind where it did its first flight....Australia. It's registered owner is Gippsland! Look up VH-XNM

Trevor....I agree, control is yours.

I agree Graeme...the wing is very similar to the RWD-8. Unfortunately the rest of the aircraft isn't!

Edit, take that back. I think.it is the RWD-8. Seems its design changes depending on where you look.

If correct will have to be Open House as hitting the hay now.

I said it wouldn't last !

Well done Ken, you beat the Wizard to it

It is the Polish RWD.8 it does seem to have quite a lot of variations, this one has beefed-up U/C struts!



skytrain10 has declared an Open house

Morning Trevor.

The fin and tailskid are pure Halberstadt, but the cockpit is a long way aft.

I'll shoot for the CL IV.

Good shooting LM, just as we would expect from a true fighter pilot!!

It is the Halberstadt CL IV

Lightning Mate has control

Is the background original, 'coz it shows British made cars circa 1960 ?

A single seater and British ?

The background is original apart from the fact that I have brushed out the words on the building.

Single seat but not British, and I'll be very surprised if the cars are.........

Wot you fink the cars are?
