I can't find details of the engine, but I doubt it.

Hmm...not a Yak.

Challenge withdrawn after almost two days due to zero response.

Open House prevails since post #6040.

Morning, sorry not been around since Saturday David, but looks like nobody else has either. Intrigued by yours David - I guess it was some sort of experimental job or maybe even a UAV? Anyway best saved until there are more (or any!) players around.

Morning Ken.

It was indeed a quiet weekend - only me around.

I therefore spent a lot of time sleeving and now have eight lined up and ready to go.

Dunno whether to post one or not.

edit: I see Martin on line.

Yes, I've had a couple of those myself before Xmas...frustrating I know

I'm pretty busy today but if you've got one to post then go for it I'll be monitoring off and on through the day

Looks old but a colour background? A replica of something old, or a new aircraft that just looks old?

Ah ah...so is this effectively new, and a replica that is available as a homebuild?

No mate.

The photograph was taken in 1967. It is now in a museum.

Not available as a kit. Original was 1922.

Thanks Mel.
Here is the next one....a project.

And David, just in case you're wondering, I managed to squeeze in a little time to get this one done during my coffee break
