Is it the MB-04 Souris-Bulle?

Edit to say, we have had it before though...albeit with a different engine and therefore distinctly different front end.

A one-off from Brazil ?

Correct in this instance - I say that as the aircraft was also available as a single seater.

A one-off from Brazil ?
Nope....its from somewhere a little less exotic, and as implied above, its not a one-off.

1960's design, although wiki reports it as 1980's Enjoy the sunshine - we have it here too, but you wouldn't hang around outside without a coat - 12C.

-12C or 12C ? Where I live, you can experience both temperatures within 12 hours...(yes, 24 degrees change in 12 hours), and it is considered normal for March.

Hi Bri...+12C, but parts of the UK were due to hit +20C today! We'll probably drop to 1 or 2C tonight as its clear - due to reach 17C tomorrow. Fortunately we don't often get the extremes that you do.

All quiet so a clue....this aircraft was offered both as a factory produced or kitplane. Although the last one was produced in the early 90's, the manufacturer went on to produce perhaps more well known designs.

Closing down for the night now, so usual rules apply

Morning Ken.

Great day here - possibly +20 this afternoon.

The challenge is a bit of a sod. Might it be French?
